Kate Hudson in a denim patchwork Balmain dress for HBO premiere: tragic or cute?

Here are some new photos of Kate Hudson at last night’s premiere of the HBO movie Clear History. You know what’s weird? This TV movie has a great cast, but almost none of them showed up to the premiere. No Jon Hamm, no Eva Mendes, etc. But Kate was there, and she wore this Balmain Resort 2014 mini-dress. And no, your eyes are not fooling you – the dress is DENIM. Not just denim, but denim patchwork!!! But it’s not like it’s some hippie-dippy denim dress, it’s like Balmain is trying to making denim patchwork into some high-concept, rich-looking dress. Did they succeed? I do not think so. Plus, the dress barely covers her butt.

While I was going through these premiere photos, I noticed this closeup of her ring – look at this thing!!

Is that the engagement ring Matt Bellamy gave her? If so, kudos to you, Bellamy. That’s an amazing ring. I would marry the guy who offered me that ring, no problem. Of course, she might have just borrowed a fabulous ring for the premiere.

I’m also including some photos of Kate and her boys arriving at LAX a few days ago. Ryder finally got a haircut, and I swear he looks so much like his dad Chris Robinson. Bing Bellamy is still a baby/toddler so I can’t really see anything but mega-blonde hair. Kate Hudson only makes blonde babies. Also: her jeans are tragic. What is with Kate and all of the denim?

    I think her jeans are awesome. Love me a bit of acid wash

  2. Turtle Dove says:

    The dress is really cute, and the jeans are atrocious. Kate’s aging nicely. She looks really healthy.

    Aside, the angle in the last photo makes it look like Kate is pulling that woman by her ear.

  3. Amy says:

    Bless her for walking closely enough with the nanny to have her in the shot. Also, confession time: I like the denim dress. Maybe not for a premiere, but a night out for sure (assuming I had the figure for it). The silver thread and all the detailing elevate the denim.

  4. Willa says:

    I noticed her fingers more than that ring!

  5. Azurea says:

    Hideous! She would have done better to wear the airport outfit. And just to be a wee bit snarky, Kate has a spider vein on her thigh. Hurray! She’s like us!

  6. Stef Leppard says:

    That is her real engagement ring from Bellamy.

  7. SmokeyBlues says:

    I hate that dress. It makes my blood boil!

  8. Jenn says:

    The dress is awful, but her legs look amazing!

  9. Bernice says:

    Kate’s face looks like she has had recent work done. I am not sure what, but there is a difference. She looks less like “Kate Hudson” then she used to look! She looks lovely though!

  10. mazzystar says:

    That dress would look awful on anyone but her, somehow she making that patchwork mess work. Darn Kate & her perfect legs & ass!

    And oh yes, that ring is most certainly her own ring from Matt. That’s probably my favorite celeb engagement ring out there. But I’d marry Matt, with or without a 9-carat ring!

    Everyone keeps going on about how Miley has such an awesome body… but I think the body we should all be waxing lyrical about is Kate Hudson’s. HER body is insane! When Miley did that protect your skin advert my first thought was that she has a great body for clothes, but her figure is not attractive nude (too boyish and lacking of curves). Kate has fantastic legs and an awesome butt. I don’t mind the dress.

    • lylaooo says:

      im so tired of Miley! and yes i donpt think her body is amazing..she doesn´t look good on her naked campaing …and yes Kate has an amazing body and she is pretty and funny i dont care if she´s not the greatest actress.. i enjoy her movies!

    • Jayna says:

      I agree. I don’t find Miley’s body amazing. Kate’s on the other hand, wow, she wears clothes beautifully. I so that movie, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days the other day, and they had her in tailored blouses and pencil skirts and she looked amazing. She has beautiful lines to her body the way clothes look on her and gowns and great legs. And the scene with Kate in her panties in the movie with Owen Wilson and Matt Dillon was fantastic. She just looked adorable.

  12. Louise says:

    she is not pulling that off

  13. Mandy says:

    I kind of like her dress??? I don’t know why, I just do! She looks so much better with her hair down, too.

  14. Andrea says:

    I think the dress is sort of cute but I have never understood why Kate Hudson remains a star outside of having famous parents.

  15. Arthur says:

    I vote for tragic. Those black pumps with the jeans?? Gross. The dress is OK but she always seems the opposite of natural in any of her photos. It’s all soooo posed – how is that hippie/flower child?

