This blog is dedicated to Stones goddesses Marianne Faithfull and Anita Pallenberg, whose beauty and strength I find limitlessly inspiring (and whose photos I've spent thousands of dollars collecting and hundreds of hours scanning, so please, read the disclaimer at the bottom of the page, and don't re-post them without credit). This means you, Pinterest, Tumblr, etc., people.

Something in the way she moves
Kate Hudson has always been one of my favorite women in Hollywood. Coming from that place of huge advantage and disadvantage -- having famous parents -- Kate completely broke free after her stunning performance in Cameron Crowe's 2000 masterpiece, Almost Famous (my favorite movie ever). Since then she's matured to a versatile actress who, despite several disappointing films, is still much in demand, and an A list star by anyone's standards. Her enthusiasm and youthful good looks light up the silver screen, and she posesses that combination of vulnerability and sex appeal that men and women both find irresistible. When she hooked up with Chris Robinson of the Black Crowes (one of my all time favorite bands), her rock n' roll chic look was perfected. And for a rock girl like myself, I always found their coupledom delightful, as if she truly was part Penny Lane. Her wholesome appearance next to Chris's long-haired, scruffy cool set them straight out of San Francisco in the late 60's, and was a dichotomy that I found compelling. They seemed truly in love. Unfortunately, their seven year relationship (marriage) dissolved in 2007, but there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of animosity, which no doubt makes it a bit easier for their son, Ryder (a gorgeous long haired hippie in training). I'm sure some of you love Kate just as much as I do. Pictures courtesy of who's dated who, Google images, Life.
