Ashley Madekwe: Mossy is the coolest

Ashley Madekwe thinks no one could look as cool as Kate Moss at an airport.

Style blog WhoWhatWear's Twitter page posted a picture of the British supermodel hitting the airport in a black blazer, black skinny jeans, coloured scarf and retro sunglasses, asking "Has anyone looked cooler at the airport ever? (sic)"

The Revenge star retweeted the image enthusiastically adding: "Never."

But Kate, 41, isn't the only one with impressive style credentials - 31-year-old Ashley impressed Reebok so much that she was picked as the face of the sports brand's collaboration with FACE Stockholm cosmetics.

While many girls covet Ashley's fashion sense and follow her blog Ring My Bell religiously, the star thinks her wardrobe is pretty limited.

“I really do shy away from colour, I mean you wouldn’t think that from my blog but it challenges me to try new things," she admitted to when asked about her signature style.

“Maybe it is [more classic], but there’s lots of leather in it as well. I’d say my signature style is pretty laidback but with a great pair of heels. I wore denim Levi 501 vintage shorts to dinner the other night and I thought oh this is kind of inappropriate, I mean you shouldn’t wear your denim hotpants to dinner but it kind of feels fine in LA.”

And moving to Los Angeles hasn't just influenced the UK actress' fashion sense - she's also changed her fitness regime to fit in with the natives.

"Well I'm based in LA and I try to go hiking a lot. I can go with a girlfriend and we can talk and kind of trick ourselves into thinking you're doing something fitness-related for the day!" she laughed.
