Ashley Greene - Ashley Greene: I'm Not A Fashion Icon

Ashley Greene doesn't consider herself to be a style icon.

The 25-year-old 'Twilight' actress - who is the face of DKNY and DKNY Jeans - admits she grew up in shorts and flip flops and doesn't see herself as much of a fashion guru.

She said: ''It's certainly something that I've read and people have voiced that they do consider me one of their fashion icons, and it's really flattering and I'm really thankful for it.

''But it's always interesting to me - growing up in Jacksonville, Florida, I never considered myself a fashion icon at all, or anything even close.''

But since hitting the Big Time, Ashley has been able to trade her beach wear for designer gowns and expensive jewellery - a luxury she fully appreciates.

She told People Magazine: ''It's really fun for me to be able to be exposed to the red carpet and the dresses and the clothing, and working with Donna [Karan], because it's broadened my horizons.

''And now other people are responding to the things I'm wearing, so it's fun for me, too.''

One of the highlights of her career so far has been seeing her Billboard in Times Square.

She explained: ''They tell you about it, but then you actually see it and your jaw kind of drops. I was like, 'Wow, I'm humungous'.

''I had my family come out for Christmas, and that's the first thing my mom wanted to do was see the billboard. She landed and was like, 'OK, let's go look!' It was a really huge moment.''
