Well With Rachel Ashwell... A Song for Vogue... 'Twilight' Fashion Frenzy...

Designer Rachel Ashwell insists she will reopen a Shabby Chic store soon.... Verve lead singer Richard Ashcroft will perform at British Vogue editor's dinner...

‘TWILIGHT’S’ FASHIONABLE HORIZON: If the hordes of squealing girls amassed outside Kitson last weekend were any indication, Awake Inc.’s launch of a special edition “Twilight” clothing line should be quickly embraced by the tween set. Synched with the hit teen vampire film’s DVD release March 21, Awake — JEM Sportswear’s women’s apparel division — released the line of “Twilight”-inspired T-shirts, hoodies and thermals designed exclusively for the trendy Robertson Boulevard chain. The line will be extended to department stores and will be followed by a second line planned to accompany the movie franchise’s next installment, “New Moon,” in November. Other youth-bent retailers like Hot Topic already have fared extremely well with licensed “Twilight” apparel. Eager fans lined up around the block to catch a glimpse of the film’s stars — Ashley Green, Rachelle Lefevre and Kellan Lutz — who obliged the waiting fans and their giddy mothers by posing for photos. The young actors agreed the line of soft knits was in tune with their personal styles of comfy cottons, knit beanies and trendy leggings. But will any of them be caught wearing the sold-out “I heart Edward Cullen” T-shirt? “Absolutely not. I think Rob [Pattinson] gets enough love as it is,” said Lefevre of the actor who portrays Cullen.
