Kate Hudson is hoping to bring "a little sexiness" to her new campaign for Ann Taylor.

The 'Almost Famous' actress is to star in the fall shots for the women's clothing brand - by Tom Munro - and likes working with them because they are not as "rigid" as other label.

She said: "Sometimes when you work with big brands, you feel they have a very specific formula and I think Ann Taylor goes further with it. Ann Taylor isn't afraid of a little sexiness. I think it's about a working woman who can own her own sensuality."

Kate also said she's looking forward to starring in a fall campaign because it means she can layer up.

She added to WWD: "Fall is always my favourite season. I love layers and Ann Taylor is really going for more colour and prints and fashion and stepping out of the box for their company."

The campaign was shot at the Craven Estate, a French chateau-inspired mansion in Pasadena, California, and aims to capture a whiff of the Continental glamour of Sixties Paris.

Kate wears a mix of dresses and separates in statement prints, in pops of colour, as well as basic black, in the new images.
