Kate Hudson kept it sexy while playing mom -- In ''Raising Helen,'' the actress proves you don't have to give up looking fabulous for motherhood

Sure, Kate Hudson's Manhattanite turns doting mom in ''Raising Helen'' -- but she doesn't shelve her style. Though the actress wasn't visibly pregnant during Helen's spring 2003 shoot (son Ryder was born Jan. 7), Hudson had definite ideas on her maternal wear once Helen ditched her type A ensembles from Jil Sander and Gucci. ''We once thought [her ''mother'' outfits] would be full of little prints and flowers,'' says costume designer Gary Jones. But as Hudson has proved, a woman ''doesn't have to give up being fabulous to be a mother.''
