Kate Hudson‘s hair always looks as effortless as it does perfect, but when InStyle caught up with the actress for our January issue, she revealed that her prep routine is actually the opposite. “I’m wearing every product on the shelf,” Hudson laughed. “Seriously, after an event it can take four washcloths to remove the ‘natural look.'” As for deciding between going for a curly or straight style: “It depends on the weather,” she said. “Unlike most women, I love the humidity. It helps enhance my natural curl.” For more Kate Hudson hair and beauty secrets, pick up the January issue of InStyle magazine, on newsstands now.

I love the dramatic versatility of this ivory piece and the way it can really make its mark from day to night. This one, a wool-angora mix, is a cozy winter wardrobe staple.” Other celebrities agree: Kate Hudson wore a gray and black cape coat by Louis Vuitton a few months ago, Sienna Miller recently stepped out with a red one draped around her shoulders and Kim Kardashian tried a cream cape with black trim by 3.1 Phillip Lim this fall.
