People magazine has spoken and they have named Kate Hudson and the cast of Gossip Girl some of the most beautiful celebrities of 2008. One strange motif that has been absent from previous years is the baby-craze among those in the list:
Single mom, self-professed tomboy and favorite stork-watch candidate Kate Hudson tops a list that includes bona fide bump bearers such as Jessica Alba, Nicole Kidman and Angelina Jolie; new moms ranging from Halle Berry and J.Lo to Nicole Richie and Christina Aguilera; fellow under-the-mommy-microscope star Ashlee Simpson; big-screen pregnant teen Ellen Page; expectant dad Matthew McConaughey…
All are sporting that special glow, according to the magazine’s latest roundup of the fairest in the land.
Which used to only feature 50 hotties back in the day but has since expanded—most likely on account of reality television and mythically pretty ensemble casting (there’s that sneaky trick of counting each castmember—it’s easy enough to dish up seven Gossip Girls [and boys], four residents of The Hills and three Desperate Housewives and call it a layout).
