Actress Kate Hudson is taking a natural step in the evolution of a celebrity spokesmodel, going from appearing in ads for Ann Taylor to designing a collection for Ann Taylor. The first Kate Hudson for Ann Taylor collection, including white dresses, white tank tops and white skirts for summer, is described by the company as inspired by her “red carpet glamour and her love of fashion.” (Most of the clothes in the collection are priced less than $128.)
Hudson, in a phone interview, was quick to point out that the collection was really designed by Lisa Axelson, the creative director of Ann Taylor, but she enjoyed having input.
