We thought Kate Hudson was already pretty busy — she has two young sons, a jewelry line and an endorsement deal with Almay — but the actress is adding another bullet point to her résumé now as the new face of Ann Taylor.

Joining stars like Demi Moore, Heidi Klum, Katie Holmes and Naomi Watts, Hudson was tapped to continue the company’s focus on “celebrating modern women of substance, style and success across every generation,” according to a release.

“I am thrilled to collaborate with Ann Taylor this spring,” adds Hudson. “I love fashion, and their new spring collection is so stylish and hip and colorful!” Often noted for her boho-chic style, Hudson says that as a young girl she “looked up to the sophisticated style of Ann Taylor, so it’s been very cool to see how the brand has evolved to meet the changing needs of modern women.”

In her ads, shot by photographer Tom Munro at a mountainside estate in Pasadena, Calif., Hudson wears some of her favorite looks from the spring collection, available online and in stores in late February. “The new Ann Taylor is not afraid to be sexy and real,” Hudson says. “The clothes are stylish and comfortable, easy and wearable. They really help you look and feel perfectly put together for any occasion.”

The company is equally happy with its spokeswoman; as senior vice president Kirstin Dykstra says, “While [Hudson] is most known as a beautiful and talented actress, she is also a devoted mother, daughter, sister and philanthropist who manages to do it all with a radiant smile, joie de vivre and effortless style. Kate is a dynamic woman who truly embodies the new Ann Taylor.” Tell us: What do you think of Hudson as the new face of Ann Taylor?

I love Kate Hudson but don’t think she looks very good in these ads-I have seen her look better.

I love Kate Hudson and she looks amazingly beautiful as usual.I love that she follows her heart and does not worry about people on the outside judging without the facts…..

Stephanie on

I love the fact that she looks like a real person. She’s not overly tan or so airbrushed that she looks like a mannequin. Beautiful pictures!

my friend’s sister makes $81/hr on the laptop. She has been without a job for 9 months but last month her check was $7555 just working on the laptop for a few hours. Read more on this site…CaŠhHard.¢õm

It looks like she needs to shave better under her arms.

Well of course she looks good – she’s been retouched more than the characters in Avatar!

I like Kate, but I honestly would not have known that was her. Doesn’t look like her face, style, anything. And she’s naturally funny, but all her comments sound like she’s reading from a cue card.
