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?

This woman is absolutely gorgeous in anything she wears. She is the avatar of elegance.

Love it! She is perfection!

Beautiful! She always looks gorgeous in yellow. I’ve been off Ann Taylor lately but I might go back. So bright & spring-y.

Pete on

She’s a buttaface and she could use some implants.

Joanna on

I can’t put my finger on what, but there’s something I’ve never liked about her. I think part of it is her promiscuousness. She’s slept with half of Hollywood and who knows how many athletes, it seems, and she’s a horrible role model for her older son.

Tara on

Well then Pete, she isn’t by definition a buttaface if she needs implants and I know a lot of men who would strongly disagree with you. Comments like that tend to come from men who are really insecure and are lucky they have their right hand (or left depending on your dexterity).
