Kate Hudson “Can’t Afford To Buy” Designer ClothesBy: Emily Greene - November 12, 2013
Who knew? Stars really are just like us!
Actress Kate Hudson is the cover girl for the December-January issue of Harper’s Bazaar and in the magazine she tells us she doesn’t own any of the designer duds we see her wear on the red carpet nor can she afford them.
Hudson said, “People think we own all these dresses. but we borrow them! I can’t afford to buy that stuff. There are certain things I splurge on, but it’s very rare, especially when you have two kids and school tuition. I’m not a big high-end fashion shopper. I wish I could but the truth is things are just so expensive. Before Isabel Marant was a million dollars and famous, I used to go to her store in Paris and go crazy, it was so affordable.”
The actress doesn’t go crazy when she goes shopping, something she learned from her mother, Goldie Hawn. and her longtime love, Kurt Russell, “My mom wasn’t a big shopper for us. I think they wanted to instill that in us even though we grew up in a really privileged and lucky lifestyle,” said Hudson.
That responsibility has Hudson uncomfortable with another purchase – buying her eldest son, Ryder a cell phone. Hudson said, “As for Ryder, all he wants is a cell phone. “I see his friends texting people, and I just can’t do it. The first device I got was a pager! I was 13, and it was hot pink.”
Also included in the article is how happy Hudson is in her adult life. “I’m loving becoming an adult,” said Hudson. She says Ann Taylor CEO Kay Krill has inspired her when it comes to balancing her work and personal life. “She’s a huge advocate for women – and for realizing we are capable of whatever we put our minds to,” said Hudson.
Starting her own clothing line is something Hudson is currently thinking about. “I really think that if I’m going to put my effort into something, I want to reach a larger amount of women, where they can afford the things I’m selling. Especially with the economy, it doesn’t make sense to me anymore,” said Hudson.
Hudson also discussed her work ethic, saying, “I do have the work ethic, of when you show up to something, you do it.”
One Hudson fan took to Twitter to post a few photos from Harper’s Bazaar to his Twitter.
