Should Kate Hudson Try a New Look?

12/27/2006 at 06:00 AM ET

Ever since she burst onto the scene in 2000 as Penny Lane in Almost Famous, Kate Hudson has been working a boho chic look that seems to fit perfectly with her sunny California girl good looks and giggly personality. And we love when stars develop a style that always works on them, like Jennifer Aniston‘s laid-black classics or Cate Blanchett‘s cutting edge-cool. But as we head into 2007, the haute hippie look is beginning to look a little dated — we can’t help but wonder if it’s time for Kate to switch things up a little? She could just ease off the scarves (whether on her head or her neck) the beanies and the floaty sundresses for a while. Kate consistently nails an easy glamour when she’s on the red carpet, even wearing one of our Best Dresses of the Year, so why not carry some of that sophistication over in her everyday life? Tell us: Should Kate try a new look? Or should she stick with her signature style?

it seems that kate is true to who she IS. this is her style, what she looks good and is comfortable in. she NEVER looks like she’s trying too hard (olsen twins, paris, jessica simpson), and as you stated: she looks incredible for her red carpet events. southern cally is laid back–i think she dresses appropriately (and cute!!) for her every day life.

I think that Kate should wear whatever she feels like. I really admire her style. She is a free spirit and the way she dresses reflects that.

I do think Kate could use a makeover. She is gorgeous and needs to accentuate that with a better style. When she is dressed up she glows. I know she is busy and has a small child to keep up with, that’s even more of a reason to take better care of herself. It’s time for a new look Kate!

No way!!!! I love her look and dont think it will ever go out of style. This is who she is and I think its great she could care less what any critics have to say!!

Absolutely NOT! She is who she is & she sticks with it. She has her own style & doesn’t change for the sake of the people. Keep it up Kate! Nice to see a Hollywood Mother who covers up and takes care of their children.

why can’t she just wear what she wants to wear? She is one of the few stars who is actually with her child, not partying. you want her to wear stillettos and a mini skirt? then everyone would be writing about how inappropriate she is because it would all be hanging out. she looks just fine for a young mother. that is what you wear.

Candi on

No I don’t think she needs a makeover. She is wearing everyday clothing. No, I wouldn’t wear some of the stuff she does, but that is just it. That is HER style and ALWAYS has been and she looks fantastic in it. She is still young and hip and is just doing her own thing and that is a lot more than most “young Hollywood starlets” can say.

No, I don’t think Kate needs a makeover. She’s one of the few stars who looks appropriate wherever she goes- her casual look is carefree but not sloppy, and she always looks fabulous when she dresses up for an event. Love her style!


She (and her son!) are adorable exactly as they are.
Leave her alone, she looks awesome.

Kate Hudson looks good in everything she wears. I think she is just absolutely beautiful and I love her style!
