Kate Hudson: I laugh at worst dressed lists

Kate Hudson “laughed [her] ass off” with Stella McCartney when her designer Oscars dress received negative press.

The Hollywood actress was speaking at the British Fashion Awards (BFAs) last night, where Stella picked up the Red Carpet of the Year award.

Kate says although Stella may have won one of the most coveted fashion honours at the event, she doesn’t always get it right.

"Stella dressed me for my first red carpet event in 2001 for the Academy Awards. It was my first and only nomination. I was 21 years old and to have Stella McCartney dressing me - well I felt like the hippest, coolest girl in the world,” she recalled in an interview with Vogue.co.uk.

“Up until the last minute Stella was working away, hand-sewing the hem. I woke up the next morning in my bed post-awards and without a little statuette. I turned on the television to find out I was on every Worst Dressed list possible. So I called Stella and we just laughed our asses off and she said to me, ‘Look babe, it was the hair wasn't it?’”

Despite the dress not getting rave reviews, Kate still has a soft spot for the gown. The stunning star isn’t prepared for it not be worn another time.

"To this day that now vintage dress hangs in my wardrobe, but I swear one day I'll wear it again," she laughed.

    2015 Nissan Murano aims for the style-forward crowd

    Nissan says its 2015 Murano crossover, only the second major revamp of the car since it debuted in 2003, draws its design cues from the “age of future space flight.” That’s probably taking it a little far, but the new Murano, based off the 2013 Resonance concept vehicle, is an exceptionally lovely machine, all fluid, curved metal on the outside, and flowing, soft-touch materials on the inside. Certain kinds of comfort and charms that were unheard-of outside of premium vehicles five years ago have definitely trickled down, and reached a kind of design apotheosis with this car.

    Volkswagen brings new (ish) Jetta to New York along with Golf Sportwagen

    With its new President and CEO of America, Michael Horn, on stage in New York after just 100 days on the job, Volkswagen debuted its 2015 Jetta. You'd be forgiven for noticing little differences compared to the outgoing model, and in the words of Horn himself, the changes are indeed subtle. The most notable of those subtleties is the all-new 2.0 liter turbo diesel motor, offering 45 mpg highway and a modest increase of 10 hp. For VW, diesel is where it's at.

    With Vantage GT, Aston Martin races below $100,000

    Aston Martin is going downmarket, sort of. The 2015 Vantage GT, a sport-styled variant of Aston’s legendary flagship car, draws style and performance tips from their GT4 race cars, which will be running in North America this year. It’s also priced at $99,900, which shows that the market for these kinds of consumer sports cars has boomed in recent years.
