Summer style already? Why not?

Kate Hudson glows in her latest round of photos for Ann Taylor — this set for the brand’s summer 2012 collection. The actress works several colorful separates, lounging around the same Pasadena, Calif., residence she was photographed in for her spring campaign earlier this year.

“When I think of the new Ann Taylor I think chic, modern clothes and bold, brilliant color,” Hudson tells PEOPLE. “It’s the perfect mix of sophisticated fashion with modern edge.”

Ann Taylor has received a modern makeover in the past few years thanks to head designer Lisa Axelson, who joined the brand in 2009. And Hudson appreciates that youthful touch. “The new Ann is all about amazing, versatile pieces that take you from weekdays to weekends,” she shares. “I love that. It just makes you feel good.”

Hudson, who joined Ann Taylor in January, follows in the footsteps of past brand spokesmodels Demi Moore, Heidi Klum, Katie Holmes and Naomi Watts. The clothes she wears in her new ads will hit stores and in late April. Tell us: What do you think of Hudson’s photos?
