Kate Hudson’s boyfriend Danny Fujikawa chose the name for her new fashion venture.

The How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days actress is no stranger to the clothing industry, having launched activewear line Fabletics in partnership with JustFab in 2013 and worked with New York & Company as an ambassador for the clothing brand’s Soho Jeans collection.

In March, Kate also announced she was gearing up to unveil the Happy x Nature line, featuring organic and recycled fabrics, and in a new interview with The Telegraph, she credited her musician beau with dreaming up the name of the label.

‘He said, ‘That’s what people think you are, happy by nature,”‘ she recalled. “And I understand why people would associate me with that idea. The reality is that contentment is a discipline. Happiness is something that we cultivate. But I like the idea that nature can make us happy and can bring us joy. It works on lots of levels.”

The Happy x Nature collection is comprised of floral printed dresses, denim garments, boho-chic dresses, and T-shirts. Kate and the design team are endeavouring for the line to be as eco-aware as possible, right down to the fabric tags and biodegradable bags, as promoting sustainability is very important to the star.

“I love fashion and I always have, but the more you get involved in it, the more you see how irresponsible the industry has been with waste. We’ve spent so long thinking that ‘more’ means more luxurious, when we need to start thinking that simplicity is more beautiful. It’s time to start being more responsible,” the 40-year-old commented.

Elsewhere in the chat, Kate shared that she had named one item in the range – a strapless, tiered dress, after her mother – Hollywood icon Goldie Hawn.

Maddie Ziegler has been welcomed into the Fabletics family after co-designing a new line for Kate Hudson’s sporty brand.

Dropping on Friday, the Maddie X Fabletics collection features leggings and T-shirts, and the Dance Moms star happily models some of her designs in a campaign video, which she uploaded to her 13 million followers.

Decked out in pink leggings and a grey T-shirt tied up at the back, the 16-year-old shows off her moves in the promo clip.

She follows in the footsteps of Demi Lovato, Kelly Rowland and Kate’s mother Goldie Hawn in teaming up with the activewear label.

The official Fabletics account also shared the news, writing “#MaddieXFabletics available June 7 @maddieziegler,” next to a second video of the dancer.

Maddie rose to fame as a child on Lifetime’s reality show Dance Moms but became a global star after Australian singer Sia began working with her in 2014, casting her in a string of her music videos, including Chandelier, Elastic Heart and Big Girls Cry.

In recent years, the teenager has moved into acting, landing parts in The Book of Henry and animated flick Ballerina, as well as the upcoming West Side Story remake and Sia’s big screen directorial debut, Music, which also stars Kate.

In a previous chat with Cosmopolitan, Kate revealed how close she and Sia had become during filming.

“Working with Sia on a special project and knowing that no matter what, I will always have a lifelong friend in her,” she gushed.

Music, which also stars Leslie Odom Jr. and Hector Elizondo, is due out later this year.

Goldie Hawn was a fan of Kurt Russell’s Santa Claus beard.

The Hollywood heavyweight plays Chris Kringle in festive film The Christmas Chronicles, and instead of sticking fake fuzz on his face, Kurt opted to grow his very own white beard.

And luckily Goldie, his partner of 35 years, was happy for him to bring his new look home.

“It was full on and took about four months to grow,” he told Entertainment Tonight. “Goldie hated the look I had for The Hateful Eight – actually I hated it too – but she was much better with the big Santa beard.”

As well as sporting a long handlebar moustache for Quentin Tarantino’s 2015 western The Hateful Eight, Kurt has also grown his facial hair out for films like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Deepwater Horizon, and ’80 sci-fi flick The Thing.

But it was the look for The Hateful Eight that the 67-year-old found the hardest to deal with.

“The buffalo jacket and a big moustache were Quentin,” Kurt previously shared in an interview for Details magazine. “It’s a big look, a moustache wearing a man. I put a lot of stock in appearance.”

He also wore his hair long for the part of bounty hunter John Ruth, which had a direct impact on another film he shot around that time, Bone Tomahawk.

“For this guy here (Sheriff Hunt), I had to do a different version of him because I was getting ready for The Hateful Eight,” he said. “I would have changed my look significantly for this one. I would’ve had much shorter hair.”

New mum Kate Hudson files copyright lawsuit to protect leisurewear brand

Kate Hudson has hit bosses at FabCrate with a new lawsuit, insisting their name is too similar to her brand Fabletics.

The new mum founded the business in 2013 and offers a subscription service providing women’s sportswear, footwear and accessories, while selling direct through 22 Fabletics stores in the U.S.

Hudson believes FabCrate is confusing customers, not just because of its title but because a similar subscription service is offered by those running the brand. FabCrate, which debuted in 2017, distributes similar items in curated crates.

According to The Blast, executives at Fabletics claim they reached out to the heads of the lifestyle seller to try and resolve the issue but they were “unresponsive”.

In the lawsuit, it is also alleged that workers at FabCrate are not following proper procedure and law for operating their business and are therefore causing damage to the lifestyle industry. In the filing, the FabCrate creators have been asked to cease operation immediately and turn over their profits.

Though Hudson maintains the existence of FabCrate is damaging to her brand, Fabletics has had a highly profitable run since its launch. According to Forbes, the company is currently valued at $250 million (£190 million).

Hudson developed the brand along with entrepreneurs Adam Goldenberg and Don Ressler, who serves as Chief Executive Officer.

Earlier this month, the Almost Famous star teamed up with her mother, Goldie Hawn, for a clothing line released under the brand that served to raise funds for the Snatched star’s mental health charity, MindUP.

The collection was unveiled just before the 39 year old gave birth to daughter Rani Rose on 2 October (18).

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.
