Kate Hudson has enlisted the help of her son Ryder Robinson and boyfriend Danny Fujikawa to launch her new menswear collection for Fabletics.

The 40-year-old revealed the news that her activewear brand is branching into menswear in a sweet Instagram post, alongside a snap of her being cuddled by Danny and her 16-year-old son, whom she shares with ex-husband Chris Robinson.

“Today it’s all about my boys,” Kate wrote. “Exciting news: @Fabletics MEN is here! Which means the guys in your life can now become VIPs too – but spots are LIMITED! The first 5,000 guys to sign up get early access…so tell all the men in your life!!”

The new line, which features T-shirts, vests, shorts, hoodies and joggers, as well as two-piece workout kits, is priced from $34.95 to $59.95 (£27 – £46). Items are now available to purchase online.

Kate launched her affordable activewear subscription service with Just Fab back in 2013, and has collaborated with Kelly Rowland, Maddie Ziegler, and her mother, Goldie Hawn.

Musician Danny shared his enthusiasm for the garments in a tongue-in-cheek video posted on Instagram too. The clip shows him unboxing the goodies in the style of an influencer.

“Hey guys, I’m really excited. I just got in the new collection,” the 33-year-old, who shares daughter Rani Rose with the Almost Famous star, began the clip. “I’m wearing this… this is a hoodie, the new hoodie. It’s so nice. It feels so good.”

“This is a shirt. It’s so nice,” he joked, as Kate can be heard laughing in the background.

Christie Brinkley champions body positivity with throwback bikini photo

Christie Brinkley has championed body positivity by posting an old bikini photo on social media.

Since launching her career in the early 1970s, the supermodel has become one of the most sought-after names in the fashion industry, famously spending 25 years as the face of CoverGirl and appearing on three consecutive covers of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.

In a new Instagram post, Christie reflected on her cover shoot for the June 1977 issue of Cosmopolitan magazine, in which she posed in a purple bikini.

“This bathing suit caused a stir! At the time all the bikinis were low slung on the hip. This high leg cut made the hip a new erogenous zone. I couldn’t figure out how to put it on as just one string holds it all together!” she captioned the snap. “I remember I was worried that I looked fat. I’m so glad that today our industry appreciates all shapes and sizes so we can just focus on being healthy. Not cookie cutter. Still there is something in some young girls that often makes them feel they just don’t measure up. I was one of them. I look back at these and think that worry was such a waste of time.”

Christie went on to explain that she wishes the lessons she has learned over the years could be easily passed on and “absorbed” by the younger generation. But she is still pleased to see fashion industry leaders making progress when it comes to inclusivity and diversity.

“I do think shifting the focus to feeling great is a giant step in the right direction. Just thinking out loud as I sift thru a few photos (sic),” the 65-year-old commented.

Accordingly, a number of Christie’s celebrity pals quickly praised her honesty, with model Paulina Porizkova writing, “Perfectly put,” and actress Kate Hudson adding: “Holy purple goddess!!!!! Everything about this!”

Kate Hudson was left unimpressed when she stepped on the scales after indulging over the holiday period.

The Almost Famous actress is one of the faces of diet plan WW USA, and frequently shares tips and recipes on social media. But in a post on Thursday, Kate admitted it was time to set some new fitness goals for 2020 after letting herself go over Christmas and New Year.

“It’s January second, 2020,” Kate said as she cradled a coffee mug in a video on her Instagram Stories. “I got on the scale – I wasn’t impressed. But that’s O.K. because I know how to do this.”

She then candidly shared a clip of herself on the scales, weighing in at 135.9 pounds (61 kilograms).

“So, post-holiday, I’m basically 136 (pounds)… I always round up,” the 40-year-old wrote over the scales snap. “Ideal weight for me (is) 125 pounds (56 kilograms). I’m gonna say 3-5 pounds is mostly water and I’m a muscular frame so I weigh more even though I’m lean. Important for people to understand that! Weight in muscle is a happy number!”

Kate then told her 11 million followers that she would be kickstarting her new eating and fitness regime as soon as possible.

“I’m gonna bring you along on this ride,” she insisted.

The mother-of-three shared an example of her daily diet plan too, explaining that she starts her day with black coffee and celery juice, both of which are zero points on the WW USA diet plan. For lunch, she had shrimp cooked with sherry vinegar and garlic, for zero points, and later exercised for 30 minutes.

Kate previously credited following the WW USA plan for helping her get back into shape following the birth of her daughter Rani Rose in October 2018.

Kate Hudson “took a bit longer” to lose the baby weight after welcoming her daughter Rani Rose.

The actress gave birth to the tot – her first child with boyfriend Danny Fujikawa – in October 2018.

In a new interview with People, Kate opened up about her life with three children and noted that she decided to adopt a different method when it was time to get back into shape.

