Ashley Greene is the New Face of DKNY

It was reported by People Style Watch yesterday that Ashley Greene, of Twilight fame, will be the new face of DKNY Jeans for their spring 2012 campaign. Ms. Green, who was catapulted to celebrity status in 2008 after being cast in the role Alice Cullen in the super-popular Twilight saga, has already made it obvious that her talents do not stop with acting. Last summer she entered the spotlight in the beauty industry as the face of cosmetic’s brand Mark, where she used her acting chops to give interested consumers a behind the scenes look at a cosmetics photo shoot complete with some style tips from the pros. Now with spring 2012 just around the corner Ms. Greene will appear at the center of a DKNY ad campaign shot by Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin which we can expect to see images for in the near future.

“I’ve always loved Donna Karan’s creations,” Greene stated in a press release responding to DKNY’s announcement. “To be a part of the brands’ message is incredibly exciting because it feels like such an organic fit. It’s easy to talk about how these clothes work for my lifestyle, whether I’m in New York, L.A. or traveling for work.”

Ashley’s rise toward star status was nearly derailed less then a year after the first Twilight movie was released when she became the center of a scandal involving nude photographs that had been taken of her prior to her status as a popular young actress. However she handled the embarrassing issue and heightened media scrutiny with intelligence and a maturity that was not only beyond her age but seems to be beyond the grasp of many young Hollywood stars in the 21st century. Since then she has displayed keen interest in controlling her image and has shown defined personal taste and elegant style on red carpets throughout the United States and Europe.

Whether or not the red carpet has prepared her for the rigors of the modeling and advertising worlds has yet to be seen but Ms. Green is definitely a young actress worth watching over the next few years.
