Ashley Madekwe 'should model'

Ashley Madekwe's stylist thinks the actress should be on the runway rather than sitting front row.

The gorgeous actress is best known for her role on TV drama Revenge, which also stars Emily VanCamp.

She's often the talk of the red carpet, thanks to her natural good looks and amazing outfit choices, which she pulls together with the help of Joey Tierney.

During New York Fashion Week's Spring/Summer 14 shows, Ashley was spotted front row at the Cushnie Et Ochs show, but Joey thinks the star should have been on the runway.

"I've said it before and I'll say it again - I swear Ashley was a supermodel in her past life," she gushed to

For the occasion, 32-year-old Ashley wore a crimson dress with cut-out detail and a black leather jacket, and her stylist talked fans through the look.

"This red Cushnie Et Ochs cut-out pencil dress was absolutely stunning and the Saint Laurent sandals are perfection! Definitely a staple you should invest in," Joey told the website.

The actress' latest big red carpet appearance was at the Golden Globes InStyle after-party in January.

For the occasion she wore a bright, block-colour maxi gown and carried a cute yellow clutch.

"The Josef Albers-inspired Roksanda Ilincic Spring 2014 strapless gown that Ashley wore to the InStyle Golden Globe party was a modern departure from expected sequin and heavily beaded dresses," Joey explained.

"We paired the colour-blocked gown with an Alexander McQueen yellow python clutch and bronze Saint Laurent sandals."

When she's not at a big event, the star prefers to keep things simple.

"One of my favourite things are basics with details that makes them luxurious," she previously revealed.

“A sweatshirt with leather sleeves is all me. This would be a great everyday piece with skinny jeans, flats, or sneakers. You could definitely wear this in the evening as well. Stripes are also a great basic for pulling an outfit together and are great with a red lip - very French.”