“This one took a little bit longer. It was like 12 months, but I did it differently,” Kate, who is also mother to sons Ryder, 15, and eight-year-old Bingham, stated.

The Almost Famous star went on to explain that she chose to follow a plan by WW, formally known as Weight Watchers, in a bid to lose the weight. And the regime really worked for her.

“It was a smarter way to take (the) weight off, because it stays off,” the 40-year-old commented. “I think the wonderful thing about what that is, is you can eat what you want, you just have to be conscious. It teaches you about food.”

The WW ambassador took six months to lose weight after having her son Bing and added that her approach to food is now very similar to how her parents – Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell – raised her.

“I really understand food,” she shared. “I understand what I’m putting in my body, I grew up like that. My parents are who taught me about that. But there’s a lot of people out there who don’t have that relationship to food.”

Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn are reteaming as Santa and Mrs. Claus for a sequel to last year’s hit Netflix movie The Christmas Chronicles.

The Death Becomes Her actress took to Instagram on Friday to announce she and her longtime partner will be back as the Clauses in The Christmas Chronicles 2 at the end of next year.

“A year later and I’m still ringing Santa’s jingle bells,” the 74-year-old cheekily captioned a shot of the couple in their matching outfits posing in front of a snowy backdrop. “I couldn’t be happier to be working on @christmaschronicles again with Kurt Russell, my real life Santa @netflix 2020.”

Goldie appeared as Mrs. Claus in a surprise cameo at the end of the 2018 movie.

The Christmas Chronicles was a huge hit for the streaming service, and followed Kurt’s wisecracking Santa Claus as he took siblings Kate and Teddy Pierce, played by Darby Camp and Judah Lewis, on a whirlwind adventure to try and save the festive holiday.

Directed by Clay Kaytis, it also starred Goldie’s real-life son Oliver Hudson as well as Lamorne Morris and Kimberly Williams-Paisley.

And in next year’s new film, Santa Claus reteams with Kate, now a teenager, to battle a mythical troublemaker named Belsnickel, who will be played by Deadpool 2 star Julian Dennison.

Director Chris Columbus will helm the sequel, after serving as a producer on the original.

Goldie’s daughter Kate Hudson showed her support for the sequel on her mother’s Instagram post with a series of emojis, including a love heart.

Pink has unveiled a dramatic new shaved hairstyle.

The 40-year-old singer took to Instagram on Thursday to share a picture of herself showcasing her shorn head, while sitting down and holding her cut hair in her hands.

“Letting Go,” she captioned the image, before tagging Benjamin Salon hairdresser Pamela Neal in a post of her locks strewn over the salon floor on her Instagram Stories.

The What About Us singer was quickly inundated with messages of support from her famous friends, including Kate Hudson, who shaved her head for the upcoming musical Sister. “The most liberating!” she wrote.

Selma Blair, who decided to go for a shaved head amid her battle with multiple sclerosis, also commented, “Twins!!”, while Pink’s husband Carey Hart added: “Love it!!!!!!!!!”

The haircut comes almost three months after Pink’s daughter, Willow Sage, copied her superstar mother by shaving the side of her head.

Hart took to Instagram and shared a photo of the eight-year-old getting her hair cut and penned a heartfelt note about his firstborn.

“Loving my punk rock daughter,” the 44-year-old wrote. “Remember everyone, fly your own flag. There is no box to be put in. It’s better to be your own self. Own it, and love it. And if anyone has a problem with it, tell them (politely) to move on.

“Cant wait to see the woman you grow up to be. I have a feeling you are gonna be strong, fierce, companionate, and caring. I’m so proud of you, Willow.”

Kate Hudson’s post-baby weight loss journey was harder after third child

Kate Hudson’s post-baby weight loss journey was tougher with her third child in comparison to her other two.

The Almost Famous actress welcomed daughter Rani Rose with boyfriend Danny Fujikawa in October 2018, and the following month, she announced she wanted to lose 25 pounds before she filmed a movie in the spring.

Kate, an ambassador for WW, formerly known as Weight Watchers, kept her Instagram followers up to date about her weight loss journey and celebrated achieving her goal.

In a new cover interview with Women’s Health magazine, the star revealed that dropping the pregnancy weight was a longer, tougher process in comparison to her experience following the birth of her sons Ryder, 15, and Bingham, eight.

“Unlike with the other two, I didn’t really have time to work out… It took a different kind of discipline,” she confessed to the publication, admitting the aim to get fit while running her businesses and looking after her family didn’t go “as planned”.

Because Kate didn’t have as much time to hit the gym, the 40-year-old relied on stricter eating habits using the WW points system. And the commitment paid off, as she now feels “good, energetic, and strong”.

Goldie Hawn’s daughter now eats around five times a day and fits in workouts three to four times a week. She prefers to mix up her exercise regime to alternate between running on the treadmill, pole dancing, hot yoga, and Pilates.

However, Pilates is always her go-to class, as she explained: “I love how flexible I get and what it does to the shape of my body.”

