NEW YORK, Oct. 17, 2012 /CNW/ - Ann 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 a fresh, new perspective to the iconic fashion brand that has resonated with existing and new Ann Taylor clients worldwide. The campaign will debut in late October and features Hudson wearing some of her favorite looks from the collection as well as some of her most coveted gifts for this holiday season.
"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."
All items featured in the Holiday 2012 campaign will be available starting this week at Ann Taylor stores
