Ever since I saw actress Kate Hudson doing a brilliant turn as the dreamy 70s groupie Penny Lane in Almost Famous, I’ve had a bit of a fashion crush on her. With her blonde waves hair, golden skin, bubbling laugh and sweet smile, she was the epitome of laidback California cool. Whether she’s out shopping in a sloppy maxi-skirt and shades, or at an event looking relaxed and on-trend in a blazer jacket and tuxedo jacket, she always manages to look amazing without trying too hard. And it’s been a good a year for her – she’s embarked on a long-term relationship with Muse singer Matt Bellamy, shot a cover for Elle magazine and now, it’s recently been announced, has fallen pregnant with Bellamy’s child. She’s just one of the various gorgeous celebrities to have recently announced pregnancies, but we think she’s going to be one of the yummiest mummies of the year. We can’t wait to see how she styles up her baby bump.
So here’s Shiny Style’s fashion salute to the fabulous Miss Hudson – congratulations on the pregnancy, Kate, and keep on doing what you’re doing! Here’s a gallery of her best outfits over the past year.
Only a tanned, svelte California beauty like Kate could pull off this beautifully simple backless number
