The year was 2003 and the cinematic world was riding high. High on what, you ask? From My Big Fat Greek Wedding to Love Actually to Something’s Gotta Give and so many more; it was the era of chart-topping and movie marathon-worthy romantic comedies. It would be an absolute disservice to leave out the iconic How To Lose a Guy in 10 days from this list. In fact, the stunning Kate Hudson dress from the climax alone awards the film the top spot.
Hollywood films, especially rom-coms, feature some eye-popping, jaw-dropping, and traffic-stopping outfits that are forever etched in your memories. There’s Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman, Jennifer Garner in 13 Going on 30, and the many, many exquisite outfits displayed in Devil Wears Prada and Clueless. Kate Hudson’s simple, yet elegant attire definitely deserves more than a mention. And that is exactly what Netflix and the audience bestow on it.
Netflix gushes over Kate Hudson’s dress from the 2003 flick with fans following suit
Recently, Netflix took to Twitter and took a little walk down memory lane to awe at the alluring dress that Kate Hudson donned in the 2003 romantic flick How to Lose a Guy in 10 days. The streaming giant just added the well-loved film to their catalog on October 4 and the tweet was the platform’s unique way to generate a buzz for the movie. Two stunning pictures of Hudson posing in the delicate and dignified outfit are a sight to behold.
That, accompanied with the caption “The chokehold this dress had on me in 2003…” is more than enough for the fans to come aboard the simp train. Twitteratis held nothing back and wholeheartedly expressed their adoration for the dress and the film.
LOVED the dress AND the necklace she wore with it.

Directed by Donald Petrie, the film also stars the ruggedly handsome Matthew McConaughey alongside the beautiful Kate Hudson. The film is adapted from a book of the same name written by Jeannie Long and Michele Alexander. The film follows Andie Anderson (Hudson) and Benjamin Barry (McConaughey) as they both go to extreme lengths to prove themselves at their respective jobs. While Barry tries to make Anderson fall hopelessly in love with him, she uses the classic “clingy girl” tropes to get him to dump her.
Well, if that description and the splendid Kate Hudson dress don’t get you to watch/rewatch the film, we don’t know what will. What do you think about the outfit and the film overall? Let us know in the comments. Also, goes without saying, but How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days is now streaming on Netflix.
