When Kate Hudson hits a red carpet, there are a few things we can almost always expect from the actress: that she'll wear a glamorous designer gown and that she'll look insane in it. As evidenced by her arrival at last night's Breast Cancer Research Foundation's annual Hot Pink Party fundraiser, she didn't disappoint — only her jaw-dropping gown wasn't designer, it was an off-the-rack find from Ann Taylor. As the brand's ambassador, it makes sense that we'd see Hudson showing off the brand, though typically we think of Ann Taylor as a one-stop shop for office separates and pretty cocktail dresses, not eveningwear. Kate might just be changing the way we see the brand, first as the face of the label's new campaign and now with a glimpse of this sultry black gown (available from Ann Taylor's Events Collection in late October). She's not the first celebrity to take a mass label to a red carpet event (there's a long list of style setters like Olivia Palermo, Michelle Williams, and Emmy Rossum who have worn labels like H&M, Topshop, Zara, and J.Crew), but we want to know what you think of the look — is Kate's Ann Taylor gown a red carpet win? And, are you excited to see celebrities wearing more accessible brands at events?
