Ashley Greene seen on Oct 06 2013 in Los Angeles, CA. Ashley Greene was photographed rocking her mega-blonde hair while holding hands with her beau Paul Khoury in LA on October 6, and wore a floaty and feminine maxi dress for her daytime outing. From there, AG added on a pair of Tory Burch flats, a black leather tote, and a brown leather waist belt (like Elise M.'s Savannah Natural Skinny in Cappuccino) to accessorize her ensemble. If you're inspired by Ashley's printed maxi on this occasion, try Clover Canyon's Color Print Halter Dress in Multi for a similar option. One of Gypsy 05's patterned maxis, like the Sanur Maxi Dress in Tropical Reef or the Tube Maxi in Moonbeam are nice options too. Do you like Ashley's outfit on this occasion? I'm also curious to see if you like her as a platinum blonde, or if you prefer her with dark locks. I think I'm going to have to go with brunette... but I would love to hear your thoughts! In other news, Hollywood Life is reporting that the Twilight actress may be engaged! During a recent outing, Ashley sported quite the rock on her ring finger, and according to the site, "He headed to headed to lunch wearing a pair of baggy grey sweats and a tank, while she wore jeans and a tee, and ditched her makeup ó she still looked gorgeous, of course. However, one thing that wasnít casual was on her left ring finger. Thatís right! Ashley was showing off quite the rock on her finger." Usually I don't buy it when assumptions about celebrity engagements are made just because someone is wearing a ring, but I must admit... the ring in question DOES look quite a lot like an engagement ring!

A pair of black peep toe platforms finished off AG's 'fit. For a pair of heels that's a bit more unique than your regular black pair, be sure to check out Alice + Olivia's Larimore Pumps in Dark Green. Do you like seeing Ashley this dark and edgy, or do you prefer when she goes for a lighter, more colorful look? In Ashley beauty news, the Twilight actress debuted a bright blonde hairstyle just days after her appearance here! According to Hollywood Life, "The once brunette star debuted a heavy blonde highlight with dark roots. The actress looked positively radiant with her new blonde locks. The heavily highlighted hair featured different shades of blonde and caramel with dark brown roots.

A large ivory tote (for something that's similar, check out Julie K Handbags' fabulously neutral Jacqui Gold Cobra in Gold/Beige) and a turquoise manicure (fresh from the salon!) finished off her look. Are you a fan, friends? In other Ashley news, the starlet recently spoke out about the tragic fire in her apartment that claimed the life of her pet dog. She has also been focusing on charity work of late, which she says have put her own problems into perspective. Ashley told People: "Obviously, I've had a rough few months, but I'm doing okay. I'm exploring new opportunities, and I try to participate in charity events as much as possible. It's very important to me to focus on others, not just myself. You look at children with cancer and you think, 'Wow, it really puts my own problems into perspective'. Not to say that what we all go through isn't important, but there are people who have much greater problems that they deal with every day." Wise words!

