Kate Hudson has long been one of Hollywood’s most fashionable faces on the red carpet. I’ve always loved her style and I’ve written quite a bit about her red carpet gowns and accessories. The black Alexander McQueen dress she just wore at the Golden Globes was breathtaking, wasn’t it?
Because Kate has such sleek style she is working with Ann Taylor as ambassador of its spring and summer 2013 campaigns. According to Ann Taylor, Hudson’s role will be “as both a design influence and charitable ambassador” for the brand. So what exactly does that mean? For the summer collection, she will be developing a capsule fashion collection for the brand. In addition, she will join the Advisory Council for the company’s ANNpower Vital Voices Initiative, a program that supports the empowerment of young women.
Kate will be collaborating with Ann Taylor Creative Director Lisa Axelson on the summer capsule. Planned for May, the limited edition capsule is inspired by Hudson’s chic red carpet style, recreated and brought to life for everyday occasions.
Look for the spring 2013 ad campaign from Ann Taylor to features Goldie’s girl wearing in a mix of vibrant colors, modern florals and graphic prints. My spies tell me this collection is heavy on dresses as Hudson favors them for easy dressing. “I’m a dress girl through and through,” Ms. Hudson said.
The collection is due in stores in May, but the ads will start appearing in February to whet consumers’ appetite for movie star style.
