Twilight star Ashley Greene graces the cover of the August 2012 Denim Issue of Nylon Magazine. On the cover she is wearing a pair of denim shorts by Element with a Vintage Blazer by Moschino and a T-Shirt and Bandanna by What Goes Around Comes Around. During the 4 page spread within the magazine, Ashley posed in more denim! She wore a shirt and a pair of jeans by Denim & Dupply Ralph Lauren and some shorts from Topshop and Guess. I love the styling for this editorial! I’ve also included some highlights below from the interview.
On her past modeling days:
“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.”
On her instant Twilight stardom:
“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.”
On dating and the paparazzi:
“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.”

Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber hold hands as they make their way into a waiting car. The couple were in New Zealand together while Justin was preforming at a concert and they later stopped by a children’s hospital to visit the patients.
Selena wore a Topshop studded denim shirt over a smiley face tee and black jeans. I’m not sure what I think of this look entirely. I think it’d look a lot better if her tee didn’t have a graphic print on it and was just a plain colored shirt.

Since Summer has just arrived on our doorsteps, the denim jacket trend is in full swing. Celebs from Jessica Alba and Alessandra Ambrosio to Cameron Diaz and Katie Holmes have all been caught rocking their denim jackets and they have all chosen varied styles. Diana Agron opted for a white take on the trend while Demi Lovato toughened her look up with some spikes at the shoulders. Alessandra Ambrosio chose a cropped sleeve look while Keira Knightley picked a stone wash option. Mila Kunis, Katie Holmes, Jessica Alba and Cameron Diaz on the other hand, opted for the classic blues ranging from mid to dark.
I own quite a few denim jackets myself and I wear them as frequently as I can. The best thing about them is their versatility. You can pair them with your jeans as long as you pick a different colour denim, so you don’t have to sacrifice your love for jeans at all. If you do want to switch it up however, you can easily throw one over a floral dress in the day time or team it with a pair of printed or coloured pants. The denim jacket is a basic essential that is always a must have in my opinion.
Below I have chosen 18 denim jackets, all in a variety and variation so there is something for everyone. I have selected 6 premium denim styles from the likes of J Brand, Rag & Bone etc, but I’ve also chosen 6 more affordable options from stores like Topshop, Mango and more and to make things more bold I have chosen 6 fun denim jackets in neons, prints and colours from brands like Current/Elliott, Textile Elizabeth and James, Topshop and others!

Demi Lovato performed live in Central Park as part of Good Morning America’s Summer Concert Series in New York City a few days ago.
Demi wore a light wash Topshop denim jacket with studs and spikes embellished on the shoulders over a black dress. I really like the studs and spikes trend a lot, it’s one of my favourites, but I can’t say I’m a big fan of this outfit. I do like her hair though!
