Black Crowe Plans New Year's Eve Nuptials

Actress Kate Hudson played a rock star groupie in Almost Famous, but in real life, where she's a lot more, well, famous, she marries the rock stars. She was given a diamond ring by Black Crowes singer Chris Robinson in August, and the two will reportedly tie the knot on New Year's Eve in Aspen, Colo.

Though the star denied wedding plans through the fall, the New York Post reports that the marriage will take place at a ranch owned by Hudson's mother, Goldie Hawn, and Hawn's boyfriend, Kurt Russell.

Newlyweds Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones will reportedly be in attendance, as will Sally Field, Chevy Chase, and his wife, Jane.

The event will be preceded by a fashion show featuring sable and mink creations by Russian designer Helen Yarmak, the paper reports, with the furs being sold to raise money for impoverished women in East Timor.

The 21-year-old Hudson has been busy of late: In October, she joined the cast of war drama remake Four Feathers and began filming in North Africa, along with young actors Heath Ledger and Wes Bentley.

Perhaps more of the wedding planning fell to her fiancé. Robinson has had more free time than expected — the Black Crowes' tour with Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page was cut short in September because of Page's back problems. The cross-generational musical union had been a shot in the arm for both acts, as their live shows — captured on the well-received double album Live at the Greek — were sell-out hits with fans.
