Win Ashley Greene's Dress from DonateMyDress.org Home Home

Ashley Greene may always look flawless on the red carpet but she knows the importance of feeling beautiful on prom night and the pressure of finding the perfect dress on a budget. She told us that working with DonateMyDress.org hits home because, “I grew up with limited funds, so when I saved enough to buy my prom dress, it was such a highlight in my teenage life. I went to my high school sweetheart’s senior prom and had a blast. I felt truly beautiful. It’s unrealistic to expect to feel that way all the time, but if there is ever a time to feel perfect, it’s prom.”

Ashley gave more details on her dress during a special Twitterview and told @PerulovTwilight what she wore to prom: “A fitted, floor-length tan dress that was beaded. I knew it was the perfect dress the second I saw it!” And it’s no surprise that she plays Alice Cullen in Twilight because like her character, Ashley loves to help her friends get dressed up for special occasions. She told @batonrougue29 that her favorite part of Twilight: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 is “when Alice is planning the wedding with Bella. I love to plan parties and I collaborated on my dress!”

But, prom isn’t the only night of the year that Ashley wants you to feel beautiful and confident on the inside and out. She told @ashleygrox her advice for boosting self-esteem is to “Write down what you love about yourself and surround yourself with people who love you for who you are.” Ashley’s mom has been one of the most inspirational people in her life. Ashley even told @VintageVampyre that she “always made me feel loved and beautiful no matter what.”

Today, Ashley donates her designer dresses she’s known for on the red carpet to Donate My Dress and encourages girls to do the same with their prom or other formal wear once the big night is over. “My dresses all hold sentimental value,” Ashley tells us. “But if donating my dresses can give someone else the same feeling I once had, it’s completely worth it.”
