Kate Hudson Designing Ann Taylor Capsule Collection (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

We know what you woke up thinking this morning: the world really could use another celebrity-designed clothing line.

Kate Hudson is bringing her design skills to Ann Taylor as a "guest designer on a capsule collection," reports Women's Wear Daily. It will be the first foray into fashion design for the actress, who was previously employed by Ann Taylor simply as a celebrity face. Kate shot two ad campaigns for the womenswear retailer and will follow them up with a third for Spring 2013.

The inspiration for the capsule collection, writes WWD, is Hudson's own red carpet style "reinterpreted for everyday occasions," a vague mission statement we'd normally scoff at. But after Hudson's masterful red carpet turn at the 2013 Golden Globes in that stunning black Alexander McQueen gown, we're actually pretty excited.

How that couture-level style could possibly be translated into a $45 cardigan or blouse at our local Ann Taylor is unclear, but we're certainly willing to give it a shot.
