Kate Hudson’s Mermaid Beauty


It’s not just baby season in Hollywood. Yesterday we reported our fashion fav mom Victoria Beckham gave birth, and today its bohemian goddess, Kate Hudson. Congrats Kate, on your baby boy!

Kate’s soft mermaid- whimsical like style has been a fan favorite of RT for a while now. Let’s take a look at some of our favorite Kate Hudson style choices.


How to Wear it

La Garçonne – Karen Walker Aviator Jacket

La Garçonne.com

Soft, yet super structured, we only felt it necessary to highlight La Garconne’s aviator jacket in our How to Wear it section. The idea of the masculinity of military inspired clothing crossed with soft colors and sensual fabrics has become an ultimate fascination with us here at RagTrade. We’ve created 4 magnificently marvelous ways to sport this gorge jacket from our Polyvore account. 

Heres how it works:

4 Ways

This is our idea of a very stylish boy. Pairing this awesome jacket with a pair of jean shorts, and a fresh pair of kicks( yes, we are sometimes funky fresh), dresses the jacket down. The white tee  and aviator glasses adds to the menswear idea. Its  a super chic menswear set. To us, this is our idea of what men would dress like if women ruled the world. And yes we are being facetious.Untitled

We were so inspired by Stella McCartney’s Summer/Spring 2009 runway, that we decided to do our own Fleshy Fresh set. The thin, lightweight barely there tank ads a soft femme look to the oversized aviator jacket. Paring it with soft velvet like gladiators and a super mini stonewashed skirt, gives this jacket a slightly dresser feel.
This is our idea of hippie chic. Pairing the jacket with a floral high waisted skirt and brown shoulder bag is our attempt at duplicating a fancy treehugger. (oh.. that wasn’t meant to be derogatory in any way) Of course the change shirt, inspired by the motto of the Obama campaign adds a sense of awareness to social issues to this simple gray oversized jacket. Jimmy Choo, Coach… yes this is a glammed style maven that channeled flower power for her inspiration for this set.
Bridging together another post, we decided to do a sequined dress to add super glam and bling to this monochromatic set. Yes, we are going Michael in this set, with a sequined mini dress, and ankle boots.Dressed to impress, this set is a prime example of dressing up in your “mama’s closet”.

Fleshy Fresh



Flesh tones. sheer and sequins (oh my!) seemed to be the trends of McCartney’s show last year, that showcased this Summer’s collection


When asked to describe the look of her Spring/ Summer 2009 collection backstage at her show, Stella McCartney says  fresh and kind of energetic was the overall theme. Summer you can afford to be really sexy and I think the girls are sexy, she adds.



Soft whimsical fabrics tailored to the backdrop of sequins and iridescent fabrics appeared to be the theme of the runway show. Another trend we noticed was the amazing use of neutral colors against super form fitting spandex. Appearing to be fully nude, many of the garments were flesh toned and contoured the body of the model.
