Kate Hudson discovered that having designer Stella Mccartney as a pal is invaluable when it comes to last-minute fashion disasters.

The actress needed a little extra help when she realised her designer dress was too see-through for her liking when she attended the Costume Institute's GODDESS gala in New York on Monday night (28APR03).

But fortunately, Stella was on hand - as her date for the night - to help her out.

The actress explains, "There was a little too much nipple showing. Stella was great - she just whipped in a little lining on the way."
