Kate Hudson Wasn’t Wearing Her Engagement Ring at the Oscars — Why? (VIDEO)

We dubbed Kate Hudson one of our “best dressed” on the Oscars 2014 red carpet last night (March 2), and while her silver Atelier Versace gown (and cape!) was stunning, it was also her overall glow that made her stand out. But despite appearances, things might not be all shiny and happy for the 34-year-old actress these days, as there have been whispers Kate and her fiance Matt Bellamy may have called it quits — a rumor she did little to dispute at the awards show last night.

For one, Kate showed up solo for the Academy Awards pre-show. And even more telling? The Glee star wasn’t wearing her engagement ring! Though we admit, we didn’t notice the missing piece of jewelry at first, as the star stepped out in yet another stunning dress — this time a black embroidered number from Zuhair Murad — for an Oscars after-party.

This doesn’t mean things are officially done for Kate and her baby daddy. Actresses are asked to wear different jewelry for awards shows like these, and it may have just been that she preferred to wear a more dramatic sparkler for her walk down the red carpet. But we’re still a little suspicious.

Kate and Muse lead singer Matthew have been engaged since 2011, and they share a son, Bingham, 2. At this time, neither star has addressed the split rumors, but E! News insiders say that doesn’t spell doom.

"They are optimistic about the future and see that it will work out," the source tells them. "They don't think for a second that they won't get through this. They love one another very much and will do what it takes to make it work."

Here’s to hoping these two work things out!
