Celebrity Color Crush~ Orange

Celebrities are brightening up events, and the red carpet, with deliciously sweet citrus hues of orange this summer. Tangerine, coral and varying shades of orange have made appearances this season thanks to the color of the year: Tangerine Tango.

Last month, Marion Cotillard was spotted on the red carpet wearing a lovely and sophisticated Christian Dior Couture ensemble featuring an orange bustier at the Dark Knight Rises premiere in London. The color was not lost on accessories either, Jessica Chastain added a pair of orange Barbara Bui sling backs to her electric green Karen Caldwell sheath earlier this year.

 

 

 

 

Leslie Mann sported a fit and flare, orange Monique Lhuillier dress for the Los Angeles premiere of ParaNorman paired with nude Givenchy heels.

Ashley Greene Covers Nylon's August 2012 Issue

Ashley Greene is a two time cover girl in the month of August. Not only is the Twilight star featured on the cover of Cosmopolitan, but she also shines on the cover of Nylon magazine next month. The brunette beauty is featured on the magazine's denim issue cover looking causal chic wearing a black Moschino vintage blazer, A What Goes Around Comes Around tee and bandana paired with Element cut-off shorts and Dsquared2 shoes. The 25-year-old dishes on dating and the tabloids, her past modeling days and her instant fame thanks to Twilight.

Ashley on dating and the tabloids: “Imagine going out with a girl one night, then the next day she’s like, ‘We’re hooking up! This is serious!  It’s this overload of someone saying, ‘This is what this is, even though we’ve only been on one date and I don’t even know your middle name.’ Everything has a title immediately.”

Ashley on her modeling days before becoming the face of DKNY: “I knew I was never going to be a supermodel. I mean, I’m 5'5"—it’s not going to happen unless you’re Kate Moss, which I’m not. And until you hit a certain level in the modeling world, it’s really rough: You’re never tall enough, you’re never thin enough, there’s always another girl. It just wasn’t for me anymore.”

Ashley on her instant Twilight fame: “Right when I was cast, my IMDb STARmeter [a chart that tracks actors based on how many searches are done on them] went through the roof—all of ours did, and we hadn’t even done anything yet! Now I have to remind myself that not everything is always going to be like that.”

Ashley Greene Covers Cosmopolitan's August 2012 Issue

Ashley Greene is featured on the cover of Cosmopolitan's August 2012 issue wearing a floral print, Minkpink bustier and light pink Rich & Skinny jeans. Inside, the Twilight star talks about her career, avoiding the Hollywood scene and all the craziness, but also marriage and love.

Ashley on her career: "I'm looking for things that are going to push boundaries. I want to work with directors I know get great performances and actors who force me to up my game," she says. "Hopefully, I'll be able to find that."

Ashley on getting married: “I’m not one of those girls who sits at home thinking, 'By 25, I have to be married.' Right now, I’m like I’m 25, I need to book my next movie! My parents have such a beautiful marriage. I’m not someone who takes it lightly. So I’m not going to get married until I know I’ll be with someone forever.”

Ashley on whether she has a type: "It's about chemistry and a connection. I've changed so much over the past 10 years. What I wanted when I was 16, I didn't want when I was 20, and that's changed to something else now that I'm 25. Having a type is not for me."

Ashley on the crazy Hollywood scene: "In this industry, it's easy to get sidetracked by the glitz. But there are certain precautions you can take. Look, if you go out to a club, you're going to be written about."
