Here we have Kate Hudson, looking like the epitome of California girl, with the gold hair, shimmering gold evening gown, and gold-toned/peachy makeup palette. With a mom named Goldie, what else could we expect out of her?

While nothing about this look is over the top, Kate's cascading locks and fresh-faced makeup create a warm, chic style. Are you a fan of this gilded beauty, or would you have preferred some bolder choices in this more adventurous setting?
