Ashley Madekwe Does Top-To-Toe Tartan For Topshop Christmas Launch Party

Ashley Madekwe proved she's a total trailblazer when it comes to this season's biggest trend. We're talking tartan, we're talking head-to-toe, matchy-matchy style.

The Brit actress looked killer in a fabulous ensemble for the Topshop Holiday Celebration at The Grove this weekend in LA. Not only was she joined by Erin Wasson and Mandy Moore but there was also a special performance by Natalia Kills.


The red, black and navy colourways with a simple white stiletto, and a bright yellow clutch worked perfectly with Ashley's signature dark tresses. There's definite power in the plaid. And the stand-out red lipstick? Spot on.

The lady knows how to work the sartorial magic, in fact we've never seen her in an outfit that wasn't cool, chic AND super sexy. In that order.
