Say what you will about her clothes, but her head looked FANTASTIC this weekend.

Fug or Fab: Shailene Woodley in Valentino


I find the art of styling to be fascinating. Shailene works with Ilaria Urbinati — one of the best — and I feel like you can see a visual story at work if you look at what she’s wore for the Snowden events so far. For example, this dress feels related to the dress she wore here, a couple of days ago.

'Snowden' Premiere - 64th San Sebastian Film Festival

Same designer, but different styling, and totally different vibe — and you can definitely see connective tissue between them. That, to me, is fascinating, and why I think the art of clothing a celebrity is so interesting. Clothes say something — sometimes they say “I just don’t give a shit,” although that’s not the case here; sometimes they say, “this event is not about my outfit,” and that’s okay too — and trying to interpret what they’re saying about a celebrity on something like a press junket is endless compelling, to me. What’s being sold to us? It’s not always only just a movie — a lot of times, it’s also that celebrity’s ideal image, their positioning in the public eye. Which is, of course, why Kate Middleton doesn’t dress like Gwen Stefani and vice versa. On this Snowden press tour, I feel like Shailene is trying to look more serious — which is smart, given the movie’s subject matter and the fact that she’s transitioning out of teen roles and into adult ones. Yesterday, that Valentino felt a little TOO serious for her. But this feels like good marriage of person and professional goal — or, at least, what I imagine her professional goal to be. Do I LOVE it beyond all comprehension? Not really. It needs a little hoik and I ALWAYS think the Wet Hair look is impossible to pull off if you’re not on the runway (as much as I wish I could trot outside with wet hair and have it look really fashionable).  But I think I get where she’s trying to go.

Recent Fugs or Fabs: Shailene Woodley


We got an email first thing this morning from a photo service that was like BAD FASHION ALERT: SHAILENE WOODLEY! and I opened it on my phone while I was putting a serum on my face, pre-coffee, and thought to myself, blearily, “Oh, no, Shailene. What did you do?” So when the photo finally loaded, my reaction was basically, “Eh, that’s not so bad!” But it’s possible I had been overpromised and under-delivered to, so please set me straight.

I assume she’ll get a break from Snowden press during the Emmys. Sleep in, Shailene. Take it while you can.

Well Played: Shailene Woodley in Prabal Gurung


Ages ago I wrote a Shailene Woodley post in which I called her Mama Shailene, due to whatever vibe she was giving out, and since then I have only ever been able to call her Mama Shai. That may have to change, though, because Mama Shai is more of an Earth Mother type who digs up crystals and only cooks on hot rocks and does actual ant farming, and this Shailene is kind of a bombshell:

While my jury usually returns a guilty verdict for bra-style bodices, this one — even if it runneth over a very little bit — looks extremely fetching on her. It’s balanced by the beautiful color and button details, and of course those tremendous earrings. In Toronto she went with very youthful stuff, to mixed effect for me (though I liked the ideas), and this ups the stakes with a little sophistication. I still think she is Mama Shai, and also playful Shai, but how fun to be reminded just how many multitudes she contains.

Fugs and Fabs: Shailene Woodley at the Toronto Film Festival


Shailene Woodley is in Toronto promoting Snowden and telling people that she’s not sure she’s doing the next Divergent movie now that it’s going to be on TV (no matter what her IMDb page says) and wearing interesting things, thank god.
