Seventeen met up with Twilight star Ashley Greene, who's just become the celebrity spokesperson for donatemydress.org, our sister site! Ashley helped Saks Fifth Avenue kick off a mega, nationwide dress drive. For the next two Saturdays, March 20 and 27, when you donate a dress, you receive a coupon for 20 percent off a new dress at any Saks store. A girl who can't afford a dress for prom will receive yours. Just as her character Alice Cullen helped Bella Swan get ready for prom, Ashley is now helping real girls like you get ready too! Check out more details on Ashley's dress and makeup below!
Ashley wore a long, flowy alice + olivia dress, which she later donated to the cause - it's being auctioned off on charityfolks.com/donatemydress to help local dress drive organizations. In the goddess dress flipbook on MyPromStyle.com, you can find prom dresses that are similar in style. You can also give a strapless maxi dress like Ashley's a colorful twist by looking for an ombré color pattern.
Chee Lee, a makeup artist from the Giorgio Armani Beauty counter at Saks, gave Ashley a natural bronzed look to match the earth tones of her dress. Chee used a rose shade of lipstick (#14), topped with lip shimmer, eye shadows that were sparkling sand- and brown-colored, black eye liner, and false lashes. If you want to splurge on any makeup, Chee recommends Armani's Luminous Silk Foundation ($58), which she also used on Ashley, because it has yellow, not pink, undertones, is lightweight, and blends perfectly. You can rely on drugstore brands for standards like eye shadow, mascara, liner, etc. for the rest.
