Today kicked off the first official day of press appearances for the vampy cast of “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1”. First stop? Paris, of course! Ashley Greene arrived on the fan-lined red carpet after co-star Robert Pattinson (pictured below) at the Gaumont Capucines cinéma for a special fan event.
Not only did Ashley wear
head-to-toe black, it was all by Givenchy! The 24-year-old actress wore a beautiful Resort 2012 folded navy blue peplum sleeveless cocktail dress ( which looked navy blue due to lighting) that she paired with a silver spearhead pendant necklace on a leather strap from the Spring/Summer 2012 collection.
Givenchy always has somewhat of a rock ‘n’ roll edge to me that I’m almost shocked to see Ashley wearing this look. I never saw that as being her style, and if we’re going off this… I don’t think my feelings have changed.
Don’t get me wrong — even though the necklace looks a little heavy for the dress — I oddly still like the styling a lot. I just don’t like it on Ashley. I feel like it made her body look a little wide, and because the dress cut at the center of her knees and the ankle straps are thick around her muscular legs, she appears shorter than she is.
She used accessories for next season but didn’t jump into the full look, and I’m thrilled to see some of the resort pieces still being worn. My only complaint is that she didn’t wear the black leather sandals with the fierce silver horns seen during the SS12 catwalk presentation (see below).
Ashley’s makeup featured pretty glittery eyes and slightly unkempt hair which was well suited for the look.
