At Tuesday night’s premiere of “Le Divorce” in Los Angeles, Kate Hudson and Naomi Watts scored the same fashion one-two punch on the red carpet as they did onscreen in Merchant-Ivory’s Parisian comedy of manners.
“I am trying not to buy maternity clothes,” said the four-months-pregnant Hudson, who donned a belly-hugging Missoni for the occasion. Known to add some of her on-screen costumes to her own wardrobe, Hudson kept all the sexy La Perla lingerie from the film.

“I will sneak it on every once in a while,” she said. Though her husband, Chris Robinson, doesn’t particularly care about lingerie, he added that he “doesn’t complain” about it either.
Meanwhile, Watts channeled her inner siren in a mauve corseted Gucci dress and scarlet satin heels but insisted that she was something of a fashion novice.
“I didn’t really know the whole thing about the Kelly bag,” she confessed, adding that both she and Hudson received the $16,000 red crocodile Hermès Kelly bags used in the film as a wrap present from director Ismail Merchant.