  16. Dawn says:

    I don’t get her appeal. She is not that pretty, she does have her mother’s smile and she bounced back from having her 2nd baby. But other than that if she had to rely only on her acting ability and not her mother’s fame I don’t believe that she would have made it in the industry. I’ve heard that she is a real bitch to those who she believes does not have her financial standing. Her brother Oliver on the other hand is supposedly the cool one.

  17. janie says:

    She looks adorable! I think another couple of inches wouldn’t hurt. I love her, she is always cute! She has the sweetest nature and is really a good actress. So I vote…Yes, cute!

  18. Gayle says:

    Isn’t her son a little old to still have a pacifier??

  19. littlemissnaughty says:

    Love her. She looks great. She really got her mom’s hands though, right?

  20. Jayna says:

    Jennifer Aniston, take note how beautiful Kate’s skin tone looks, lightly sunkissed and luminous, not an overly baked suntanned face like you keep doing where your eyes or lips don’t pop.

    Her legs look great in the dress and hair looks great.

  21. carol says:

    tragic. A smokey eye looks great on her though – she should do that more often

  22. Nicolette says:

    It looks cute on her. Don’t know what she’s done, a little work I think, but she looks great.

  23. annaloo. says:

    OMG, her hands! They look much older thanI expected…:-(

  24. Susie Q says:

    I love the bottom of the dress, the top, not so much. Her hands look odd.

  25. lisa says:

    it’s like a special occasion dress for ellie mae clampitt

  26. Emily C. says:

    That dress is one of the most hideous I have ever seen. And the jeans look like something I would have worn when I was 10 years old. With a bunch of jelly bracelets. Ugh.

  27. Chell says:

    I think I would hate that dress on the hanger, but Kate somehow manages to pull it off, she looks really cute!
    Those jeans in the other pics are a whole different story…WOWZA! Not a good look Kate!

  28. Jayna says:

    She’s on an airplane on probably a transatlantic flight. Those jeans make sense then, comfy on a long flight.

  29. april says:

    Love her. She’s so adorable and happy. I love her engagement ring also. The dress I don’t like at all and the jeans are fine for the occasion.

  30. Alexa says:

    OK – With the exception of her fashion choices, KH is looking a little TOO GOOD for my liking! WTF? Isn’t she over 30? And didn’t she just have her second kid? So WHY does she look so much younger, fresher, tighter, and flawless than she ever has in the last 15 years or so? (UGH! No Fair! ;-)

  31. homegrrl says:

    1st thought, rocking legs. She does look healthy and good. Her baby is young, and she knows how to wear a sling. babies like closeness. good for her

  32. pandabear says:

    love the jeans! hate the dress and her gaudy ring! love her hair! ryder is completely the cutest!

  33. boredbrit says:

    God that ring is AWFUL. Its the kind that come free with twee kid magazines. She looks great though. Minus the dress.

  34. Kelly says:

    She models for Ann Taylor which I never understood. So not her style. Dress is ok.

  35. Mia says:

    Just because it’s designer doesn’t make it cute. This dress is the epitome of fugtastic. Her baby looks 10 kinds of adorable in that sling though.

  36. E-v-E says:

    I wish she wore some more edgy shoes with that dress (Jennifer Connelly, the perfect Balmain model), and that airport styling is horrible, she just does not have any fashion sense and I even liked her more in her boho outfits-period. And before Bellamy. Then again, I liked Matt more before Kate. She gives me this bitchy vibe, like Reese and her acting is meh. Cute kids. Guess the days of young hot Hollywood nannies are over..not that I’m implying anything >:)

  37. LahdidahBaby says:

    1. Would hate the dress but can’t bring myself to hate anything that has given me such a belly-laugh.

    2. Don’t particularly admire Kate’s acting chops,, but have long admired her style…and the chic, I-don’t-give-a-sh*t simplicity of outfits like this jeans-cum-baby-hammock-and heels is a perfect example of why. Effortless, right to the messy bun. A+

    3. I too would perform many kindnesses for (and upon) the man who presented me with such a ring as that one. (And yes, her fingers do look oddly swollen up close…time for a physical exam, i’d say, considering that all the rest of her is perfectly lean.

    4. Both kids are f’ing adorbs. Nice job procreating, Kate Hudson. A+ again.
