Thursday, January 24, 2013

Kate Hudson Ann Taylor clothing collection

Kate Hudson has re-signed as the face of Ann Taylor, and it’s also been confirmed that she’s designing a capsule collection for the label!

The new line will be inspired by her red-carpet style–but “reinterpreted” for everyday occasions, according to WWD. “Working with Ann Taylor has been a great creative experience, and there is a really wonderful connection,” Hudson said in a statement. “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.”

Hudson will star in the ad campaign for the brand, which will be shot by Norman Jean Roy.  Hudson has been working with Ann Taylor creative director Lisa Axelson to design the collection, and it is set to hit stores in May.  Can’t wait to see more!

Rooney Mara On The Red Carpet: “It’s A Nightmare!”

Monday, January 14, 2013

Rooney Mara red carpet interview Vogue quotesRooney Mara is featured on the February issue of Vogue Magazine, and this marks her second cover on the fashion glossy.

While the last one dealt with promotion of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and Rooney’s edgy look for the film, this piece focuses on her style and new film projects she’s been working on.

While she “loves” her stylist (“He’s very quiet and thoughtful, and we just instantly got along,” she says), apparently she dislikes red carpet appearances more than watching herself on screen. “The thing is, it’s kind of an annoying part of the job,” she says.  “Because I’m not a model, and I don’t want to be. I didn’t try to be a style icon. I’m just not that interested in that world. But it does matter, and either I can fight that or I just have to accept that it is a part of my job, and I may as well wear things that I like and that represent me.”  How very K. Stew of her!

On actually walking down the red carpet, Rooney tells Vogue, “[It’s] a nightmare! It’s a panic attack waiting to happen. I don’t even like people to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ to me. When we wrap a film and everyone claps and cheers, I turn red. And then I have to walk out onto the middle of this carpet and there are all these photographers, and they’re all screaming at you. And usually there’s a party at the other end of it, so it’s not even like I have solace at the end of the carpet! It’s like then I have to walk into my other nightmare!”

Funny thing is, this is the girl co-hosting the annual Costume Institute benefit gala at the Met for its “Punk: From Chaos to Couture” exhibit this May.
