Kate Hudsonrenowned for her sparkling wit and memorable roles in romantic comedies like 'How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days' and 'Fool's Gold', recently shared a hilarious anecdote about a high-profile wardrobe mishap she inadvertently caused for her mother, Goldie Hawn.

The actress dished the details to Flaunt Magazine, fondly recalling how she helped her mother find an outfit for the prestigious Vanity Fair Oscar party when she was a teenager.

"I was maybe 17 or 18. I gave her one of my dresses, this really pretty simple black halter gown, it was BCBG or something. And she was like, ‘Oh, great I’ll just wear that.'” the 44-year-old shared, chuckling at the memory.

However, the seemingly innocent decision led to an unexpected fashion crisis for her mom. The mom-of-three revealed: “Then she wore it and had a wardrobe malfunction... I remember her calling me later on my flip phone, and she was like, ‘Oh my God, the dress did this...[laughs]."

The comedy doesn't end there. Kate also found herself facing a similar wardrobe conundrum at the 2005 Golden Globe Awards.

Kate told People magazine: "I spent the Golden Globes not being able to sit. I was sideways. He just thought it was so funny. And God rest his soul, but I was sideways the whole time. And then if I sat too much, the whole dress would have split."

Reflecting on Goldie's illustrious career and iconic roles in 'Overboard', 'First Wives Club', and 'Cactus Flower' – for which she won an Oscar – Goldie recognized her mother's tenacity.
