Kate Hudson got a little nostalgic at Monday night’s British Fashion Awards, reminiscing about her 2001 Academy Awards appearance in a silver Stella McCartney dress that landed her on almost every Worst Dressed list on the planet.
“Stella dressed me for my first red carpet event in 2001 for the Academy Awards. It was my first and only nomination. I was 21-years-old and to have Stella McCartney dressing me – well I felt like the hippest, coolest girl in the world. Up until the last minute Stella was working away, hand-sewing the hem. I woke up the next morning in my bed post-awards and without a little statuette on my bedside. I turned on the television to find out I was on every Worst Dressed list possible. So I called Stella and we just laughed our arses off and she said to me, ‘Look babe, it was the hair wasn’t it?’
“To this day that now vintage dress hangs in my wardrobe, but I swear one day I’ll wear it again. But Stella, I promise I’ll do the hair differently.”
Hudson also wore McCartney last night. Take a look at the dress — as well as her 2001 ensemble — below.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
