Kate Hudson “Can’t Afford” Designer Clothes

Kate Hudson on Harper's BazaarKate Hudson claims she "can't afford" designer clothes.

The Bride Wars actress - who has nine-year-old son Ryder with ex-husband Chris Robinson, and two-year-old son Bingham with fiance Matt Bellamy - insists she has to borrow the high-end gowns she wears for the red carpet because they are too pricey for her budget.

"People think we own all these dresses. But we borrow them! I can't afford to buy that stuff. There are certain things I splurge on, but it's very rare, especially when you have two kids and school tuition. I'm not a big high-end fashion shopper. I wish I could but the truth is things are just so expensive. Before Isabel Marant was a million dollars and famous, I used to go to her store in Paris and go crazy, it was so affordable," she told Harper's Bazaar.

The 34-year-old beauty - who is worth a reported $38 million - credits her mother, Goldie Hawn, with her frugal ways: "My mom wasn't a big shopper for us. I think they wanted to instill that in us even though we grew up in a really privileged and lucky lifestyle."

Gemma Ward on Harper's Bazaar

After her three-year modeling hiatus, Gemma Ward has returned and graced Harper's Bazaar with her supermodel presence.

Shot by Peter Ash Lee, who photographed her first editorial ending her hiatus in the Australian newspaper Herald Sun, Ward has -- much to her fashion-minded fans' disappointment -- landed the cover to promote her current turn in the stage play The Ugly One.

Admittedly, this is quite obvious, given the simple styling and not-so-model-y pose. What do you think of Ward's latest career moves?

Hedi Slimane Shoots Georgia May Jagger for Harper’s Bazaar

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Celebrities, Models, News

It looks like Harper's Bazaar is on a role with their editorials! First was Christina Hendricks, and now Georgia May Jagger graces the fashion magazine's pages this month looking gorgeous and ever-so graceful. Fashion designer and photographer Hedi Slimane shot the rockstar spawn (catch a video and the rest of the photos after the jump) in Giorgio Armani, Michael Kors, Gucci, Lanvin, and Chanel Haute Couture.

When asked about what her model mother Jerry Hall thinks of her topless shoots, she seems to not care, considering she's been there and done that decades ago:  "My mum did a lot of very provocative work with Helmut Newton. She understands."

Whether it's the result of her mother's genes or her own inherent talent, Georgia May looks flawless in the photos.

Items Du Jour: Lady Gaga to Star in Film, Rachel Zoe Dies, Wang Hires Kravitz

Kate Moss on the cover of i-D—Despite the behind-the-scenes drama supermodels Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell made about sharing an i-D cover with Lady Gaga, the magazine ended up with all three divas on separate covers.

—Lady Gaga is reportedly set to star in her own autobiographical film, directed by Bryan Singer. Don’t act like you didn’t see that one coming.

—Steven Meisel looked to the Gulf oil spill for inspiration: his Italian Vogue editorial stars Kristen McMenamy, styled by Karl Templer. The fashion industry doesn’t always have to be vacuous…

—Once again, it pays to be a celebrity’s kid: Zoe Kravitz nabbed a gig modeling for Alexander Wang’s T line. Co-starring Max Motta, the ads are expected to hit New York streets as early as this Thursday.

Harper’s Bazaar makes Rachel Zoe as a fashion victim—literally. The celebrity stylist and reality star strikes several different poses in scenes where designers Marc Jacobs, Vera Wang, and Michael Kors appear to murder her!

Kim Kardashian Bares All For Bazaar

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Celebrities, Health & Beauty, News

 

Harper's Bazaar is now resorting to naked celebrities to sell its pages. Reality star bares all for the fashion magazine, which claims that the published photos have not been edited. "The message is embrace your curves and who you are..." says Kardashian of her public nudity. Judging by how gorgeous she and Britney look without Photoshop, I'm starting to think that these type of ads aren't making the general public feel better about themselves. Kim wasn't the only celebrity baring it all for the camera.

Elizabeth Hurley Admits Maintaining Beauty is Hard

Elizabeth Hurley opens up to Harper's BazaarFormer model and actress Elizabeth Hurley admits it’s harder to look good as you get older.

The 44-year-old, who hosted Harper’s Bazaar‘s “Fabulous At Every Age” party in New York last Thursday, says it’s important for women over a certain age to spend more time on their appearance as they need to make more effort to look stunning.

“When you’re older, you have to have your hair cut regularly, you have to pluck your eyebrows regularly, you have to stay slim, and you have to exercise more. So if you don’t give up, you stand out more.”

The Estée Lauder beauty also denied she had undergone plastic surgery to maintain her looks: “Don’t be ridiculous, I look so much more than that and, no, no surgery, not yet. I really don’t have a beauty regime. The only thing I do - obviously - is pluck my eyebrows because I would look like Denis Healey if I didn’t. There is a huge change in your metabolism after 40, and for the first time ever I am having to watch what I eat because I’m quite greedy by nature.”

Tim Burton's take on high fashion

When Halloween is near, why not turn to macabre director Tim Burton to envision a high fashion photo shoot for your magazine?

Well, the folks over at Harper’s Bazaar figured it would be a good idea, especially in light of the filmmaker’s career retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art. Shot by photographer Tim Walker, the eerie shoot recalls images of Burton’s classic characters we’ve come to love over the years—fashion magazine style, that is.

If you look closely enough (more pictures after the jump), you’ll catch the director himself taking a crack at modeling.
