Fug or Fab: Kate Hudson


fug-or-fab

Well, her bod looks great — clearly, working out with Tracy Anderson (also Gywnnie’s trainer. COINCIDENCE? OR EVIDENCE??) is keeping her in fine fettle. But what of the gown? Beware, basically bare butt cheeks lurk within.

What say you?

    No pic yet, but I’ve seen it on T-Lo. If her dress shifts at all, we get full-on butt crack.
    So, too vulgar.

    Ii know I should hate this, but I just can’t for some reason. I don’t know how, but she’s pulling it off.

    I would be terrified that those thin rows of beading would snap when I tried to sit. I do think she is rocking it though.

    Yesterday at the bus stop I saw a teenage girl wearing denim shorts so short I could see the bottoms of her butt cheeks. I just shook my head and thought, “Really? It’s ok to show butt cheeks now and not at a swimming pool?” So basically, Kate Hudson has reminded me of a teenager getting on the bus wearing ugly, unhygienic looking clothes. Nice!

      I will admit, though, overall she looks really pretty. Just don’t look too close. :)

    Kate Hudson is one of those gals whose sartorial style I often like. For example, I absolutely adored that strapless bohemian dress she wore to the Golden Globes in 2003–one of my favorite dresses, ever. So, this is…a disappointment. It’s just so bad–the way the back cuts into her flesh, the “runs” in the dress that expose inappropriate things… I don’t understand what kind of statement she’s making about herself with this dress–maybe “I tanned my butt?” Or, “two kids and would you just look at my ass cheek–that is an amazingly toned ass cheek, don’t you agree? I said…DON’T YOU AGREE? No seriously, I need you to validate my ass cheek. Tell me I’m a beautiful and sexy and desirable woman.”

      I agree about that dress from 2003 (Oscar de la Renta if I remember correctly)!

      Honestly, Kate Hudson doesn’t have much talent, so she does what she has to do to stay in the public eye. She’s like a blonde Katy Perry. If you have the artistic chops, you don’t have to do stuff like this.

    i really like the dress, would prefer it if it didn’t show so much. she is just so so pretty though. especially when she laughs.

    I think if this dress were lined, it would be gorgeous. Also, Kate Hudson carries sparkly neutral colored dresses amazingly! Her 2003 oscars dress immediately comes to mind. Something about her skin tone just works in neutrals, unlike most of the rest of us

      She really does. It’s because her skin really does have a naturally golden undertone. She’s basically radiant and I think she’s been looking especially great lately.

    I think she should have worn it with big old ladies white underpants underneath. Now that would have been something to see!

    I clicked the link…you warned me but I did it anyway – my eyes!!!!!! I’m just going to try and focus on how cute Kate Hudson looks in the first photo. Girl gives good laugh.

    No…there it is again…burned on my retinas…having seen the worst I’d say Kate Hudson’s bum cheeks are positively demure!

    • Leelee

      I clicked it too, despite the very clear warning. My soul is sad now.
      Regarding Ms Hudson, she has a very nice bum but perhaps the whole pantless-peekaboo thing is something she really didn’t need to do for attention. If you have been working hard on toning that bad boy then look into a dress like Julianne Hough’s neon number from a while back. That got everyone talking about how great her ass is, without her actually getting it out on a red carpet.

        I too need to go poke out my eyes with a fork to remove the sight of Lohan’s ladybits- ouch!!
        Should have listened, that was terribly painful!

    Surprising myself, I love this. Unreservedly.

    I think it works in both overall cut, fit, and color, love the way it drapes, love the choice to have both straps on one side. And to my eye, the sexy tease of flesh is sufficiently subtle that it’s only noticeable just how much is actually visible if you’re really, really looking, when she isn’t moving, and from revealing angles as well. Which, of course, we are! ;-)

    And that’s fine IMO. Sexy in a more understated way in person, and then also just shocking enough in photos to be an attention-grabber. To me that seems like a good balance. Very movie-star.

    Overall, I give it a “smashing.”

    • Sandra

      Um, if that’s subtle, what counts as obvious and trashy in your lexicon? It’s perfectly okay that we differ on this, I’m just wondering what range we’re talking about.

      I know this is the 21st century and all, but Grace Kelly was a movie star. She knocked ‘em dead completely clothed. It can be done.

        If it’s okay that we differ, then there’s no need to be so snotty about it.

        Subtle IN PERSON, I said. I think it would be. We’re looking at a real close-up of her fanny. No one’s going to get that near to it with their actual faces when they’re talking to her. At least, I hope not! :-D

          Okay. I still hate the dress, but I understand your point.

          Thanks. Usually I prefer much more modest things! Like how Reese Witherspoon or Michelle Williams will often dress. Ladylike.

          That’s why I was so surprised to find that I liked this. If I see one more starlet with her dress cut down to her navel, I may toss my cookies.

    I should hate the butt baring but I can’t help it. I think she looks bloody fantastic in this dress. Her body is flawless and the part of me with body image issues kind of wants to kill myself.

    I particularly like how she is managing not to look like a desperate attention seeker. I mean she is seeking attention, obviously. She just doesn’t look as though her heart would break if she didn’t get it. She looks like she’s having fun.

    • pidget

      That’s it exactly – she still seems relaxed and happy with many parts potentially exposed, so she’s carrying it off gracefully. The colour is beautiful on her, too. On anyone else (Lea Michele…) yikes of desperation. On KH, free-spirited, spritely and cheeky.

    No comment on the dress. But love her hair. She should wear it like that more often.

    Why couldn’t this have had an entire skin-toned layer underneath? So that it looked the same without the fear of crack and nipples. The style of the dress and even the colour do look nice, but the nakedness is not necessary. She has a great bod that would have transferred well through the dress without proving to me that she has skin on her ass.

