Kate Hudson Rocks Alexandre Birman At The “Nine” Premiere
I’ve always been fond of Kate Hudon’s red carpet style. I remember gasping over the sparkling Atelier Versace dress she wore to the 2002 Golden Globe Awards: a long-sleeved gown with a plunging neckline that rivaled the one on the sheer green Versace dress J.Lo wore to the 2000 Grammy Awards. The next year, she impressed me again with the haute hippie strapless Valentino dress she wore to the Golden Globes. Granted, she’s had her fair share of fashion misses, but that’s because she loves fashion enough to take risks — and, well, that’s the price of any gamble. Needless to say, I was curious to see what she’d be wearing to the NYC and LA premieres of Nine, the film adaptation of the Tony-winning musical of the same name, which stars Hudson alongside Daniel-Day Lewis, Penelope Cruz, Marion Cotillard, and Nicole Kidman.
And, at the NYC premiere, Goldie’s little girl did not disappoint — showing off her stems in a long-sleeved, shimmering, beaded Chanel minidress, which she paired with a black-and-white diamond Chopard ring, Steven Russe earrings, and the black Alexandre Birman peeptoe pumps pictured above.
The exotic reptile heels feature a peep toe and a small platform with white snakeskin piping for a chic but understated look that manages to complement Hudson’s ensemble without overdoing it — after all, when you’re wearing such an intricate dress and one with such a dramatic twist (such as the long train), your shoes need to remain fairly simple or else you risk forcing a look that’s entirely too busy and distracting. These classic Alexandre Birman shoes are extremely versatile — not to mention the perfect black heels for any LBD.
Lucky Kate got her hands on these early, as they’re a part of Birman’s pre-fall 2010 collection. Don’t shoot the messenger, ladies — it’s just one of those perks that comes with celebrity status. But not to worry — I’ll keep you in the loop about these beauties, so you know when you, too, can get your hands on them and dress to the “nines.”
