Shailene Woodley is a brilliant actress. She is also a true unique. I believe it was co-star Miles Teller who joked that he was 90 percent sure she lived in a tree. He was probably right. She's an all-natural lady, who takes a hippy-dippy approach to fashion. This was never more clear than when she stepped out for the premiere of her new flick, Divergent.
Shailene wore a long, one-sleeved, crepe gold gown to walk the red carpet. Nothing says star on the rise like gold. Unfortunately the rest of the look isn't adding to her celebrity status. If anything it's giving me serious concerns that she maybe tripped in her hotel and became entangled in the curtains. As luxe as I'm sure her hotel might be, it is never okay to wear curtains. Unless you are a Von Trapp child or Scarlett O'Hara. Naturally.
I'm not saying Shailene doesn't look beautiful -- because she absolutely does. Her new shorter hair totally suits her, and her body is, in a word, slammin'. Plus, look at the killer glow! She is so happy to be there, and that's awesome. I want to hang out with her. I want to hang out with her more than I do Jennifer Lawrence and that is saying something. But I'm not loving this dress.
The draped feel could work if it wasn't paired with that sloppy, oversized solo sleeve. Instead of seeming Greek-inspired, it just looks like she was a wizard who lost a fight with a fashion-hungry dragon who took one of her sleeves to teach her lesson. Don't get me started on the leg slit. There is a classy amount of leg and then there is a sunbathing your vagina amount of leg. I think we know where Shailene falls on that one.
Do you think the look works for her?
