THE DEMURE VAMPIRE: If Ashley Greene has her way, the wardrobe she’ll wear to portray her vampire character in the last two films in the blockbuster “Twilight” franchise will be more demure than vampish. “I want her to have an Audrey Hepburn-Jackie-O mix,” Greene said of her character, Alice Cullen. “I’m a huge fan of the Jackie O Ray-Bans. I love ballet flats for her and leggings.” Fitting that ladylike image was the LBD with a studded Peter Pan collar that Greene donned at the dinner British e-tailer Asos hosted Monday at West Hollywood’s Soho House in honor of her recent cover shoot by Victor Demarchelier for ASOS magazine. With a circulation of 500,000, the magazine is one way Asos is growing its brand. Ten years after it was started in England, Asos is trying to expand its U.S. business with free shipping on returns and next month’s introduction of an edgy day-to-night line called Asos White. Hosting soirees such as the dinner attended by Hollywood progeny Kelly Osbourne and celebrity stylists Jen Rade and Jessica Paster also helped get the word out — and perhaps line up new cover girls. “I started wearing Asos before I got the cover,” Greene noted.
