Ashley Greene gets gritty for the DKNY Jeans Spring 2012 ad campaign.
“I did not know it was going to be that big,” she told FashionEtc of the billboard. “It’s humongous! I don’t think in my wildest dreams I would have thought I’d be a part of something like that. It’s very exciting.”
Greene connected with the brand after attending a Donna Karan fashion show and meeting the namesake designer post-catwalk.
Soon, Karan was offering to custom-make a gown for Greene to wear at the Met Gala.
“We get along, and we stand for the same thing,” she told us of Karan. “[We both have] a very positive message to women of empowerment.”
And the clothes aren’t too shabby, either. “It’s the greatest thing in the world to be able to have these gowns custom designed for you,” she said.
“They’ll send maybe 20 sketches, and we can kind of mix and match if we want to and go from there. It’s so fun to be able to dip your toes into something like that and be a part of the creative process.”
Don’t hold your breath for the Ashley Greene clothing line, though—while she loves working with the DKNY team (and who wouldn’t?), she told FashionEtc her schedule’s a little packed at the moment for a project like that.
You may have heard of a little thing called Breaking Dawn?
