Yesterday morning Ashley Greene attended the press conference and photo call for “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” in Madrid, Spain. Last year Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner took care of all the overseas promotion dates but, with Robert filming “Water For Elephants” and Taylor and Kristen exhausted from their around the world stops, it was fun to see Ashley Greene and her co-star Xavier Samuel with director David Slade (not pictured) taking the reigns in Spain.
For the photocall Ashley wore a very mature tie-neck blouse and Pre-Fall seamed pencil skirt by Michael Kors with a matching belt that featured a large studded buckle. While the outfit is pretty, I think it ages Ashley severely. I would expect to see Meryl Streep in this, not Ashley–nevertheless, the 23-year-old actress oozed confidence. I wish I could’ve gotten a closer look at her snakeskin peep-toe pumps by Alexandre Birman.
I expected to see something short and sassy for the premiere that night, but instead got to see Ashley in my favorite dress from Donna Karan‘s new Resort 2011 collection. The knee-length black lace dress with the large belted bow looked fantastic on Ashley’s figure. With her hair in a casual side-braid, she threw on her burgundy t-strap ‘Cristal’ sandals by Brian Atwood to complete the look. You can’t see it too well from the photo, but there’s a metallic gold bow that sits at the heel of the shoe. I love the shoes, but I would’ve preferred to see them paired with a different dress. Maybe some strappy sandals would’ve been better suited.
