Kate Hudson: hot in black

ELLE cover star steals the show in NYC

ELLE cover star Kate Hudson stole the show at last night’s Hot Pink Party in New York – in a very hot black dress.

The star was the very epitome of chic in the floor-length sheath at the New York party in support of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, which featured a performance by Elton John.

As winning as she looked, however, we can’t help but be surprised by her wardrobe choice.

Given that the theme of the party Viva Fiesta, surely it was the perfect excuse for her to show off one of the flamboyant ballroom dancing dresses she told ELLE she so loves?


‘I’ve learnt the cha cha and the tango,’ Kate revealed in our May issue.

‘I’m having dresses made. The colours and flounces are totally my guilty pleasure. The whole thing’s an excuse to go out on to the dancefloor looking almost naked. With sequins. It’s so sexy.’

Fellow attendee Liz Hurley stuck to the style brief to the letter in a backless, plunging gown with a smattering of pink sequins.
