Best known for her portrayal of Ashley Davenport on the scandalous series Revenge and her fashion blog Ring My Bell, Ashley Madekwe is on our radar in more ways than one. We met the actress and style blogger at the 7 For All Mankind store in Los Angeles, where she hosted a party in honor of the label’s new collaboration with Malhia Kent. Below, we ask the chic star about her favorite L.A. spots and the most-loved pair of jeans in her own closet.

Describe your perfect date?
"My husband and I are quite chill. I love little cafes. We love Korean BBQ too."
What's your favorite place to shop in L.A.?
"I love Decades. Sometimes I go in there just to be with the vintage! I can’t afford anything — I just want to sit with the vintage."
Where do you go for a little pampering?
"esNAIL! It's great if you want to spend a little bit more and get nail extensions or nail art."
Have you always been obsessed with denim?
"Yes! My denim collection is kind of insane. I always travel with like ten pairs — And it’s the heaviest thing to travel with!"
What's your favorite pair of jeans in your closet?
"My favorite pair just fell apart! They were from Topshop five years ago — a beautiful, ‘70s blue vintage wash, high-waisted, and a bright gold button. They were so good, but, literally, the crotch actually fell out.
