Kate Hudson collected the favorite leading lady trophy at the People’s Choice Awards – and then it was time for a celebratory meal. The actress headed to West Hollywood’s Sunset Tower Hotel for dinner with stylist Rachel Zoe and three male friends. The group ate in the sophisticated dining room, where they enjoyed their meal with a soundtrack of live piano and cello. And it was a starry night at the restaurant: Hudson stood up to give Sean Penn a hug as he headed to the patio, while Big Love’s Chloe Sevigny dined nearby with a girlfriend.
