kateandstella.jpgVogue announced this morning that Hollywood actress Kate Hudson has joined the incredible star studded line-up for their first ever festival of fashion due to take place this Friday. Kate will appear alongside good friend and designer, Stella McCartney, and will no doubt have plenty of supportive things to say about the brand - Kate has sported a whole host of Stella pieces over the years, both on and off the red carpet.

The Vogue Festival, which was first made public in January, is set to be one of the biggest fashion gatherings in Britain outside of London Fashion Week, bringing together some of fashion's leading photographers, writers, designers and models for the two day event.

Vogue's editor, Alexandra Shulman is said to be tremendously excited about the festival, and we don't blame her! After taking a long look at what the event has to offer, my personal favourite sessions include talks by inspiration photographers David Bailey and Tim Walker, "How to customize - one sweatshirt four ways", which will be conducted by Mark Fast, Louise Gray, Dr Noki and Simone Rocha, and "Fashion Question Time", which features a panel made up of some of Britain's best talent including Christopher Kane and Mary Katrantzou.

You can take a look at the full programme of events over at the Vogue website - which sessions would you choose? Let us know in the comments below!
