Kate Hudson turned heads on the red carpet for the first-ever People Magazine Awards Thursday night, where she picked up the Role Model Award.

Kate Hudson’s People Magazine Awards Look

Hudson, 35, showed up at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles wearing an asymmetrical, Grecian-style Valentino dress with Brian Atwood shoes. The actress accessorized for the awards ceremony with a Lee Savage clutch and House Harlow 1960 jewels.

As for her hair for the event, Hudson went with what hairstylist David Babaii calls the “Classic Kate.” In order to get Hudson’s beachy waves, Babalii suggests, “Once hair is dry, mist ghd heat protectant spray all over. Grab 2 inch sections of hair, using the ghd Classic Curl Iron, wind the hair around the iron while keeping iron open. This technique creates a soft, bouncy wave. After all sections are complete, separate a few strands with fingers and gently tousle hair at roots with fingertips.”

GET THE LOOK: Print dress, Macy’s, $179.

Hudson gave a preview of her hairstyle with a pre-awards show selfie with her good friend Nicole Richie, who presented her with the Role Model Award later on in the night.
