She was born into the entertainment industry, but Kate Hudson has told Harper's Bazaar she can't afford to designer clothes
that are the staple of Hollywood glamor.
Hudson, the daughter of actress Goldie Hawn, told the magazine that her mother and her longtime partner Kurt Russell have always stressed the pragmatic side of life.
"People think we own all these dresses, but we borrow them," Hudson said of the dresses the public often see stars wear on the red carpet. "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."

Hudson told Harper's that she has been trying to pass along the practical side of stardom on to her children.
"My mom wasn’t a big shopper for us," Hudson told the magazine. "I think they wanted to instill that in us even though we grew up in a really privileged and lucky lifestyle. As for Ryder, all he wants is a cell phone. I see his friends texting people, and I just can’t do it."
Hudson appears in the December issue of Harper's Bazaar.
According to ABC News
, along with caring for her two children – Bing, 2, and Ryder 9 – Hudson is also preparing to marry singer Matthew Bellamy of the band Muse.
"I'm loving becoming an adult," Hudson told Harper's Bazaar, crediting Kay Krill, the CEO of Ann Taylor, as a "great influence" in work-life balance. "She’s a huge advocate for women — and for realizing we are capable of whatever we put our minds to."
Hudson told Harper's she is thinking more today about her personal brand and said she's an admirer of what she calls "authentic girls."
"I like people who are true to themselves: Rooney Mara, I always look forward to seeing; I like her style," Hudson told the magazine. "Carey Mulligan always wears interesting things, Kerry Washington …"
Hudson is slated to appear in three movies in 2014, "Born to be King," "Good People," and "Wish I was Here," according to IMDb.com
