Ann Taylor has loved actress Kate Hudson’s previous campaigns so much, they have hired her as the face of their Fall 2012 Collection! This makes the 33-year-old the first celebrity spokesperson to grace the brand’s campaigns for three consecutive seasons.
“I am really excited to continue as the face of Ann Taylor for another season,” said Hudson. “My experience with the Ann Taylor family has been collaborative and fun and that means everything to me. Everybody truly believes in the brand and they are doing amazing things! The fall collection is incredible. I feel like I have been really lucky to be a part of it – it’s a really nice, wonderful family that I’m proud to represent.”
So let’s talk about the looks we can expect to see starting in mid-August in Ann Taylor stores nationwide and on www.anntaylor.com:
One of my favorite things about shopping at Ann Taylor is that I can find age appropriate pieces that are affordable and work from day-to-night. These pieces modelled by Hudson represent the 30-40 something professional woman who wants to look fashionable at work but comfortable and sexy while grabbing a drink with the girls during Happy Hour.
Any of the three looks above would also work for a date, business dinner, or “just because.”
There is no denying that Kate is a Hollywood star in her own right, but for those of us who aren’t, this jacket will do the trick! Paired with that voluminous hair and sparkly jewels, ladies can turn heads and have paparazzi doing a double take!
This dress proves that animal prints are here to stay! This lady-like dress will help bring out your inner wild cat albeit in a classy way. The features I like best are the belt cinching in the waist as well as the longer sleeve and hem length perfect for cooler fall weather.
In Kate’s final look released for preview, we see a more casual side to the collection. She is wearing a bright pink, button-down top paired with an animal print skirt (same pattern as dress above) and patent leather belt. For the days that you don’t want to be dressed to the nines, this chic look will help you browse the shops in style, kick-back during Casual Friday, and even make you look dashing while picking up the kids at school.
I love that Ann Taylor has not shied away from bright colors and patterns for the fall!
And since the retailer counts First Lady Michelle Obama, Angelina Jolie, Diane Kruger, Katie Holmes, Heidi Klum, Naomi Watts, Milla Jovovich, Rachel Bilson, Jessica Biel, Halle Berry, Jessica Alba, Jennifer Morrison, Tina Fey, Olivia Wilde, and Sofia Vergara as fans, you can bet you will be in good company during the upcoming season.
