Ashley Madekwe seen on Jun 19 2013 in West Hollywood, CA. Ashley Madekwe was seen attending the Elizabeth and James Fall 2013 Handbag Collection that was hosted by InStyle and held at the Chateau Marmont on June 19. For her partytime outfit, Ashley opted for a metallic, printed Elizabeth and James top (for a similar look, try Lavender Brown's Printed Top in Blue, or for a cropped option that comes in a lovely neutral, check out Mumu's Crochet Cap Top in Rose) with distressed Paige Premium Denim jeans (James Jeans' Neo Blue Slouchy Fit Boyfriend in Wimbledon are similar) and a pair of strappy Jimmy Choo heels. Several stacked bangles and an Elizabeth and James clutch (for a similar color, check out Primary's Solid Python Clutch in Aqua) added the finishing touches to her stylish ensemble. What's your take on this look, readers - is it something you would wear to a cocktail party? In other Ashley news, it was recently announced that her character on the hit show "Revenge," Ashley Davenport, will not be returning to the show for its third season. According to Deadline: "Ashley Davenport is done scheming on ABC‘s Revenge. I’ve learned that British actress Ashley Madekwe will not return to the soapy drama next season. Her option was not picked up due to what I hear were storyline reasons. Madekwe has been on Revenge since the pilot, but her character went through metamorphoses. By the end of Season 1, Ashley’s storyline played out, but the producers found a way to bring her back." Ashley seems to be taking the loss in stride, as she recently tweeted: "My preference is that Ashley Davenport dies in a blaze of glory. Preferable whilst wearing Valentino couture….Or Chanel. I’m not fussy." It's good to see she has a sense of humor about it!
Ashley Madekwe seen on Apr 20 2013 in Los Angeles, CA. "Revenge" star Ashley Madekwe was photographed at the show's season two wrap party, which was held at Pink Taco in LA on April 20. For her wrap party ensemble, she paired black shorts (for a thrashed denim option, check out One Teaspoon's Trashwhores Short in Cartini, or for a more basic one, try Hard Tail's Grommet Sport Shorts in Black) with a short sleeved white top (like Splendid's Sleeveless Crew Tee in Paper), and then wore a strappy pair of black sandals with a midnight blue Chanel purse and a bright red lip. A few delicate pieces of jewelry, such as a few bangles and dainty rings (like Nolan Jewelry's Petal Wrap Ring in Gold) provided the final touches to her nighttime outfit. Are you into AM's look for the occasion, readers? In other Ashley news, the British actress recently tweeted her surprise at the season two finale, in which a main character will allegedly bite the dust. Her tweet read: "Last table read of season 2…. Ep 22 had us all crying! #revenge.”" According to Examiner, "This is reportedly going to be a real death, not a phony like they did with Victoria Grayson at the end of season 1.That makes Ashley’s response even more intriguing. There are very few people on the show who are “safe.” Naturally Emily is safe as the show centers on her getting revenge for ruining her life and her father’s. It is unlikely that they would kill of Victoria. First of all, they faked her death last season and that would just seem lame. Secondly, she is a character we love to hate and an integral part of the show. Jack is probably safe since we just lost Amanda earlier in the season. Besides, who would take care of baby Carl? Daniel is too important to Emily’s plans. Ashley’s clue about everyone crying probably means it isn’t Conrad either. That leaves Nolan, Charlotte, Aidan, Declan or Ashley herself that might bring tears to the eyes." Who would you bet is the one who won't make it to season three?
Ashley Madekwe seen on Feb 28 2013 in West Hollywood, CA. "Revenge" star Ashley Madekwe was photographed on the red carpet of Bravo's new reality show "Dukes of Melrose" on February 28, which was held at the Sunset Tower in West Hollywood. The show chronicles the vintage couture resale shop Decades and its eccentric owners Cameron Silver and Christos Garkinos. For her premiere party outfit, Ashley wore a simple black Three Floor Flare dress, along with Saint Laurent Paris strappy sandals and Sethi Couture hoop earrings. To get a look inspired by AM's here, take a look at Bailey 44's Done Dress in Black, or for a longer silhouette, check out TYSA's Loren Dress in Black. From there, accessorize with Avanessi's Knot Hoops in White Gold and Lafonn's Canary Silver Bonded with Platinum Ring. For the finishing touches, grab a beaded black clutch, similar to the Jimmy Choo one that Ashley toted to the soiree. Thoughts on her look here, everyone? In other Madekwe news, the pretty actress and fashion blogger recently appeared on "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson," and chatted about "Revenge." Ashley said: "People like it. I love it, I like doing it, and I get to give moody looks and things like that. It's very serious." Ha! Craig then asked her if it's difficult to keep up with all of the plot twists, to which she responded: "You forget! You forget the plot! I'm lucky there's someone there whose job it is to keep control of that, and remind us. 'No, you're not sleeping with him this week,' that kind of thing." With the number of twists and turns the show has on a weekly basis, I can see how it would be hard to keep up for the cast members!
Ashley Madekwe seen on Oct 10 2012 in Los Angeles, CA. Ashley Madekwe was snapped heading into the Madonna "MDNA Tour" concert which was held at Staples Center in LA on October 10, donning yet another oh-so-stylish look - she is an actress slash style blogger, after all! For her concert outfit, Ashley paired a zigzag striped blouse (for two similar options, try Splendid's classic Stripe Buttondown Long Sleeve in Swan or Zoa's funkier Etch Print Blouse in Black) with blue short shorts (try Krisa's Overlap Short in Prelude) and a pair of black Zara boots (Sam Edelman's Petty Solid in Black are equally as cool). Her casual hands-in-pockets pose also adds to Ashley's cool factor, wouldn't you say? The day after the concert, Ashley took to her Instagram and posted a shot of her and a friend posing and "vogue-ing" as Madonna performed this legendary track, saying: "Getting our Vogue on at the Madonna concert last night." Also spotted at the show? Jessica Alba and celebrity stylist Brad Goreski. Sounds like a fun, star-studded night of music with the Queen of Pop!

From there, AM wore a pair of pretty drop earrings (like Satya Jewelry's Full Circle Earrings in Amethyst) and finished off her look with her sparkling wedding ring. Are you into Ashley's outfit here, everyone? If you were her, would you have chosen a pair of shoes in a color that so closely resembled that of the dress? In other news, Ashley recently spoke out about the Kate Middleton nude photo scandal, and the fellow Brit said: "I think it’s an invasion of her privacy. hey’re her boobies and she was in a private estate so... that’s a little too much. I’m English, and we respect the royalty. I just don’t think it should be done." Ashley went on to discuss the upcoming season of "Revenge," and said: "I love doing 'Revenge' and it’s really nice that we have our second season. We have new characters this season, so that’s really cool for us to have new characters to interact with because we’re sick of each other right now," she joked. "It feels good to work!" Are any of you excited for the second season?

The English beauty then opted for a delicate silver necklace, fringed silver earrings (get the look with Femme Metale Jewelry's Tassel Chain Earrings in Silver), a bright pink watch, and an armful of bangles when it came to her jewelry. She polished off her Neon Carnival outfit with a red shoulder bag (try Julie K Handbags' Nora in Red Cobra) and a complementary red lip. What are your thoughts on AM's outfit here, everyone? I'd say it's definitely appropriate for the event, and I love those boots!

We always knew that we were going to get the character Tyler on set and we heard he was going to be shady but we didn't know how shady he'd be. I don't want to ruin it for you but I'll tell you — how far it goes in the season with the relationship — the secret might have to come out eventually." Very intriguing! Are any of you fans of the addictive show?
