Kate Hudson, currently the face of Ann Taylor, has designed a capsule collection for the specialty womenswear retailer. Most recently seen at the Golden Globes in a stunning Alexander McQueen gown, the actress collaborated with creative director Lisa Axelson on a summer line-up inspired by her own red-carpet style.
“Working with Ann Taylor has been a great creative experience, and there is a really wonderful connection,” said Hudson. “Ann Taylor is great at creating iconic wardrobe staples and updating them season after season.”
The Kate Hudson for Ann Taylor capsule collection is due to hit stores in May. Given Kate’s impressive red carpet track record, we can’t wait to see it.

Golden Globes 2013 turned out to be quite the night! Honourary Backseat Styler D joined us for this year’s festivities and we spent the evening critiquing the red carpet fashions, accusing each other of cheating in the GG pool, and playing Amy Poehler and Tina Fey’s Golden Globes drinking game. Lots of controversy, to say the least. So much so, in fact, that we couldn’t even narrow the best dressed field down to 10.
While the red carpet as a whole left much to be desired, favourites like Kate Hudson in Alexander McQueen, Anne Hathaway in Chanel and Julianne Moore in Tom Ford were shoo-ins. Ladies in red Jennifer Lawrence (in Christian Dior) and Naomi Watts (in Zac Posen) also made the cut, as did Kerry Washington in an embellished Miu Miu frock. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley looked drop-dead gorgeous in a bow-adorned Saint Laurent gown, while Julianna Margulies and Michelle Dockery both took risks with their Pucci and Alexandre Vauthier gowns that paid off.
The final spot in our top ten best dressed of the night was a toss-up between Rachel Weisz in a sheer, polka-dotted number by Louis Vuitton (S’s pick) and Katharine McPhee‘s revealing Theyskens’ Theory dress (T’s pick). Rather than settle the issue via a breakdance fight, we decided to expand our list to 11 and call it a night.

This is a red carpet look that you’ll either love or hate. A poncho on the red carpet might sound ridiculous to some, but I’m of the opinion that this Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2010 cape transcends carpet colours. Worn yesterday at the premiere of “The Killer Inside Me” at the 2010 Tribeca Film Festival, Kate Hudson takes a risk that pays off in spades. Her hair and makeup could use some work, but who’s looking up there when there’s such a fab cape in sight?
InStyle recently took it upon themselves to name the top 100 dresses of the decade.They were bang on with some of their picks, including Kate Hudson in Versace in 2003 (which took the #1 spot), Joy Bryant in Donna Karan in 2005 (#11 on the list) and Cate Blanchett in Armani Prive in 2007.
However, there were some noticeable omissions in InStyle‘s list that we’re luckily reminded of by The Huffington Post, including Sofia Coppola’s short Chloé number at the Cannes Film Festival in 2004.
It’s understandable how it might’ve gotten lost among a decade’s worth of long, dramatic gowns, but the dress’ feminine yet demure design coupled with Sofia Coppola’s down-to-earth style gives this ensemble an unexpected memorability and appeal.
While I can forgive missing Sofia Coppola in Chloé, InStyle‘s omission of Michelle Williams’ unforgettable canary yellow Vera Wang gown at the 2006 Oscars is glaring and downright confusing. A travesty, if I may be a bit dramatic.
Not only was the dress itself exquisite, but it was also perfectly styled from head to toe. The hair, the makeup, the jewelry and the gown made for one very stunning Ms. Williams. In fact, if it were up to me, I’d say move over Kate, the top spot goes to Michelle.
