Kate Hudson in velvet ensemble at Fast Company Festival

Kate Hudson was certainly dressed for autumn in New York with a comfy crushed velvet ensemble to speak at the third annual Fast Company Innovation Festival on Thursday.

The 38-year-old Oscar nominee flaunted a hint of cleavage in a beige top beneath a red velvet drawstring blazer, black velvet pants, and peep-toe Louboutins selected by stylist Sophie Lopez.

The buzzcut brunette – who plans on ‘bringing back the mullet’ – shaved her head in July for a mysterious role in the 2018 musical Sister, which is the directorial debut of Grammy-nominated hitmaker Sia Furler.

Kate discussed her $250M athlesiure line Fabletics – which she co-founded with Adam Goldenberg and Don Ressler in 2013 – for a panel called ‘Listen To Your Customers: Lessons From Fabletics.’

‘Optimism is the driving force for everything moving forward,’ Hudson said of the conference’s Leading with Optimism theme for 2017.

‘And gratitude is the one thing that allows for more optimism.’

The Deepwater Horizon actress was joined at Manhattan’s 92nd Street Y by Walmart eCommerce CEO Marc Lore and moderator, Fast Company editor Robert Safian.

Also heading up a FCIF panel was Honest Company CEO Jessica Alba, whom the nepotistically-privileged daughter of Goldie Hawn talks business with frequently.

‘Our businesses have grown very quickly and very fast,’ Kate told Vanity Fair last Friday.

‘It was a learning curve for both of us. Sometimes it’s sharing experiences, like, “Did you ever think we’d be in this position?” She had an idea and it came to fruition and grew so fast – and same with me. We do talk about the learning curve and how fast we had to rise to that challenge.’

When it comes to Internet trolls, Hudson revealed she reads ‘almost all of the comments’ since she controls her 8.2M social media following.

‘When someone tells me that I’m ugly with short hair, I laugh,’ the LA native admitted.

‘For me, it’s not as much about me feeling hurt as much as I feel hurt for them. It makes me sad that we live in such a reactive time. And people just feel that they can just say things that are so mean.’

The divorced mother-of-two used to be a prolific Snapchatter, but she recently cut back after her phone ran out of ‘battery to call my kids’ a few times.
