Shailene Woodley in ASOS: 'People Didn’t Like My Valentino Oscars Dress'

2 May 2012

If staring alongside Hollywood hunk George Clooney wasn’t enough to grab our attention, Shailene Woodley has certainly got Grazia HQ style crushing! At just 20 years old, the Descendants star has quickly got the world talking, but topped with her carefree style, are you surprised?

And now we have Shailene’s cover shoot for ASOS to get us lusting for a new summer wardrobe. Who else can look so elegant whilst posing on a pair of pink rollerblades? Not us, that’s for sure. Wearing the most adorable knicker shorts with an ASOS denim shirt, Shailene works her California tan with a pair of cat eye sunnies.

Shailene Woodley in Valentino Couture at the Oscar Awards

But Shailene’s sartorial choices haven’t always been well received. Remember the night of the Oscar Awards? The American actress looked elegant in a white Valentino Couture dress, however, she explains: "a lot of people didn’t like it. They were like, ‘she’s 20, she’s covering herself up, why is she doing that?”. Well, we loved it.

We also love that Shailene sources most of her clothes through friends. “This cardigan is two years old and these jeans are my friend’s boyfriends,” she tells ASOS. She might have a fair more fashion choices that most 20 year olds, but there's nothing flashing about this one.

What's more, she doesn’t pay attention to fame and fortune. “There are more options coming in for me [since The Descendants], but really that doesn’t affect me, because I will never do a movie I’m not passionate about." Isn't she down-to-earth! "I’d rather be in a two-minute scene in a phenomenal Meryl Streep movie than the lead of an action-hero film”. So would we, Wooders!

So we can but urge you to get more of Shailene and her refreshing style at
