Ashley Madekwe’s Dark and Young Style
Actress Ashley Madekwe is one of the stars of the ABC hit drama Revenge and has been in dozens of other TV series and films, and onscreen or off, she always knows how to play up her dark and exotic features and how to keep her style young and fun. Ashley changes her look often so that she never looks dull and boring, and mixes up her style for every occasion and for every time she steps out.
Her long dark chestnut hair is one of Ashley’s trademarks, and often she wears it in a deep side part, curled and over one shoulder. The look is glamorous but still slight casual and a great choice for her age, and for going out. On other occasions Ashley might wear it pin-straight and parted down the middle which gives her a sleek look and style.
For everyday, casual styles, she may also give it a bit of curl at the ends so it has body and bounce. You can copy Ashley’s style by mixing up your own hairstyle when going out; add some curl for body, or give it a deep side part for glamour. Never wear it the same way twice and it will always look great!
Having fun with her look when on the red carpet is also part of Ashley’s style. During a recent appearance for The Trevor Project, Ashley wore a sleek grey jersey knit gown with a square neckline in a bib style, with wide cutouts at the arms. The form-fitting gown perfectly accented her fit physique and was a great choice for the event. The slate grey color made her a standout in a sea of little black dresses, and the square neckline was very unique. This kept her look young and vibrant but still appropriate for the occasion.
One style choice that is often seen on Ashley and which is a great option for her is a colorful pleated short skirt. The pleats add movement and visual interest and the print keeps it young and fun. A shorter skirt is a perfect choice for someone of Ashley’s age and it’s easy to pair it with just about anything, including a silky fitted tee, a silk blouse with a tie, or even a graphic t-shirt when you want to mix up your look.
Because Ashley has such dark olive skin, a little bit of lip color is typically all she needs. She is often seen with just a bit of color on her cheeks and eyes, and never goes out with heavy makeup that detracts from her face. This too is part of Ashley’s great style, as it keeps her looking young and fresh and a great look that anyone can imitate.
