Kate Hudson smiled big while promoting the launch of a new Almay makeup line at the NoMad Hotel in NYC today. We had the opportunity to catch up with Kate at the event where she shared some of her holiday plans. According to Kate, "We're very into the holidays in my family. You know, decorations can get a little over the top, doing cookies constantly and getting into the hot chocolate. Ryder loves the advent calendars, and I have this little log cabin advent calendar that opens and there are all these little animals. Bing is loving that. There is just something so cozy about a house at Christmas, because I put the wreaths up and we do ornaments and we make ornaments, but to see Bing this year - we have this lit up snowman outside, and he does this thing where he breathes in [makes huge gasp sound] - and he gets so excited. And I was like he is going to be so fun this Christmas. It's really cute. We're a close family, so anything that brings our family together and all of us in a room and that tradition for us…and we celebrate Hanukkah too, so it's a busy time of year."
Kate wore a pajama-inspired look for the appearance, which she followed up with another stop. Kate hosted a special screening of The Impossible with Naomi Watts and Alicia Silverstone. It's been a busy year for Kate, who recently celebrated her mom Goldie Hawn's birthday with sons Bingham and Ryder, and her brother Oliver. Now that 2012 is coming to a close, we want to know — do you think Kate deserves the title of sexiest woman of the year?
