Kate Hudson is designing a capsule collection for Ann Taylor.

The 'Almost Famous' actress has just re-signed as a face of the brand and will broaden her role by working on the collection with creative director with Lisa Axelson.

She told WWD: ''Working with Ann Taylor has been a great creative experience, and there is a really wonderful connection.

''Ann Taylor is great at creating iconic wardrobe staples and updating them season after season. I love that Lisa Axelson is designing clothes for real women.''

For the collection, Kate worked on developing looks which were inspired by her red-carpet style, but reinterpreted for everyday occasions. The collection mark's Kate's first ever foray into dress design.

She will also star in the brand's spring campaign, which was shot by Norman Jean Roy. The collection will then be available at 280 Ann Taylor stores and online from February.

Kate has also joined the advisory council for ANNpower Vital Voices Initiative. The effort is a partnership between Ann Inc., parent company of Ann Taylor, and the Vital Voices Global Partnership, which aims to empowering young women to serve as global leaders.
