Treating herself to a shopping spree, Kate Hudson hit up the shops in Paris, France with her son Ryder today (July 5).

The “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days” actress looked cool and casual in a blue button-up top with jeans and tan boots as she held her son’s hand and led him through the Haute Couture Fashion Week madness.

In a recent interview, Kate talked about her longtime obsession with makeup, beginning with dressing up her brother.

She explained, “My poor brother. He was kind enough to be my mannequin, and let me experiment on his face. I’d put blue eye shadow on him and we’d laugh.”

Kate added, “I remember my mom’s makeup artist, this wonderful, old-time sort of legend in the movie industry, Tom Case, who had one little box he’d carry with him. He’d pull out just four items, and make the most incredible face with those four things. He said, ‘You can go in there as much as you want, but you have to put everything back exactly where you found it.’”
