Kate Hudson re-signed for another season as the face of  Ann Taylor, as well as the role of a guest designer for the Kate Hudson x Ann Taylor capsule collection.

The brand’s creative director, Lisa Axelson, is working with Kate on a line that is sophisticated, yet comfortable enough to be worn for everyday occasions.
