Kate Hudson has no regrets over posing nude for a past photoshoot because she “likes being naked”.

In an interview to celebrate the 25th anniversary of U.S. InStyle magazine, the How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days actress reflected on her eight covers for the publication.

Kate focused on the time she stripped off for her controversial 2001 cover and discussed how the criticism didn’t affect her, even when the magazine was banned from some stores.

“Whatever, we sold a whole bunch of them,” she quipped. “To be honest, it doesn’t take a lot for me to take my clothes off. People can say whatever they want, but I like being naked. Always have!

“I was newly married (to her now ex-husband Chris Robinson), and my whole career had just shot up after (2000 film) Almost Famous came out. I posed naked for the cover, and I was strategically draped with what was basically chain mail. The stylist had a very hard job!”

Kate went on to note that photoshoots in the early 2000s were much more relaxed.

“That time in my life was so much fun. There were no cell phones or social media or ‘content’. It was way more intimate and special,” the 40-year-old mused.

She also spoke about her 2003 cover, in which she was expecting her first child, son Ryder, and recalled how she refused to give up stilettos and told editors that she hoped to be “fashionably pregnant”.

Since then, she’s welcomed son Bingham, eight, with ex-fiance Matt Bellamy, and 10-month-old daughter Rani Rose, with boyfriend Danny Fujikawa.

“I was 24 and back then I really didn’t give up my high heels. But 15 years later, during this last pregnancy, I sure did,” she laughed.

Kate Hudson is planning to hit the high street with new designs from her first ready-to-wear line.

The Almost Famous actress is already a fashion mogul with her popular online subscription activewear brand, Fabletics, but now fans don’t have to sign up to wear her creations – the is gearing up to send her clothes to brick and mortar stores.

“ANNOUNCING my first ever ready-to-wear line called HAPPY X NATURE!” she wrote on Instagram on Thursday (28Mar19) in a caption attached to a campaign video for her new clothes. “We’re almost ready! Get your sneak peek @happyxnatureofficial (sign up at happyxnature.com LINK IN BIO) Striving to make you and nature happy Hope you love it!”

Kate dons some of her designs in the campaign advertisement she shared on Instagram, with the star wearing cute casual pieces such as jean overalls, a beige jumpsuit, a yellow summer dress and other everyday garments.

The actress, who welcomed her third child, a daughter, in October (18) with her boyfriend Danny Fujikawa, has been in the fashion business since 2013 when she launched Fabletics.

The inclusive brand, which offers athleisure gear from sizes zero to 30, will celebrate its sixth year in business in July, and Kate has previously spoken about her desire to make a positive difference in people’s lives through her clothing ventures.

“I don’t believe that you can have a company that is about inspiring and empowering women and not include everyone,” she told Stylecaster.

Pregnant actress Kate Hudson is expanding her Fabletics activewear range to include new clothing weekly.

The subscription based athleisure label has been a huge success since its 2013 launch by the Almost Famous star, and Kate and her partners have decided to introduce exciting fresh additions to their clothing line-up in honour of the achievements they’ve reached in five years of business.

“When we launched Fabletics, it was about more than just selling activewear,” she writes in a statement. “We set out to create an inclusive community, where we could make an active lifestyle fun and accessible. I never imagined that in just five years we would have 1.4 million inspiring and powerful women in our community that we engage with daily.

“Hearing their stories of how we’ve helped them along their journey are what truly inspires and drives us… We’re celebrating by delivering even better fit, fabric, style and performance that we know our members will love, all at the same amazing value, for which Fabletics is known.”

In addition to featuring weekly capsule collections, Fabletics designers are offering new state-of-the-art performance fabrics in the brand’s clothes, including SculptKnit, a compressed textile created for sweaty, high-impact workouts that offers extra flexibility and support.

The revamped Cashel legging will combine the label’s signature soft PowerForm fabric with breathable mesh in addition to a foldover waistband and other design features that allows for versatility of wear.

Finally, a new take on Fabletics sports bras is on offer, including the Zoe Sports Bra, which boasts moldable cups, breathable mesh inserts and other technical fabrics designed to bolster support during fitness sessions.

The new Fabletics apparel is available starting this month (Sep18).

Kate Hudson is set to create her own fashion line for New York & Company.

The Almost Famous actress, known for her sophisticated red carpet style, has already made moves into the fashion world with her popular activewear line, Fabletics.

