Ashley Greene stepped out at the Los Angeles premiere of her new movie, “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,” looking ravishing in a pale grayish-lavender dress. The flowy layers, loose silhouette, gorgeous wavy hair and subtle makeup give the whole look a pretty, airy quality. It’s likely that Ashley used a slew of professionals to help her create this high-style ensemble, but you can achieve the same ethereal effect in your everyday wardrobe for a fraction of the cost.
It seems Ashley Greene is everywhere lately. Whether in print, online, in the theater or on TV, her perfect skin and sassy smile are hard to miss these days. Her look is girl-next-door fresh but always on trend.
Ashley’s Grecian-inspired strapless dress is gathered at the top and skims her body for a super-flattering shape that works with any body type. Translate her formal look into a drapey top that can work easily into your existing wardrobe. Pair this Pick Up Drape top from Oasis ($8) with loose boyfriend jeans, slim jeans or leggings. For a dressier occasion, this jersey drapey dress from French Connection ($38) provides the same elegance as Ashley’s gown, but on a smaller scale.
Ashley’s classic half-up do is the perfect complement to her feminine dress, and anyone can duplicate the look. Gently separate the sides and top of your hair from the bottom (leaving bangs free if you have them) and secure the strands half-way down the back of your head. Add a hint of romance by attaching a delicate flower hair clip like this one by Tasha Sinamay ($19). Wrap large sections of loose hair around the barrel of a large curling iron and allow each piece to cascade to your shoulders. Use a light spritz of hairspray to further encourage the wave.
To achieve Ashley’s gorgeous makeup, use bright colors with a light hand. First, prep skin with a primer such as Cover FX Clear Prep ($39) to create a smooth canvas. Lightly swipe eyelids with a pastel shade that complements your skin tone, such as POP Beauty’s pastel shadow palette ($22). More than anything, it’s Ashley’s bright cheeks and lips that give her a pop of innocent beauty. Tarte’s Natural Cheek Stain in True Love ($30) provides a wash of translucent color, while Natural Lip Stain in Charmed ($24) plumps your pout with subtle color.
