Just out: Ann Taylor’s Holiday 2012 ad campaign starring actress Kate Hudson
What makes my morning soar is to see everyday, real world clothes look glam and gorgeous.
Not the red carpet fabulouso outfits that are totally aspirational and inaccessible to our real lives- but real clothes designed for regular women, and that they happen to be worn by a gorgeous actress. Marketing genius, yes. Style strategy to think about– you bet.
Kate Hudson (okay, we won’t think about the rumor that she worked out for SIX hours a day to get her post baby figure back in shape) looks marvelous in the clean cut and sophisticated styling of Ann Taylor.
What makes these looks pop is Kate’s effortless yet styled hair, natural makeup, and edgy ankle boots. YOU should think about those elements to keep your personal style modern.

Here’s the backstory: Shot by acclaimed fashion photographer and Vogue alumn Norman Jean Roy, Kate Hudson brings her elegant sensibilities while wearing some of her favorite looks from the company’s fall collection. Hudson’s natural beauty works to punctuate the directional, wearable, real world chic appeal of Ann Taylor.
Marking a full year as the face of Ann Taylor, the campaign debuts later this month and features Hudson in an art-deco inspired room meant to evoke holiday get togethers.

“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.”
We love the peplum top above paired with an unexpected brown belt and the striped minimal top below…
