Lei Chic Shop
Star Power
As if we need another reason to love Kate Hudson, the actress collaborated with Ann Taylor on an exclusive capsule collection, now available online. The 14-piece collection features elegant, flowy white basics, delicate rose-gold jewelry, and a shimmery platform sandal, all inspired by Hudson's covetable personal style.

Where: J.Crew-on-the-island, Ala Moana Center.
