5 Questions With Ashley Greene

The Twilight star and face of DKNY and DKNY Jeans spoke to WWD at her Macy’s Herald Square appearance for the brand.

Ashley Greene, “Twilight” star and face of DKNY and DKNY Jeans, spoke to WWD at a Macy’s Herald Square public appearance.


WWD: You are playing a fashion designer in your first TV series, the pilot “Americana,” filming now. Did you learn any great tips or tricks on set?
Ashley Greene:
Pat Field is the costume designer and she took a vintage coat and turned it inside out and then belted it, which gave it a really vintage distressed look, which was great.

WWD: What items of clothing are in heavy rotation in your personal wardrobe?
A.G.:
DKNY skinny jeans are always a staple for me, and they have amazing (and actually reversible) shearling coats that I’ve been wearing a lot.

WWD: What music are you listening to these days?
A.G.:
I like Pandora.com a lot because I just plug in a song and it goes. I’ve gone back to Ray LaMontagne a lot lately, Taylor Swift’s new song on the “Hunger Games” soundtrack is so good, and I’m a huge fan of Bruno Mars.

WWD: Any fun summer plans?
A.G.:
Hopefully I’ll be working, assuming the pilot gets picked up. I think Fourth of July is one holiday I always try and go back home for, so if I have time I’ll hopefully get to Jacksonville, Fla.

WWD: With the “Twilight” series coming to end, did you nick anything special from the set?
A.G.:
Not this last time, but in the very beginning I took Alice’s Cullen crest necklace, which is pretty awesome, so I have that still, and I took the Jackie Ohh Ray-Ban sunglasses from the second movie. But then I stopped; I thought they are going to start yelling at me.
