Last year, I shared images from Kate Hudson‘s campaigns as a spokesmodel for Ann Taylor, once in July & another time in March. It seems that the success of her face for the brand has led to yet another opportunity to sport the latest spring duds, as well as inspire the Oscar-nominated actress to collaborate in designing the first ever celebrity capsule collection for Ann Taylor, which will hit stores this summer. Kate tells InStyle, “Working with Ann Taylor has been a great creative experience and there is a really wonderful connection… Putting these outfits together has been incredibly fun—they have such youthful energy and flair!“
While the spring looks are all things feminine, crisp, & sophisticated, I’m excited that the new collaboration will be inspired by Kate’s very fabulous red carpet style, but reinterpreted for everyday occasions. Kate has even lent her opinion on the website with Kate’s picks, including a gown ($550.00), striped blazer ($98.00), blouse ($88.00), yellow jeans ($88.00), & a bangle ($34.99).
