Kate Hudson isn’t one to play favorites when it comes to fashion. When Nylon asked the actress which Italian label gets her top pick, she was hard-pressed to choose: “Oh, that’s hard. I mean Valentino’s Valentino, you know? He’s an icon. But I love Giambattista Valli,” she says, before adding, “But honestly, I love all clothes so much. It’s the best part of the morning, getting dressed.” Her enthusiasm also extends to iconic American designer Bob Mackie, who outfitted her mom, Goldie Hawn, and recalls times spent in his studio surrounded by “all these beads and sequins,” and says, “It was amazing to watch him build clothing around my mother. A great designer knows how to make a woman’s body look great, not hide it.” Hudson also acknowledges her penchant for feminine frills (“I love, like, a big ruffle here and there,”) but refuses to limit herself to any one look: “I just put on what I feel like. Some days I feel really girly, but sometimes I feel masculine. Today I just woke up and was like ‘I want to wear a suit.’ It’s Bottega Venetta, by the way.” For more of Kate’s fashion commentary go to nylonmag.com. –Emily Hsieh

Wow, how vapid. You love to get dressed. How deep.

Umm, the article is about fashion. what did you expect? most women will agree. WE LOVE CLOTHES and it’s a form of expression Manan. I don’t know this girl, but just because she loves expressing herself in the clothes she wears doesn’t make her shallow either. you can love clothes and care deeply about other things. your comment was shallow imo.

jenn on

why are you even looking at People if you’re so deep? sorry People mag.

shouldn’t you be off in some ashram or something. there are starving children i africa!

kd on

I can’t even pronounce the names of the designers…umm…can you Target?

Lita on

If I had her closet that would be my morning ritual as well. Geez what did you expect her to day making breakfast for my son? Like that’s fun

Susan on

Like seriously, let me borrow that top!

I agree with Manon (nice French name!). Kate sounds like an idiot. I doubt she wears designer clothes every day, so why does she make it seem like she does? I often see her in jeans and T-shirts. I am sure Kate didn’t mean to sound frivolous but she often does (watch out Kate, you don’t want to turn into Gwyneth Paltrow, the world’s most pretentious celeb). I like how Kate talks about her mom all the time tho. They seem so close. I just saw Foul Play for the first time. Goldie Hawn was GORGEOUS and so charismatic…love her.

Who doesn’t like to get dressed with money like Kate has? She seems like such an airhead and a bit of playgirl. She jumps around with so many different men, but I guess that is what comes from a young and spoiled child.

Come on people, it was a question that asked to her. who’s your favorite italian designer? what did you expect her to say? Levi’s and Hanes?

“I just put on what I feel like.”

I’m just amazed at how people can jump to conclusions. she’s had like 2 boyfriends in the last 5 years. how do you know that the men were the ones who messed it up? let’s see, there was Owen Wilson, the drug addict and A Rod …need i say more? and from that you deduct that she’s young and spoiled?

she NEVER said she wears designer clothes everyday either.

where you do people come up with your opinions? how about basing your opinion on facts? there’s a novel idea.
