Nov. 13 (UPI) -- Kate Hudson would like you to know that her closet isn't stuffed with the bedazzled ball gowns and over-the-top bling that you see her wearing on the red carpet and on the cover of magazines. In the December issue of Harper's Bazaar, the 34-year-old actress claims she doesn't have the funds to buy those clothes.
"People think we own all these dresses but we borrow them!" Hudson told the mag. "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," she went on to say. "I wish I could but the truth is things are just so expensive. Before Isabel Marant was a million dollars and famous, I used to go to her store in Paris and go crazy, it was so affordable.”
While it's a little hard to imagine that the average American woman would have ever found Isabel Marant "affordable," the French designer is about to launch a budget line for H&M.
Hudson credited her famous mother, Goldie Hawn, with her semi-thrifty sensibilities.
"My mom wasn't a big shopper for us," she said. "I think they wanted to instill that in us even though we grew up in a really privileged and lucky lifestyle."
