When actress Kate Hudson arrives on any red carpet she knows how to get the fashion world's attention. It may be the fact that she's had some practice: the actress has been walking the red carpet with her A-list family since the ripe old age of nine.

Kate Garry Hudson was born on April 19, 1979 to Bill Hudson and actress Goldie Hawn. Her parents divorced eighteen months after Kate was born and Goldie started raising Kate and her brother, Oliver with long-time boyfriend actor Kurt Russell. Just like her mother, Kate was an effervescent young girl with a style all her own.

Hudson's breakthrough performance came in 2000 when she appeared in Cameron Crowe's "Almost Famous." From that moment on, she was a star. Kate's style has transformed from an easy-going girl in jeans and a white tee, to a sophisticated and edgy starlett. Kate is often seen walking down the red carpet in tight fitting backless gowns with her hair perfectly swept to one side. On a casual day, Kate's style is perfectly boho-chic. Her carefree attitude is reflected in her unique style.

Kate is now a mother of two and engaged to Matthew Bellamy, singer in the band Muse. The 34-year-old shows no signs of slowing down, and her style continues to transform.

Happy Birthday Kate!
