The Deepwater Horizon star showed off her fantastic figure, popping out her sexy toned leg in the frock, which was adorned with flowers on one side.

Kate paired her number with pointy beige heels, matching the floral design on her dress, studded earrings and multiple rings. 

Sharing on her Instagram earlier in the day, the mom-of-two had her hair styled by David Babaii; a straight and sleek cut that was parted in the middle and fell behind her ears.

She went with a smokey eye look and a nude lip for her make-up.

Kate Hudson looked sensational on the red carpet at the 20th annual Hollywood Film Awards in LA this weekend, wearing a Marchesa maxi dress teamed with nude pointed heels.

Marchesa is a red carpet favourite whose designs have been spotted on Kim Kardashian, Emily Ratajkowski and Kendall Jenner to name a few. The brand's known for intricate beading, embellishments and attention to detail.

Kate’s dress carries all these trademarks with its beaded and sequinned floral applique cascading down the bodice; meanwhile the plunging neckline and thigh-high split make for a super sexy look.
