Why It Works: Kate Hudson's Casual Cowgirl in London Look

Fresh off last week’s US Weekly spread devoted to her traffic-stopping post-baby physique, everyone’s favorite Matthew McConaughey co-star made an appearance at London’s Duke of York’s Theatre to catch Zach Braff’s play All New People. And Braff wasn’t the only one delivering an acclaimed performance: Let us count the ways we adore K-Hud’s celebrity-girl-next-door appeal.

The Wrap: Clearly the most valuable player in Hudson’s ensemble, her neutral color-blocked cloak has a Juan Valdez meets Katharine Hepburn vibe. In three syllables: amazing. Hudson’s distressed jeans diffuse any would-be diva effect, so she can pull off an over-the-shoulder-sweep without fear of tarnishing her approachable rom-com rep.

The Boots: Look closer, these befringed and chain-adorned slouchy cowgirl boots are made for walking, and maybe a high fashion take on line dancing too. Sort of like that time she starred in that movie Sweet Home Alabama with good old, perpetually shirtless McConaughey. Okay, so it was actually Reese Witherspoon and Josh Lucas. Same diff.

The Makeup: Trick bulletpoint—there isn’t any! Or, if there is, it’s a whisper of blush here, maybe a sweep of highlighting there. The point is, the freshly scrubbed look—at night, no less—is endearingly down to earth, unbelievably confident, and totally working for her.
