It may not surprise you to discover that Kate Hudson‘s family Christmas cards are just slightly more glamorous than the ones you took in matching sweaters with your parents at Sears.

Unless we’re mistaken and you had racks of chic holiday clothing brought to you in London, where you and your fiancé were both working, and you had famous fashion photographer Mikael Jansson on hand to snap the perfect portrait. But on the off chance that wasn’t your experience, Hudson gave us an exclusive behind the scenes peek at her Ann Taylor holiday ads, which show her both at home and at play.

The actress shows off some super-sexy (and definitely daring) sheer designs while sipping cocktails at London’s Corinthia hotel with her fiancé Matt Bellamy’s band Muse’s tour manager and visual effects supervisor. Then later, she poses in a polished, embellished shift (below) to sneak in some holiday time with her young sons.

“This shoot was particularly fun. We were in London and wanted to get people together,” Hudson says in a statement. “I called some of our friends that work with my fiancé’s band. It was fun to be able to bring them into the fashion world. Luckily, I was able to have my family there too, so it made for a very enjoyable day!”
