After 18 years in the fashion business, Kate Spade has finally decided to feature a celebrity in its ads. Actress Bryce Dallas Howard may not be synonymous with fashion just yet – her dad is the famous actor, producer, and director, Ron Howard – but she has been a devoted Kate Spade fan for quite some time. Check out how dedicated she is to her Five Points Camille bag.

Bryce was shot modeling the Scout satchel for the Spring/Summer 2011 campaign, by photographer Norman Jean Roy. The 29-year-old rising star will also be featured in the brand’s Autumn/Winter 2011 ads. It’s the first time Bryce has been showcased in a fashion campaign.
Kate Spade is not the only brand Bryce has an ongoing love affair with. She’s been a steadfast Elie Saab supporter on the red carpet.
Bryce chose to wear the designer’s Fall 2010 knee-length black wool dress with chiffon panels to the Museum of Tolerance International Film Festival Gala Awards to honor the director Clint Eastwood in November. Another Elie Saab was selected from the same collection for the October premiere of Bryce’s film, Hereafter. The elegant one-sleeve gown featured dramatic layered ruffle details.
Bryce arrived at the movie’s Toronto showing back in September in an oyster-colored, partially embellished number, also by the well-known designer. She was a stunner in a yellow Christian Dior option, set off with Bulgari jewels for the unveiling of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.
The Kate Spade ads will definitely turn Bryce into a household name, and up her style cred in the process.
