Photos of Kate Hudson Shopping in New Orleans

Kate Hudson Explores New Orleans Before the City's Big Game

Kate Hudson spent her day off shopping in New Orleans yesterday, digital camera in hand in case something photo-worthy came up. The city must be buzzing leading up to this weekend's Super Bowl — the first the NO Saints have ever competed in! She's in Louisiana filming Earthbound with costar Gael Garcia Bernal, which kept her from being at Sundance — though judging from the harsh reception The Killer Inside Me received at the festival, her absence might have been for the best. Kate has still managed to be an award season staple so far, leading the white trend on the red carpets. She may have one appearance left for this year's Oscars as Nine received four nominations this morning — check out the full list!
