It was a special night in France with the 20th annual amfAR gala taking place during the Cannes Film Festival today. The event raises money for AIDS research, and this year, it featured The Ultimate Gold Collection Fashion Show, as well as an auction. Guests were in for a special treat since a trip to space with Leonardo DiCaprio was up for bid! Before the fun began inside, though, stars hit the red carpet in their finest. Model Alessandra Ambrosio worked the cameras in a metallic gown while Goldie Hawn brought a pop of color in yellow and Rosario Dawson kept it neutral in black. Milla Jovovich, Jessica Chastain, in a red Saint Laurent look, Sharon Stone, Janet Jackson, Kylie Minogue, and Ellie Goulding also made appearances.
Often, women look to their mothers to see how they will age, and if Goldie Hawn is any indication, Kate Hudson has nothing to worry about. Both stars work hard for their glowing complexions, but they each have differing approaches when it comes to skin care. Kate, a global brand ambassador for Almay, keeps it simple, while her mother loves to experiment.

Goldie Hawn had the love and support of her family tonight, including daughter Kate Hudson and soon-to-be son-in-law Matthew Bellamy, at the London launch of her namesake Hawn Foundation. Kate and Matthew are back in the UK following a glamorous appearance at this year's Vanity Fair Oscar bash. Kate caught up with pals Gwyneth Paltrow and Cameron Diaz when she wasn't snuggled up to Matthew in the dimly lit corners of the dance floor. During their stay in North America, Kate and Matthew also visited Mexico for a few days, where she worked on her tan in a sexy bikini.
The pair have been splitting their time between the West Coast and the UK, but for now they're back in Matthew's hometown while Muse continues recording their sixth album. They've been tweeting updates and sharing photos from their latest studio sessions.
Move over Kate Hudson, because your mom is about to step back into the spotlight. Goldie Hawn is set to star in The Viagra Diaries, a new half-hour comedy for HBO. Sex and the City mastermind Darren Star is writing the script, which is based on the book by Barbara Rose Brooker. Hawn will star as a 65-year-old woman plummeted into singledom when her husband ups and leaves her. Believe it or not, this is Hawn's first role since The Banger Sisters (2002), but she seems like a perfect fit for this part (and as a devoted fan of movies like Overboard and The First Wives' Club, I'm welcoming her back with open arms). Are you excited to see Goldie back in action?

Gwyneth Shares Her Great Shape Secrets During a Good Housekeeping Night With Meryl, Christy, and More
Gwyneth Paltrow got some of her best Big Apple girlfriends together last night for Good Housekeeping's Shine On Awards, which honored the achievements of powerful women. The actress was there to salute the work and raise awareness around maternal health done by Christy Turlington Burns, and they shared the evening with other ladies like Meryl Streep, Rebecca Romijn, and new mom Ali Larter. Gwyneth, who was on the cover of the magazine's February issue, has been busy with her return to Glee, which airs next week, and promoting her latest publication — she hosted a dinner for friends like Cameron Diaz, Jay-Z, and Mario Batali on Monday to toast her new cookbook My Father's Daughter. She was on hand yesterday to congratulate others, but Gwyneth took a minute to discuss the long hours she spends maintaining her awesome figure. Gwyneth said on the red carpet, "The reason that I can be 38 and have two kids and wear a bikini is because I work my [expletive] ass off. It's not an accident. It's not luck, it's not fairy dust, it's not good genes. It's killing myself for an hour and a half five days a week, but what I get out of it is relative to what I put into it. That's what I try to do in all areas of my life."
Kate Hudson arrived back in London this weekend following her trip to Paris with Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell. The pregnant star revealed that she thinks she's having a girl during her interview with Graham Norton last week, and denied engagement rumours. Kate also had a laugh with her fellow guests on the show, chatting about her childhood crush on Tom Cruise and sex scenes. The actress spoke about her British rocker Matt Bellamy, saying: "He's very polite and kind and so sweet. He's lovely". Kate is keeping her next project in the family, and is developing something with Goldie but couldn't give any plot details.
Kate Hudson arrived at the Gare du Nord today with Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell. The family headed to France after their stay in London with Matt Bellamy. Their romance has got us thinking about other Americans who've fallen for British rockers. Before leaving our shores, Kate appeared on The Graham Norton Show and responded to rumours she's engaged. She also chatted about her pregnancy, which Goldie is very excited about. Here are the highlights:
- On her bump: "I’m just starting to pop."
- On thinking about names: "We have a couple of names but we’re not telling anyone. People tell you so much, it drives me nuts."
- On knowing the gender: "It feels like a girl, but I don’t know. Ryder thinks it’s a girl."
- On her and Matthew's plans to wed: "No, no, not that I know of! I don’t like putting that sort of pressure on it and I don’t feel it necessary to get married. . . . I am 31 I already have one child and have had one divorce so it is not necessarily the golden ticket. I just want to be happy."
Kate Hudson's perfectly curled blonde hair stood out against the evening sky as she left dinner at Zuma restaurant in London last night. She was joined by her mom Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, who are enjoying a week of UK festivities that may have included an engagement party. Rumour has it that Kate's boyfriend Matt Bellamy recently popped the question, though most of you think they should slow down rather than rush to tie the knot in the wake of their surprising pregnancy announcement. If Kate has a new ring to go with her possible fiancé, she was keeping it hidden during yesterday's outing. Still, she's started to show off a hint of a baby bump as Fit shares tips and tricks from the trainer who keeps Kate in such great shape.
