It was a special night in France with the 20th annual amfAR gala taking place during the Cannes Film Festival today. The event raises money for AIDS research, and this year, it featured The Ultimate Gold Collection Fashion Show, as well as an auction. Guests were in for a special treat since a trip to space with Leonardo DiCaprio was up for bid! Before the fun began inside, though, stars hit the red carpet in their finest. Model Alessandra Ambrosio worked the cameras in a metallic gown while Goldie Hawn brought a pop of color in yellow and Rosario Dawson kept it neutral in black. Milla Jovovich, Jessica Chastain, in a red Saint Laurent look, Sharon Stone, Janet Jackson, Kylie Minogue, and Ellie Goulding also made appearances.
Often, women look to their mothers to see how they will age, and if Goldie Hawn is any indication, Kate Hudson has nothing to worry about. Both stars work hard for their glowing complexions, but they each have differing approaches when it comes to skin care. Kate, a global brand ambassador for Almay, keeps it simple, while her mother loves to experiment.

Kate Hudson had a relaxing afternoon around LA on Saturday that started with a visit to a nail salon. Later, she and her fiancé, Matthew Bellamy, shared an evening out at Pink Taco and smiled as they departed the restaurant. While Kate and Matt enjoyed time together in LA, it was a similar story across the coast for her mom, Goldie Hawn, who spent Sunday on a sweet stroll with Kurt Russell in NYC. During their day out, the couple shared a proud moment when Goldie stopped to snap a picture of Kurt posing in front of one of Kate's Anne Taylor window displays in the Big Apple. Kate is currently the face of the brand and recently announced she will take a more hands-on approach by collaborating on a Summer capsule collection alongside the brand's creative director, Lisa Axelson.
Kate and Matthew have been hanging on the West Coast together lately, and just last week, they held hands while running errands around town. Matt's in the middle of his US tour with Muse and the band's next stop takes them to Oakland tonight and Sacramento tomorrow. The Muse frontman shared a sweet moment at a show last week when he declared his love for Kate in front of the sold-out crowd at the Staples Center.
Kate Hudson carried her son Bingham Bellamy to Cafe Vida in Los Angeles's Pacific Palisades neighborhood for her mom Goldie Hawn's birthday lunch last week. Kate's older son, Ryder Robinson, also attended the bash for his grandma Goldie, as did Kate's brother, Oliver Hudson, his wife Erinn, and their children.
Kate and her boys are back in the states after a stint overseas, keeping her fiancé Matthew Bellamy company while he was on the road with his band Muse. Matthew has been tied up in Europe, touring with Muse to promote their latest album, The 2nd Law. Despite his busy schedule, he and Kate had plenty of adults-only evenings out, including a visit to London's Groucho Club and a dinner date in Paris. The last week has seen Matthew and Muse in Poland and the Czech Republic. Next up are stops in Norway, Sweden, and Finland.

Saturday was filled with family fun for Kate Hudson and her son Ryder. They met up with Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell in Santa Monica, where they rode bikes near the beach and enjoyed the sunny LA weather. Kate's fiancé Matthew Bellamy didn't join them for the afternoon outing, but he did spend time with Kate and Goldie last week. The trio was together in London to celebrate the launch of Goldie's Hawn Foundation, which develops programs for children. Goldie kept the party going into the early morning, when she was seen being helped into the back of a car. Kate fit in a couple's walk with Matt on Friday before heading back to the West Coast with her mom.
Goldie Hawn had the love and support of her family tonight, including daughter Kate Hudson and soon-to-be son-in-law Matthew Bellamy, at the London launch of her namesake Hawn Foundation. Kate and Matthew are back in the UK following a glamorous appearance at this year's Vanity Fair Oscar bash. Kate caught up with pals Gwyneth Paltrow and Cameron Diaz when she wasn't snuggled up to Matthew in the dimly lit corners of the dance floor. During their stay in North America, Kate and Matthew also visited Mexico for a few days, where she worked on her tan in a sexy bikini.
The pair have been splitting their time between the West Coast and the UK, but for now they're back in Matthew's hometown while Muse continues recording their sixth album. They've been tweeting updates and sharing photos from their latest studio sessions.
Kate Hudson and Matthew Bellamy joined her family, including mom Goldie Hawn, for lunch out in Aspen on Saturday. Later, the couple stopped by James Perse. Goldie and Kurt Russell gather their family in Colorado every year for Christmas, and this time Kate and Matt arrived just in time for the festivities. Kurt and Goldie arrived in the Winter wonderland earlier this week and have been spotted shopping around town and enjoying the familiar scene. This is Matthew's second year joining in on the annual Aspen tradition, and in 2010 he made a splash in a bright orange ski suit to hit the slopes. Kate and Matt's Baby Bingham didn't come along for the outing yesterday, though Kate's brother Oliver and his wife Erinn Bartlett did round out the crew.
Move over Kate Hudson, because your mom is about to step back into the spotlight. Goldie Hawn is set to star in The Viagra Diaries, a new half-hour comedy for HBO. Sex and the City mastermind Darren Star is writing the script, which is based on the book by Barbara Rose Brooker. Hawn will star as a 65-year-old woman plummeted into singledom when her husband ups and leaves her. Believe it or not, this is Hawn's first role since The Banger Sisters (2002), but she seems like a perfect fit for this part (and as a devoted fan of movies like Overboard and The First Wives' Club, I'm welcoming her back with open arms). Are you excited to see Goldie back in action?
