Kate Hudson's Lunch Date Cheap Chic

04/04/2007 at 01:31 PM ET

Kate Hudson just gave us one more reason to be inspired by her style. With all the fabulous designer clothes at her disposal, the sunny actress chose an adorable and affordable white dress to wear out to lunch with Owen Wilson recently. Kate’s crocheted white dress is a new style from Ella Moss and is available for $154 at bloomingdales.com. Sadly, her stylish “Antigone” sandals are Chanel and a bit more pricey — $650 at select CHANEL Boutiques, 800-550-0005. And a hot date with Owen Wilson? Priceless.

KT from Cda on

A very pretty dress. Great for someone who is thin but if it was on a heavier person it could look like a maternity dress. Maybe. A bit pricy. As for the shoes, like a few pieces of leather are worth that! The only reason why designers charge so much is b/c stars are foolish enough to spend as much as designers dream up something to be worth.

Beth on

A $154 dress is NOT affordable in my household!! And even if it was, I would know better than to wasted that kind of money on one dress!

Dawn on

This looks more like a shirt these dresses are cute and all but for real life they are to short for the everyday woman. My opinion.

kristina on

love the shoes and the dress yea maybe a bit pricey but thats what she works for right?and if the girl likes the clothes then y not?

Elda on

love the dress and she looks great but the price! anyways i agree with KT, i live on a budget.

Anna on

She looks cute…BUT…I’m not sure what People pays, but $154 for a sundress is not exactly “affordable” for the average shopper. Now, the “I’m not a plastic bag” canvas bag they featured for $10 is amazing, but paying over $100 for it on ebay is ridiculous. Is there a way to get the bag for a reasonable price?

carol on

I totally agree with the others! Way too much money for a summer frock! Get real people…i have more important things to buy – like gasoline!!!!!!!

AnnieM on

Love this look. I’d buy that dress, but I can’t bring myself to spend much on shoes (I’m too hard on them and it is never worth it – scuffs and whatnot).

Le Le on

She’s looks adorable!

Jenn on

The dress is cute. I like it but $154 is definitely not affordable in my book. And please someone tell me why you would spend $650 on a pair of sandals?! Can anyone justify that reason? If you have $650 extra bucks to blow on sandals, then maybe you should think about putting that money towards something good like charity or something!

enigma on

I agree with and share the same feelings with KT frm Cda and Elda too! Cheers Mates!!

KC on

The dress is so cute, but my question is since when did $150 become “cheap”? There something really wrong with that!

Alice on

She always looks adorable.

Mary on

A $154 dress is easily affordable for me, although I’d be more likely to buy a dress like that it were $100 or less. The dress is cute, but I think it’s a tad too short for my taste.

Mary on

They said “affordable”, not cheap. $154 is affordable compared to the $1000 designer dresses that other celebs wear.

Ashley on

Gotta love Kate – I think she is stunning. However, the dress is waaay to much $ for me. But for her it’s prolly like spending $20 – if that. She looks so great, and I’m very happy for her. She makes a great couple with Owen.

Helda on

I was going to email in and ask where I could get a similar dress… I agree, a $150 price tag for a summer dress is NOT cheap or even affordable! It’s okay though, it looks beautiful on her. Not for everyone.

Um on

Mary, they call it “Cheap Chic”. Learn to read.

Jen on

Definitely a cute dress. PEOPLE, how about finding us a steal for that dress?

Lynn on

The dress is cute but its way to much $$$$$.

AnnieM on

Right on Mary!

Heather S. on

Cheap? The only thing I could do spending $150 on a dress like that is give dear hubby a heart attack! Although I somehow manage to justify any price for a pair of well-loved shoes:)

lisa L on

That dress is so cute white little dresses are becoming the staples of summer! It would look even cuter with a belt, bluefly.com has some great brown hippie belts for cheap!

Dawn on

Jen go to Forever21.com they have lots of mini’s for under 30 bucks

JH on

She looks sooo cute! I love all the new loose, short dresses. Too bad they would only look good on someone with long, thin legs. As someone else pointed out, it could easily end up looking like maternity wear…especially on someone who has shorter legs and larger thighs like me. The price is great compared to most clothes celebrities wear but, alas, still not affordable for me.

Shel on

I bought a similar dress at Target a couple of weeks ago, for under $30. It was more of a scoop neck, and had a tie in the back so you could give yourself a little more shape, plus it’s a bit longer (but then not every woman has Kate’s awesome legs) so being a bit longer may not be such a bad thing. All in all, though, it’s the perfect little dress for a lunch and shopping date, or even going to the lake or something. Too cute!

Denise on

Ella Moss dresses are great for the summer. If that’s too much money for you to spend consider opening a credit account at Bloomingdales, Nordstrom, Barney’s or Saks.

For cheap but fashionable finds I suggest shopping at H&M. The quality and fit of the clothes is much better than anything you would find at Target and just as affordable.

Kristen on

All I can say is thank heavens for Forever 21 and H&M!

Kitty on

It needs a big belt.

erica on

don’t get me wrong, i kind of like the baby doll look, but lately women’s clothing looks like little girl clothing. I can’t wait for more womanly, body conscious clothes to come back “in style”.

Danica on

I found almost an exact replica at nordstroms.com in the juniors dresses. It’s way more affordable at $63 and is made by velvet torch

beth on

it is cute- a bit to pricy for me though. i think these dresses look cute with jeans under them- it makes them more casual for everyday life.

night on

looks like a T-shirt, and she forgot the pants.

Lily on

that dress is ADORABLE. they sell it at nordstroms too in the savvy department. and it comes in blue. its so cute. i think $154 for a well made dress by a well known designer is a good price.

RN on

i would spend 300$ on that dress. its beautiful

amber on

154 dollars for a dress is cheap? Umm not for me sorry thats a little expensive for me but i guess its cheap for a millionaire lol Kates dress is cute though.

grace g on

You can get a dress very similar to that at Target or Old Navy for less than $40. She does look great tho!

Maryse on

I like the dress, it’s very cutesie. I would definitely wear this dress. However, like pretty much everyone else has said, $154 is too much to spend on just a simple cute dress, I couldn’t bring myself to shell out the money. Kate looks great by the way.

Alessia on

I don’t think 154$ are too much for a beatiful dress…it’s an average price for a medium-high quality dress here in Italy, perfect for people who cannot buy designer dresses.

liz on

the dress is cute on her. too expensive for me but shes a star so she can afford it

Keira on

I love this dress. Kate Hudson is one of my favorite stars. She is so beautiful. I went to bloomingdales.com but the dress was not there! So, that’s kind of like false advertising! haha. But its ok. I love the sandals to! It’s a shame that they are $650 bucks! Thats outrageous. But they are sooooo cute!

Debbie on

The dress itself is beautiful. On Kate? It is a little young (and short) for her.

kaitlin on

I love it. I am so buying it. I would think it would be a littlw more expensive.

magic on


Jennifer on

I love it!! So fresh looking!! I would wear this to beach for sure :).

Lauren on

i love the dress! i think i will buy one to wear to the beach!

Lynn on

Does anyone know who the designer is of the purple racer back halter that Sloan was wearing on Entourage 4/15?

tanya on

does any one know what brand of sunglasses she is wearing??

Rhiannon on

Kate looks so amazing in that Ella Moss dress!
I was so happy to see her in it. I bought that EXACT same dress at Nordstrom about 2 months ago.
It looks beautiful on her and me:]
