Ashley Greene attended the Avon Foundation For Women Global Voices For Change Gala in New York City last night.

My first reaction to her in this custom Donna Karan dress was, ‘This is more like it’.

Finally a spark, a genuine smile, some personality and some va va voom.

The electric-blue one-shoulder satin dress with a gathered detail at the hip also and also has a thigh-high split. It’s an amazing silhouette which shows off her figure to perfection.

Her hair was styled into loose pin curls to give an old Hollywood flavour, and she added a soft pink lip colour.

Kwiat vintage jewels and black accessories including Casadei pumps completed the look.

I would complain about the slightly uninspiring accessories, but she made such a huge effort in every other department that it would just be nit-picking on a much improved look.
