Kate Hudson: My collection is clean

Kate Hudson has revealed her favourite pieces from her new fashion line for Ann Taylor.

The actress recently co-designed a capsule collection for American design house Ann Taylor.

Kate signed on to be the face of the brand in spring 2012 and her first collection was designed with Lisa Axelson, Ann Taylor’s creative director.

"It’s compact and has all the pieces you need for a wardrobe," Kate told WWD. "It’s all clean and white and flowy and flirty with rose-gold accents, and I thought that was so right on, as far as my aesthetic. I’ll definitely go deeper into fashion at some point.”

Kate makes no bones about her love for fashion. But the star says it was Lisa who helped to translate her iconic style into the new collection.

“I could spend hours looking at sketches and feeling materials. But I like how Lisa interpreted my style for this collection," Kate said.

Kate recently attended the Breast Cancer Research Foundation’s annual lunch at New York's Waldorf Astoria Hotel, where she presented Kay Krill, Ann Inc. president and CEO, with the Sandra Taub Humanitarian Award. Kate said that Kay is one of her "mentors".

“I’ve had a lot of mentors in my life, but I have to say Kay and how she structured her company and her focuses not only on the brand but on philanthropic causes is truly admirable,” said Kate, who wore a long-sleeve black jersey Ann Taylor dress to the event.

Kate's new line hits stores from May 20.
