KATE HUDSON AT THE GOLDEN GLOBES
“I went for comfort,” says of her second-skin, belted black Alexander McQueen keyhole gown with tons of embroidery around the neck. Proof that celebrities have a very different definition of comfort than the rest of us. She finishes the look with a Roger Vivier clutch and Jennifer Meyer rings.
