Kate Hudson at the Pinnacle of People's Beautiful

Kate Hudson at the Pinnacle of People's Beautiful

Kate Hudson is cover girl of the People magazine’s issue containing its latest “Most Beautiful” list.

Editors chose Kate from among the 100 celebrities who made the list. Senior Editor Galina Espinoza says Kate “just embodies such an incredible natural beauty that is in vogue right now. We’ve gotten so accustomed to celebrities getting breast implants and nose jobs, and she will talk about being flat-chested and having a little bit of an offbeat look.”

“I was a tomboy,” Kate tells People. “I had three brothers. I was the girl with the dress on that always came back in the house filthy with scrapes and bruises. But I was always very girly. I had to be able to twirl so that my underwear showed.”

Other celebs such as Salma Hayek, Carrie Underwood, Vanessa Hudgens, Rumer Willis, Jason Taylor, and the cast of the Gossip Girls populate the list.

    i think she’s great role model and it just shows that you don’t have to look like every celebrity with a big chest just to be successful

  • zoe

    woah. kate looks quite airbrushed- doesnt look like her. im not exactly sure if she dserves to be on the front cover either.

  • bejeebus

    wow, i guess my taste in beauty just doesn’t jive with hollywood’s. that’s fine though since i judge these people for what they actually look like and not how much money they bring in or will bring in. i feel so pure and innocent!

  • summer

    I’ve always thought that Kate is beautiful, just goes to show that big-chested isn’t always beautiful.

    But omg can’t believe Vanessa Hudgens, who always looks like she needs a good shower, and Rumor Willis made the list! There are way more beautiful ppl in Hollywood than them.

  • bejeebus

    joss, i can appreciate what you are saying about her representing the itty titty committee as i proudly am a life long member…but as far as being a role model??? remember she’s a total pot head who cheated on her husband whom she had a child with…..i’m just saying….

  • kat

    yay for Vanessa, i think she’s beautiful! =)

  • jo


  • lovethekid
    my favorite hollywood female
    she is the most beautiful woman in hollywood
    because she is so natural

    and it’s totally superficial of me
    but i wish she had a tad bit more boobs.
    but i know it’s not gonna happen
    …so over it.

  • opinion

    Kate Hudson is not beautiful. Cute, regular, girl-next door.

  • dee

    kate is pretty.. and yes to Natural Beauty!!!

  • ***


  • DelanyDecolleur

    I think most of the people are pretty, but I do see beautiful girls everywhere. People want to read about celebrities…Megan Fox is really gorgeous, Salma Hayek, is beautiful, Kate Hudsen–twirling so my underware showed–my kinda girl, lol.

  • ra

    The presence of Rumer Willis on People’s list just proves they don’t know what the hell they are talking about.

    I wonder how much Rumer’s people paid to get her on the list?

  • macy

    I think she so pretty.

  • ko

    it’s great that they put someone like her. she is gorgeous, naturally. it’s true, i bet if they actually put people in there that were not enhanced in any way half of those in the list would be out! so.. yes indeed to Natural beauty!

  • ko


  • piper, with a low

    Drew Barrymore was last year’s cover, so why is it a big deal that Kate Hudson made the cut?

    Both are pretty, but Kate is prettier.

  • f.

    I agree that the presence of Rumer Willis really puts a red flag up on this one. No offense to her but she is the oddest combination of her parents looks and sadly not in a great way. I must say that one is a shocker.

    Kate is beautiful and absolutely belongs on the list.

  • piper, with a low

    Can’t stand the majority of Hudson’s movies, except Almost Famous, but the woman is pretty.

  • Minxx

    I agree ra! The list is a joke. Mommy must have blackmailed them to get Rumer in there.

  • Peppo

    RUMER WILLIS? What a joke….this list has just lost all its credibility in an instant.

    Kate Hudson? Cute but not gorgeous, not exactly my type but ok fine, I could see how some folks might love her….but Rumer FĂșckin Willis?She’s ugly as sin, any way you slice it.

  • Eva_baby

    Dang. I cam here to post about Rumer Willis being a ‘One of these things is not like the other” in regards the Most Beautiful list and so many beat me to it.

    While she doesn’t send young children running into the night, she ain’t that pretty either.

  • Nina

    Kate Hudson is very pretty, very charismatic-she has that “It” factor.

    As for Rumer Willis, WTTTTTTTTFFF. I ‘m sure her family pard $$$ for her to get in, is People magazine effing crazy? BEAUTIFUL? First off what has she done career wise? Just be the daughter of 2 actors? She’s a gross potato head fame whore with gross moles on her face.

    I mean, there are other beautiful celebrity kids like Jack Nicholson’s daughter for example.

  • piper, with a low

    Vanessa Hudgens deserves to make the list more than Rumer Willis. Vanessa is pretty, right now; Rumer may get prettier after she has her final growth spurt.

    Maybe it’s a make up for her not being Miss Golden Globes this year.

  • jughed


    Love Kate! Pretty, down to earth, and a rockin’ bod to boot! :D

  • A. Nonny Mouse

    With Sarah Larson on the list – I’d pay them not to put me on it. She’s only there because of cLooney tunes and what he keeps her around for you can’t print a picture of in People

  • ky


  • wicked wench

    CELEBRITIES PAY to be on that list. That’s why folks like Vanessa Hudgens can make it.

    On the other hand, AT LEAST they got the Gossip Girl cast correct. Chase and Ed and Penn – OH MY!

  • katefan

    I love Kate Hudson, and I am happy she is with Owen. I hope they realize how lucky they are to have found each other.

  • piper, with a low

    Sarah Larson is on the list?

    Please tell me you’re kidding.

  • Kourtney

    well the h.e.l.l. is rumer ugly as f.u.c.k. potato head willis doing on this list!? seriosly, people magazine just lost any credibility that magazine ever had. my dogs a.s.s. is better looking then rumer willis fugly face.

    everyone else DESERVES to be on it because theyre all ACTUALLY DECENT LOOKNG

  • da truth

    Kate is a cutie.

    Rumer is a nugly. Bruce and Ashton paid for her to be on there. They are really pushing her on the public.

  • suzy

    Vanessa is stunning.

  • BabyVSupporter

    Vanessa truly deserves it. And when she will get older she will become even more beautiful

  • A. Nonny Mouse

    #32 pipe,r with a low@ 04/30/2008 at 12:32 pm

    No I’m not kidding- Sarah Larson is on the list as the “newbie”
    George and Stan are doing well for her- I wonder why

  • Tealeaf

    Most of Hollywood celebs are very overrated in the looks dept…

    After the beauties of Old Hollywood died..stars got plainer and uglier

  • maud
