“Twilight” actress Ashley Greene is the new face of DKNY. “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,” Greene said to InStyle magazine of her new role as model and brand ambassador. She called the role “an organic fit.”
With a campaign launch in Times Square, Greene’s DKNY billboard can be seen in the middle of one of the busiest areas of the city, seen by thousands of pedestrians each day. Greene wore a red shearling DKNY coat from the brand’s resort 2012 collection.
The 24-year-old “Twilight” actress is also a huge fan of DKNY, both professionally and personally.
“I just got this incredible DKNY reversible black shearling jacket. I love it because the closet space in New York is so terrible, and it’s nice to have two jackets in one piece!” she said. “And I love wedges right now. They’re really comfortable and, especially when you’re running around New York, it’s nice to have a shoe that you can walk in.”
