Happy Birthday, Kate Hudson! The actress, who turns 35 today and is in the buzzy upcoming film Wish I Was Here, is ringing in another year stylishly with her new LBD collection for Ann Taylor. “I wanted the collection to be something for every woman,” Hudson tells InStyle.com exclusively. “Dresses that a woman would feel comfortable in, no matter what body shape or size.” Sleek designs aside, Hudson’s personal style is definitely more casual; the star often opts for a no-fuss wardrobe. “If I see a big, flowy dress that looks like you should be in a field somewhere with daisies in your hair–I’m just a sucker for it,” she tells us. Hippie chic? We’re sure Penny Lane would be proud.