Kate shows off her enviable abs and lean figure in a variety of athleisure outfits for the accompanying photoshoot.

Kate Hudson launches own vodka brand

Kate Hudson is looking to make a splash in the liquor industry with her own craft vodka brand.

The How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days star has created King St. Vodka, described as an “ultra-premium spirit” hand-crafted in Santa Barbara, California, after realising this particular corner of the market is one dominated by male entrepreneurs.

Hudson explained how the idea came about in a new Instagram post announcing her latest venture, writing, “After a particularly long day, I decided to host an impromptu cocktail party with my closest friends.

“As I prepared to whip up a batch of dirty vodka martinis I surveyed my bar, but I wasn’t 100 per cent happy with my options. Then I wondered, ‘Are any of these vodkas founded by women?’ I did some research, they weren’t. So, I decided to make my own just the way I like it! @KingStVodka #KingStVodka.”

In additional marketing materials, the actress revealed that the brand is named after the New York City street on which she once lived, “where many of my most precious memories were made”.

A release date has yet to be announced, but Hudson promises fans the seven-times distilled liquor, which is free of gluten and distilled with alkaline water, is “insanely delicious” and “best served with good company”.

“The creative side of me thought it would be a fun challenge to develop a vodka for my palate, and in a beautiful package that I would love to have on my bar and share with friends. The businessperson in me is now looking forward to the challenge of building a brand in an entirely new industry,” the 40-year-old added.

Hudson is the latest celebrity to unveil her own vodka brand – rap mogul Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs is behind the Ciroc label, actor Channing Tatum launched the Born and Bred line in 2017, and country star Blake Shelton owns Smithworks Vodka.

Kate Hudson hopes her clothing line Happy X Nature inspires other brands to embrace sustainability.

The actress will launch her new evening collection on Wednesday, with the line featuring dresses and jumpsuits made from recycled materials, and in an interview with WWD, Kate confessed that setting an ethical example in the fashion industry has been a challenge.

“I’m hoping that more people in affordable fashion will start to change the way they’re designing and producing clothes. We’re looking to change the way people look at affordable clothes,” the 40-year-old explained to the publication. “We’re producing responsibly. We’re focused on creating a great statement piece with every garment. We approach designing like any other high-end collection. It’s a real challenge and it’s not an easy thing to do. We’re constantly learning.”

Happy X Nature uses responsibly sourced cotton and a fibre formed out of recycled plastic bottles for garments, and ships customer orders in biodegradable bags that decompose within 12 to 18 months.

“I look at it as if I’m no expert, but I really like hanging with (consumers) and being their eyes and ears – the artistic piece of the puzzle. I’m really loving Happy X Nature. I’m excited about my mission and I absolutely love fashion. I think it’s just a blast,” she shared.

And the Almost Famous star is planning on expanding her businesses in an environmentally-friendly manner in the near future, as she takes a step back from Hollywood to focus on her family.

“I’ve never had an ambitious plan. I wanted to sing and dance and act, and I wanted to tell stories. I didn’t realise my storytelling would take me into fashion and other businesses… I’m looking forward to building different businesses that exist on their own and are about conscious consumerism,” the mother-of-three stated.

Michael Kors unveils American Dream-inspired spring 2020 collection

Michael Kors explored the idea of the American Dream in his spring/summer 2020 presentation.

The fashion designer showcased his latest collection as part of New York Fashion Week at the Brooklyn Navy Yard on Wednesday, with the event occurring on the anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks. Celebrities including Nicole Kidman, Kate Hudson, and Yalitza Aparicio were in attendance.

Although he didn’t mention 9/11 directly, Kors made a patriotic tribute to his homeland as he saluted classic American fashion while the Young People’s Chorus of New York City serenaded the crowd with songs including Don McLean’s American Pie and Woody Guthrie’s This Land is Your Land.

Speaking to reporters, the 60-year-old explained that the inspiration for the collection came from a trip he made with his husband Lance LePere to Ellis Island where he learned about his immigrant great-grandmother’s arrival to the U.S. at the age of 14.

“I walked out feeling incredibly patriotic because I thought about the fact that she built a business, raised a family and her dream was to cross the river to Brooklyn,” he told The Associated Press.

The collection channelled themes of American pride as well as love and peace, which was best exemplified with a jumper emblazoned with the word ‘Hate’ crossed out, clothing featuring cherry patterns, and shoes dotted with holly and ivy, like the topping on a pie.

Nautical chic had a big presence, as evident in sailor hats, boat shoes, and stripes, while jumpers, trousers and a swimsuit were covered in small anchor motifs. The colour palette was heavy on reds, whites, and blues.

Polka dots and gingham were also big news, as well as power dressing, with Bella Hadid wearing a blazer dress. The show concluded with models such as Adut Akech and Gigi Hadid sporting sparkly evening gowns.
