Third time’s a charm for Kate Hudson: the actress returns as the face of Ann Taylor for a third season in the brand’s fall 2012 campaign.

“Fall is always my favorite season,” Hudson tells WWD. “I love layers and Ann Taylor is really going for more color and prints and fashion and stepping out of the box for their company.”

Shot by photographer Tom Munro at the French château-like Craven Estate in Pasadena, Calif., the campaign draws inspiration from the modern woman and the glamour of Paris in the 1960s. “I love the ’60s Parisian influence, animal prints, silhouettes and bold, bright colors,” the star says in a statement. “The pieces are stylish, versatile and comfortable.”

All items featured in the campaign will be available starting in mid-August in Ann Taylor stores and online. Tell us: Will you be buying anything from Ann Taylor’s fall collection?