However, Kate is now about to follow in the footsteps of celebrities such as Eva Mendes and Gabrielle Union as she has signed on to spearhead her own ready-to-wear collection for the New York-based womenswear retailer.

“It has always been important for me to partner with companies that share my values and creative vision. I love the quality of materials and fabrics New York & Co. uses,” she explained to WWD. “Their size ranges and affordable price points, along with their commitment to empowering women through fashion makes New York & Co. an ideal partner for me to launch my new collection with.”

As part of the deal, Kate will develop a main collection of clothes consisting of “statement casual” tops, sweaters, sportswear, denim and dresses. The items will be sold in New York & Co.’s boutiques and website, with label bosses hoping to set up a dedicated digital platform for the range too.

In addition, the blonde star will also act as a brand ambassador for the company’s Soho Jeans category.

“Our customers have been asking for a partnership with Kate for years,” Greg Scott, chief executive officer of New York & Co, commented. “We believe her star power, style and broad social influence will not only strengthen our relationships with existing customers but also ignite our customer acquisition initiatives.”

And 39-year-old Kate, who is currently expecting a baby daughter with her partner Danny Fujikawa, will be taking a hands-on approach to the entire collection.

“Kate has a million ideas for silhouettes, prints and fabrics,” Greg added. “As a business partner with us, Kate’s going to support her collection in many ways, just like Eva and Gabrielle support their lines, socially, at store events and public relations events.”

A release date for Kate’s line has not yet been announced.

Kate Hudson gave up soccer dream to pursue stardom

Kate Hudson could have become a professional soccer player.

The 38-year-old daughter of Hollywood legend Goldie Hawn has become a huge star in her own right, with roles in movies such as Almost Famous and Bride Wars under her belt.

But Kate has revealed in an interview with Vogue.co.uk that she initially considered an entirely different career.

“I was very serious about soccer, growing up,” she explained. “It was actually something that I could have pursued in terms of college, but I didn’t because I wanted to act and sing and dance.

“What really happened was I danced for a lot of my life. Then soccer got very competitive for me and so that kind of took over and I didn’t dance so much. But then I realised I didn’t want to seriously pursue soccer, because you sort of get to a point where you really have to commit if you want to go further with it. It was a really difficult decision for me because I love competitive sport. I miss it to this day.”

Kate is now able to share her love of the sport with her children, 14-year-old Ryder and six-year-old Bingham. However, when it comes to taking on her eldest, he still hasn’t managed to perfect the skills to beat his mum on the pitch.

“Playing with my kids it’s actually fun – it’s the one thing where I am the best!” she smiled. “My son Ryder’s getting there with me now, he can just about get around me, but he still hasn’t hit that level yet where he can beat me.”

Kate Hudson lands La Mer campaign

Ageless beauty Kate Hudson has become the new spokesmodel for top skincare brand La Mer.

The Almost Famous star was first introduced to the top quality brand as a kid when her mother, Hollywood veteran Goldie Hawn, gifted her a jar of the company’s famed Creme de la Mer moisturiser one Christmas – and she’s been “hooked” ever since.

“(It was) the first quality skincare product I ever used,” Kate recalls to People.com.

Now, more than two decades on, the 38-year-old has been tapped to promote the company’s new global digital campaign, Ways to Love La Mer, and Kate has found a new product from the La Mer line-up to add to her daily beauty routine.

Gushing about the Moisturizing Cool Gel Cream, she says, “It has a light, cool consistency that soothes and calms my skin immediately.”

However, Kate insists taking care of her skin from the inside is equally as important as what she uses on the outside to maintain her youthful glow.

“First, and foremost, I like to stay hydrated. Drinking water is always on my mind,” she shares. “I also believe in taking supplements for skin health. Fish oil is one supplement that’s not only good for your skin but great for your heart.”

And when it comes to cleansing, the mother-of-two swears by only washing her face once a day, just before bed, to avoid stripping her skin of its “natural moisture” – and she doesn’t use tap water.

“I love oil cleansers that you use on dry skin and pat off, like La Mer’s The Cleansing Oil,” Kate explains. “Then, I finish off with a toner or micellar water (formula comprised of cleansing oil molecules) that gives me that extra clean, hydrated feeling.

“If cleansing in the morning, I use La Mer’s The Moisturizing Cool Gel Cream, usually followed by an antioxidant serum, and I always finish with sunscreen.”

A good skincare routine isn’t the only secret to Kate’s enviable appearance – she is also a fitness fanatic, and boasts her own brand of activewear, Fabletics.