Ashley Greene seen on Aug 03 2012 in West Hollywood, CA. Ashley Greene was spotted alongside her Twilight co-star Kellan Lutz at the Carbon Audio Zooka Launch Party that was held on August 3 in West Hollywood, followed by a celebrity-studded dance party (other guests included Katy Perry and Brittany Snow) at hot LA nightspot Bootsy Bellows. For her big night out, Ashley opted for an orange Yigal Azrouel dress and kept her styling simple, with only a pair of nude Barbara Bui heels and a gold Arunashi ring. If you are into this dreamy tangerine hue, check out two dresses in a similar shade here on CoutureCandy - Stretta's Rosie Dress in Marigold and Bianca Nero's Mini Dress with Beaded Neck in Tangerine. From there, add on a fancy and feminine gold ring (like Avanessi's Knot Ring in Yellow Gold) for a simple touch as Ashley did. Do you think her look could have used a clutch, everyone? Something like Julie K Handbags' Natalie Gold Cobra Clutch would have worked quite well with her neutral heels. Thoughts, everyone? Ashley recently offered her style advice when it comes to the world of denim with People, and had this to say about the wardrobe staple: "Iím all over the spectrum with jeans. I grew up in Florida, so Iím really big on jean short cut-offs. Iím also a big fan of either the super-loungy boyfriend supersized jeans or a great pair of skinnies. A lot of times with me, [jeans] fit at the waist but not necessarily on the lower part of my body because I tend to be more narrow. Itís honestly worth investing in your favorite two pairs and getting them tailored to fit to your body. White jeans are unforgiving and any pastel-colored jean is extremely unforgiving." Very wise words, AG!
Ashley Greene seen on Mar 10 2011 in Los Angeles, CA. Photographed in Los Angeles on March 10, Ashley Greene was snapped making a healthy stop at Whole Foods Market while rocking a double denim ensemble as she picked up her groceries. Starting with Kate Spade's skinny jeans (like James Jeans' Twiggy in W Troy 2), Ashley donned a lighter wash denim shirt along with a pair of black ballet flats and oversized sunglasses for her 'fit. For those of you who aren't ready to give headfirst into the double denim pool, try pairing either Joe's Jeans' Sexy Single Shirt in Blue/White or Soul Revival's Sexy Cross Stitch Shirt in White with a pair of dark wash skinnies. Boy, those shirts aren't shy about declaring just how "sexy" they are - ha! Accessory wise, all you'll need is a great leather bag, like Julie K Handbags' Robin in Cognac, and you'll be set. If you haven't heard, Greene and the rest of the cast and crew of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn were recently evacuated from Vancouver Island - where they were filming - due to a tsunami warning stemming from the tragic earthquake in Japan. Ashley was asked about her thoughts on the tragedy, and the current status of filming, and replied: "Everything kind of got turned upside down and inside out. We got the least of the brunt of things. We have to be thankful for that. But really, itís more about that we had to pick up and move to a different location and switch scenes around, but we are certainly moving forward and carrying on. Itís not really going to affect the film too harshly." She continued, "Iíve certainly voiced my opinion ó as have a lot of my other friends ó about raising money for Japan and being with them and praying for them, because I think itís something unpredictable and horrible and unexpected and really unfortunate and heartbreaking. I certainly send out my prayers and my thoughts to the people and to their loved ones and lost ones. And hopefully, we as Americans are going to do everything we can to help them rebuild." Thoughts, readers?
Ashley Greene seen on Feb 24 2011 in West Hollywood, CA. Lovebirds Ashley Greene and Joe Jonas were spotted going for a romantic stroll in West Hollywood on February 24, and couldn't help but smirk as the photogs snapped away. Always the stylish couple, Ashley started with a pair of AG's 22 Years Destroyed Jeans (like Denim of Virtue's Patience 5 Pocket Straight Leg in Rocker Blue) and then wore a plain white tank (try Splendid's Layers Spaghetti Strap in White) under a chambray shirt (similar to Frank & Eileen's Barry in Blue Linen) that she unbuttoned and tied at the bottom, and then slipped into a pair of grey suede boots. The final touches to AG's 'fit were a pair of Ray-Ban aviator sunglasses and a cross body shoulder bag, like Julie K Handbags' Renee Flap Shoulder Bag in Black. Moving on to Joe, he paired his distressed Closed jeans (try AG Jeans' Geffen in 5 Years Dark) with a graphic tee (take your pick between Kinetix's 1976 American Tee in Bone and Jim Marshall's Monterey Pop Tee in Ivory) and a grey jacket (similar to Jeremiah's Jacket Shirt in Black). Thoughts on their overall look, everyone? It seems that the young couple shows no signs of slowing down when it comes to their relationship, as they were recently spotted in Las Vegas celebrating Ashley's 24th birthday. Joe ended up buying vintage bling for Ashley, who said: "I just got the charm bracelet I'm wearing. It's vintage Chanel and the funny thing about it is when I got it, my boyfriend said its vintage Coach. It was very cute and sweet and adorable to me, because my boyfriend gave it to me. Coach, Chanel makes no difference to him ó but to me this is amazing!" Very sweet of Joe... but maybe next time, find out a little more about the gift you're getting your girl. That is, if Joe was the one who actually got this for her, versus an assistant of his!
Ashley Greene seen on Nov 26 2010 in Hollywood, CA. Stepping out for a date with boyfriend Joe Jonas and his mom, "Twilight" star Ashley Greene was photographed heading into Eva Longoria's Mexican eatery Beso in Hollywood on November 26. For her cool and casual ensemble, Ashley started with Rails' Devyn Shirt in Navy/Pink (What Goes Around Comes Around's Catherina Shirt in Purple is also similar) that she paired with leather leggings (get the look with Shirimiri's PVC Legging in Black) and a pair of over-the-knee boots that totally could have come from Julia Robert's wardrobe in Pretty Woman. From there, Ashley accessorized with a simple black clutch (check out Julia K Handbags' Sasha in Black for something with a bit of edge), a pair of stud earrings and a simple ring on her left hand. What are your thoughts on AG's look here readers - is this something you'd wear for a dinner date with your boo and his mom? Since Joe's mother was in attendance, I would have recommended that Ash leave the hooker boots at home, but that's just me! Readers, weigh in with your comments. For those of you who traveled recently for the Thanksgiving holiday, you know how crazy the airports are during this time of year. Well, when Joe and Ashley were recently boarding a flight out of Abu Dhabi, it seems that they experience a bit of drama involving knives! A source says, "Joe was stopped by security who were suspicious of something in his carry-on luggage. Turns out the squeaky clean pop-star had placed a set of knifes he'd purchased into his carry-on bag, instead of his checked luggage. His response to the mistake? 'Whoopsies.'" Ummm, is he serious? Come on Joe, figure it out!
Ashley Greene seen on Oct 13 2010 in Hollywood, CA. Stepping out for a romantic dinner with her new boo, Ashley Greene and Joe Jonas were photographed heading into Katsuya in Hollywood on October 13 to get their sushi on. For her date night ensemble, Ashley chose a pair of ultra skinny jeans (similar to James Jeans' Twiggy in DST Blue or Work Custom Jeans' Viper Skinny in Tokyo) along with a loose grey tank (check out C&C California's Racerback Twist Tank in Faded Black) and a matching slate grey tote bag. From there, Ashley added on a pair of black pumps and an eclectic necklace (take a peek at Robyn Rhodes' Starr in Silver for something similar) to finish off her look. Are you into what Ashley picked to wear for her dinner out with Joe, or do you think it's a bit too casual? Let me know in the comments. Wonder what happened on this date of Ashley and Joe's? Well, People Magazine is claiming that "the new couple grabbed a private table hidden behind curtains, but that didn't stop fellow diners from spotting them." A source spoke to the mag about their steamy night, saying: "If Ashley sat any closer to Joe, she would have been in his lap. The pair did enjoy a bunch of dishes, including yellowtail with jalepeŮo, all washed down with sake." Sounds like a perfect date!
