Kate Hudson: 'I Can't Afford to Buy' the Dresses I Wear on Red Carpets!

Posted on

Kate Hudson may be known for her red carpet glamour (some major moments can be seen here, here and here — and they also happen to be her favorites from the last year) but she wants to set the record straight on one thing: Those gowns go back the minute she takes them off.

“People think we own all these dresses,” she says in the December/January issue of Harper’s Bazaar, “but we borrow them! I can’t afford to buy that stuff. There are certain things I splurge on, but it’s very rare, especially when you have two kids and school tuition. I’m not a big high-end fashion shopper. I wish I could, but the truth is things are just so expensive.”

She credits some of that frugal attitude to being raised right by Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, and she always keeps it in mind when she’s thinking about her own fashion partnerships, with Ann Taylor and Fabletics (so far). “I really think that if I’m going to put my effort into something, I want to reach a larger amount of women, where they can afford the things I’m selling,” she says. “Especially with the economy. It doesn’t make sense to me anymore.”

To learn about her red carpet style crushes (they’re pretty similar to ours), her take on increasingly naked pop stars and the way she stays in shape even she’s not in the mood, check out the story on HarpersBazaar.com or in the new issue, on stands Nov. 26.

Are you surprised that she saves on clothes? Have you checked out her collections?
