As an extension of her exclusive clothing collaboration over the summer, Kate Hudson is back as global face of classic womenswear label Ann Taylor. A favourite among smart and sophisticated style icons, like First Lady Michelle Obama, it seems fitting that the campaign features Hudson playing the role of a modern working woman. Sporting clean, contemporary (office-appropriate) looks—including a crisp collared lace dress, cropped leopard print sweater and a figure-flattering belted top and skirt—Hudson reminds us that there is no better face for the brand.
As the much-loved actress describes in Ann Taylor’s teaser video, the photoshoot depicts “the wild wonderful life women live today.” In the campaign the actress can be seen jetting off to work, posing in a modern office space and in the family kitchen (the child models are Hudson’s real life little nephews!) The imagery highlights Ann Taylor’s knack for creating pieces that speak to both creative career women and the put-together mom-on-the-go.
Beyond bringing back Hudson, Ann Taylor has also been working to elevate and expand its footwear offerings. For fall, the label has also teamed up with Vince Camuto, a go-to brand for affordable accessories. Available in stores and online, the new shoe line offers an assortment of beautifully crafted ballet flats—with quilted leather and pointed metallic toe cap details—alongside a selection of statement heels and other feminine footwear. (One of Kate Hudson’s favourites is a pair of laser cut high heel booties, a great way to inject some glam into a woman’s ensemble.)
