The actress has designed a capsule collection for the brand which she says reflects her easygoing personality.
“I love soft, sensual shapes and this collection really captures that,” Hudson tells People.com. “It’s sexy, tasteful and easy to dress up or dress down.” The collection includes chic summer pieces like this jewel neck sleeveless dress and accessories including “Shimmer” heels and these chunky platform heels (hello, summer). You’ll also find rose gold necklaces and earrings to accentuate all that glorious white.

When morning talk shows and local newspapers dole out their seasonal swimsuit shopping advice, I’m usually pretty disappointed by the lack of body types represented. What about the women who don’t resemble fruit? (Or aren’t boy-shaped—the third “one of these things is not like the other” category I’ve never quite understood. Couldn’t they say “banana?” Or is that somehow more offensive than “apple” and “pear” shapes?)
