Kate Hudson at the 2008 BAFTA awards

Love It or Hate It? Kate Hudson's BAFTA Braid

Kate Hudson arrived at the 2008 BAFTA Awards in London wearing a stunning gold sequin gown. Her dress choice was apropos for her new movie, Fool's Gold, which is currently ranked #1 at the box office. (Go Matt and Kate!) Her makeup was soft and fairly natural—just like her simple single braid. What do you think of this red-carpet hairstyle?

Stuck in the middle on this one. Looks good from the front, grade school from the back.

That braid was to keep her hair from getting unruly. One needs to remember that Kate has naturally curly hair. I suspect her hair was braided to stop it from frizzing up. London is rainy and she was walking a red carpet in the elements. Had she tried to blow out her curls... they would have frizzed up like crazy.

In this case, a plain braid works well. It fits her personality and since the dress is busy a fancy hairdo would have been too much. Plus a braided bun would be too sci-fi with that dress.

I love it. Makes me wonder why we don't see more braids on the red carpet. And makes me wish I were better at braiding my hair.

A bun? How dull! You people who suggested that have got to be kidding! The braid is very original and keeping with Kate's fun personality. Anyone can wear a bun...Kate likes to be more of a trend-setter, and with all her recent promotional appearances she is wise to throw in a little variety. The braid is just adorable!

Omg davisdavis... I totally thought she was chanelling some Jane Seymour too! The dress and make-up look so elegant.. something about the braid (not the bangs.. those a nice) that just doesn't match up.

The braid makes her hair look two different textures. Her bangs are really smooth and poofy and the braid looks like straw. No good.

Eh, a plain braid like this just can't look fancy. I don't like it, and especially with the bangs like that it looks too elementary school.
