Adding to her numerous current cover gigs, Ashley Greene brightens up the front page of Flare magazine's December 2011 issue.
The "Twilight" actress looks radiant in a dress by Marchesa and earrings and a ring by Laruicci as she posed for a spread shot by Max Abadian while poolside at a private residence in Beverly Hills.
Highlights from Miss Greene's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to visit Flare!
On wearing trends:
“I think trends are dangerous. Just because it’s a trend doesn’t necessarily mean it’s going to work on you, and I think that’s where a lot of fashion mistakes are made. People just go with what’s hot and what’s hip. And for me, things overwhelm me easily so I have to be really specific about what I wear.”
On the Canadian impact on her wardrobe:
In Vancouver, I found my favorite store on the face of the planet – Aritzia. Every time I filmed there, I’d basically clean out the store. It was a nice thing because they only had it in Canada, but now it’s also in New York. I feel that’s going to get me into a lot of trouble.”
On fashion tips she’s learned along the way:
“I’ve certainly learned that every woman has a different body type so you have to learn to love yourself and work with what you have. If you were born with an athletic figure, you’re never going to have Scarlett Johansson’s body. Once you get past that, you become a lot happier in your clothes decisions and with yourself.”
On Alice’s (of the Twilight saga) clairvoyant powers:
“It sounds really cool but I think it would drive me crazy, honestly. It kind of takes away the mystery of life a little bit. I think I would just drive myself absolutely insane trying to stop things from happening.”
On a favorite red carpet moment:
"Prabal Gurung had a red dress that I wore to the New Moon premiere, and it was floor length, a very simple silhouette, had a tiny bit of a train in the back. When I wore that, I think I felt, for the first time, like a movie star.”
On her next move:
“Right now I’m just reading a lot [of scripts], trying to figure out what the next move is going to be. I feel like everyone’s kind of watching and waiting saying ‘What are these kids going to do?’ So I’m just taking full advantage of being able to take things at a very steady pace and figure them out as I go.”
On her off-camera style:
“I’m obviously a really huge fan of showing off your figure, but still being feminine and classy. I think there’s something to be said for keeping something to the imagination.”
On helping the costume designers with Alice’s bridesmaid dress:
“I wanted Alice’s past incorporated into her dress a little bit. She’s from the 1920s and 1930s, so we kind of kept that in mind.”
