Kate Hudson's adding fashion designer to her already impressive resumé!
The star is teaming up with Ann Taylor again—but isn't just going to be the face of the brand this time around. The 33-year-old will also be a guest designer for their capsule collection! “Working with Ann Taylor has been a great creative experience, and there is a really wonderful connection," the working mom told WWD.
The collection, which is set to debut in May, will be “inspired by her red-carpet style, reinterpreted for everyday occasions.”
And with a wardrobe like this hot mama's, who wouldn't want to wear her creations? We can't wait until we're able to check them out, but until then, we're taking a look at the top 5 stars who've already made it in the fashion world:
Gwen StefaniFollowing her incredibly successful music career, the No Doubt front woman set her sights on fashion—and it worked! In 2004, she developed her first line, L.A.M.B., which takes influence from a variety of styles, including Japanese. In June 2005, she created her second and less expensive line, "Harajuku Lovers." “[Fashion] is very, very hard to do well, but I’m learning," the 43-year-old has said.Victoria BeckhamShe may have been a Spice Girl, but her true passion was always fashion. Since the mid 00's, Victoria, 38, has been a staple in the style scene. In 2011, it was reported she sold about $12 million worth of clothing! Her self-titled line is a smash hit and shows no signs of slowing down. "I wanted clothes that were flattering, timeless, good quality," she says. "That was something that Marc Jacobs said to me at the beginning. He said, 'If you have the best quality, people can always say it’s not their taste. But not that it’s rubbish.'"
Jessica SimpsonAll hail the success that is Jessica. The 32-year-old's self-titled collection not only has clothing, but handbags, sunglasses, and jewelry as well. In 2006, the brand launched a shoe collaboration with Nine West co-founder Vince Camuto, and because of its success, Jessica added that into her collection. In 2011, it was projected that the brand would make $1 billion—the first celebrity owned clothing line to hit that mark! "When it comes to other celebrity brands, I think a lot of people do a great job, but it can't be all about them," she says about her success. "Everybody doesn't want to just look like the celebrity, because they can't. They just want one element of that style."
Nicole RichieIn 2008, the fashionista debuted a jewelry line, House of Harlow 1960. In spring 2010, it was extended to include clothing and shoes. Two years later, she launched a collection for Macy's called Impulse. With her boho-chic sense of style, Nicole's taste is impeccable and it's obvious to see why she's been such a hit in the field. "This has been in my head for a very long time. With Winter Kate, we started out so small. It’s taken me four seasons even to expand into doing leathers, laser cuts, furs. I have goals for House of Harlow and for Winter Kate: Ultimately, this will be a lifestyle brand. I’m going to do home furnishings and flatware, everything. (But) right now my focus is my family, and everything comes second to that," the 31-year-old has shared.
Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley OlsenThe Olsens have always had a role in the fashion world. In the mid 00's, the launched The Row and in 2007, the launched Elizabeth & James, a contemporary collection inspired by their many unique vintage faves. Their fashion empire is reportedly worth $1 billion, so it's safe to say they're doing something right. And it doesn't look like they're stopping anytime soon. "When the time is right, we definitely want some sort of home where we display it the way we want to," the 26-year-old twins say.