    So there’s her butt. Maybe I am just too old but she leaves me flat. A prime case of nepotism abuse.

    I’m torn. Normally I would be all over option b: I like it but I wish it were less bare…. but on the other hand, it’s such a nice butt and though,even if it were mine, I would not do such a thing – celebrities aren’t like you and me, and what’s “normal”, “okay” and “fun” for them are most often (I would think), a long ways away from what those words mean to us.

    So… love it from the front (and love how it makes her look so looooooooong and lean) – I’m iffy on the butt.

    I would be 100% in love with this dress sans butt exposure.

    I wanted to point out – Lainey has it wrong. The dress they point to isn’t the correct one – here it is – and the straps are designed to be worn as KH is wearing them.

    I think it’s turning what would be a pretty dress into something VERY TACKY. It doesn’t help that I’ve liked her in one movie, “Almost Famous, ” and maybe “Nine.” Otherwise, no.

    I totally love this. Normally I would hate the butt showing, but she has the kind of personality that allows her to pull it off. Plus, it’s not like boobs and butt and short….it’s the edge of her butt. Big deal. Women show off wayyyyy more cleave on a regular basis then this little sliver of butt.

      I think one of the more interesting things about this site is what people view as a shade on the wrong side of vulgar because it varies so much for people (for example, I often like side boob, which a lot of people hate). I definitely wouldn’t say that butt edge is per se vulgar. However, here the exact execution is problematic in that if the dress shifts just a little to the right and/or she bends forward just slightly, we are subject to a rear-angle view of her vagina. I’m not going to use a euphemism there. I’m using the actual word so that the gravity of that statement can be felt.

        The actual word would be vulva, not vagina. You’d need a speculum to see anyone’s vagina.

    She’s a beautiful woman, and I think the dress looks fantastic on her, but I little less butt cheek would have classed it up nicely. A nude lining, maybe? Just a tad less naked and I think it would be perfection.

    And while we’re at it, can we have a round of applause to Kate for keeping her perky little boobs? Big fake gazongas would have RUINED this dress!

    • Barbara

      Agree – the dress is just on the line between sexy and too-much, but large boobs would have pushed it all the way into vulgar terrritory.

      As for the picture of Lohan – I have no words.

    I agree that the butt cheek is a tad tacky….yet I still think she looks amazing.
    But I have to be honest, if my behind looked like that – I’d be wearing that dress while I was buying groceries at Kroger.

    It’s more of Kate Hudson than I’ve ever wanted to see.

    I am probably the only member of Fug Nation who was not a fan of all of the crackage sported by the divers (men) at the Olympics. They were beautiful, beautiful men with incredible bodies, but I was not crazy about the cracks. Maybe I just have a crack thing. I didn’t like the crack cleavage on Simon LeBon’s wife many years ago either.

    This is a gorgeous dress, but if I don’t think the smokin’ hot Olympic divers can pull off the crack look, I am sure as hell not going to get behind this attempt. Kate looks amazing, but I don’t really want to see that much detail. I would love this dress if not for the runs.

    She looks fabulous. Not a fan of the peek a boo butt. Plus the close ups make me itchy. Who wants to sit bare assed on strings of beads?

    I realize this is going to make me sound like great-aunt Edith, but what ever happened to a little mystery? Her ass is, indeed fantastic, but you could easily see that without the actual Tectonic Dress Shift making it so obvious. I’m sure that, in person, this was a lot more subtle, but it also seems like this is the top of the slippery slope at the bottom of which you land in Lohan-Kardashian Canyon.

    Or, possibly, I should just go join a convent.

    I’m in the “love it” camp. Normally, I’d be appalled, but something about it is working for me. 1. She’s laughing and not vamping out all over the place. 2. That COLOR on her, good lord. 3. Her BODY is stellar. I think Kate can pull off cheeky. She’s not my favorite, but I understand this. I prefer conservative clothing about 99% of the time on 99% of people. This is one of my rare 1% moments. Also, on my fattest day, my husband would still clutch his pearls in stunned admiration if I wore that dress, and that would make me feel pretty damn good.

      “She’s laughing and not vamping out all over the place”

      That is a good point…I DO love it when women have fun, and don’t work so hard at doing the glare-and-pout. Smiling is sexy IMO.

    I (that was a link to LiLo’s bare crotch) … think? … I have a (OMG link to LiLo’s bare crotch) … thought or an (LiLo’s bare crotch that was) … um, opinion about … Kate (mumble mumble mumble link to LiLo’s bare crotch) Hudson … or whatever her name … her butt (Oh God I just saw LiLo’s bare crotch) …

    I’m sorry. I can’t focus on the topic at crotch anymore. I mean, the topic at hand. Oh. My. God.

    I think she has a great butt, but a more subtle presentation would be a lot classier. This makes her look desperate to me. Perhaps if her career was doing better, I wouldn’t think this was such a tacky move. Maybe if the sheer was next to her cheek, but not actually right over it I would like it more.

    After I composed myself from the Lilo link (My eyes! My eyes!!), I’ll note that this would have been perfect without the ass-revealing run in the crotchet in back. That kind of thing is worthy only of POW (People Of Walmart), where revealed nether cheeks are called “bottom biscuits”. She should have gone with the blue rather than this oatmeal shade, as well.

    Well – this business of wearing sheer long gowns over a half slip or spankies has in the past make me say, sheesh, either be naked or line the whole thing; if you want to be bare, be all bare! And – here it is. At least she had the stones to wear it the way it was meant to be, and that is a spectacular ass. What ruins it for me is the front – a wee bit more structure there would have helped her a lot.

    Gorgeous. It’s a fine line (ahem) that she is toeing, but she pulls it off. It helps that her bum is toned — any wobble would read as vulgar to me.

    The dress would be so boring if it were lined.
