Kate Hudson Returns as the Face of Ann Taylor


nn Taylor announces world-renowned actress Kate Hudson will return as the face of the brand’s Holiday 2012 advertising campaign. Shot by famed fashion photographer Norman Jean Roy at the Highline Stages in New York City, the campaign is inspired by a deco dinner party and captures Hudson’s warmth, her love of the holidays, and the sophistication of the collection.

Marking a full year as the face of Ann Taylor, Hudson continues to bring her good looks and star power to the Ann Taylor brand. The campaign debuts this month.

“The holidays are so busy, it’s nice to see that Ann Taylor has designed a collection that can go from day to night so easily,” Hudson says. “The jewelry is strong yet sexy, and has just the right bit of sparkle. It’s perfect for holiday gifts and I just love the faux fur cardigan.”  Hudson knows a thing or two about being busy; the actress reportedly lives in London for six months of the year with her fiance and raises new baby Bingham Hawn Bellamy (born in July 2011,) and son, Ryder. She is rumored to live the other six months back in California near her family.

All items featured in the Holiday 2012 campaign are available at Ann Taylor stores nationwide and on In celebration of Kate and the holiday collection, all Ann Taylor stores nationwide, will be booking appointments for personal styling sessions and refreshments from Thursday, October 25 – Sunday, October 28.
