I’m pretty excited to see Katie Holmes as the face of Ann Taylor‘s spring 2011 ad campaign. C’mon, she’s the all-American girl-next-door (can’t help but think of Dawson’s Creek) who has blossomed into a beautiful young lady. While I don’t always agree with her personal style (give her a break, she’s a hard-working mom!), I think she looks gorgeous in this super-cute wool jacket and trousers get-up – soooo flattering! Not to mention both her hair and make-up are spot-on gorgeous.
“We are thrilled to have Katie as the face of Ann Taylor. Katie personifies the Ann Taylor brand – smart, talented, incredibly chic, and living a full life with beauty and grace. We admire and respect Katie for her intellect, kindness and enduring personal style.” — Christine Beauchamp, President of Ann Taylor Stores
What a fresh new angle for Ann Taylor whose past campaign spokesmodels have most recently included Heidi Klum, Milla Jovovich and Naomi Watts. The spring campaign was shot by world-renowned fashion photographer Tom Munro, and will debut in March magazines.
P.S. We’re covering the spring press preview next week, and would SQUEAL if we had a Katie sighting…just saying…
