Following in the footsteps of Hilary Duff and Alexa Chung, Twilight's Ashley Greene is the latest star to rep DKNY Jeans, the label announced Wednesday. The 24-year-old will also serve as the brand-ambassador for DKNY.

"I've always loved Donna Karan's creations. To be a part of the brands' message is incredibly exciting because it feels like such an organic fit," Greene, 24, tells Us Weekly of her one-year contract with the clothier.

"It's easy to talk about how these clothes work for my lifestyle, whether I'm in New York, L.A. or traveling for work," Greene adds.

Says executive VP Patti Cohen: "Ashley embodies everything DKNY -- her energy, her spirit, her eclectic personal style. She is on the forefront of what it means to connect with a global fan base through social media, a focus that is aligned with our digital and new media initiatives."

Greene -- who's currently dating Broadway star Reeve Carney -- will appear in a global ad campaign for the Spring 2012 collection. The campaign will be photographed by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.
