When I heard that Shailene was wearing white, I believe I tweeted something along the lines of, “BORED NOW.” However! As anyone who reads us knows, I am completely fickle and this is no exception. I totally dig this:

I don’t know, there’s just something so refreshing about how modest and 60s it is, and yet there is nary an air of Sister Wife about it — which is hard when something’s so covered up. This dress makes Shailene Woodley — who is very good in The Descendents, and very bad on Secret Life — seem like a tremendously interesting person. She looks like someone who goes to Palm Springs to look at the cave paintings and has a house with a Warhol in the bathroom and has people over for cocktails on her deck, which are all made from weird herbs she grows on the thatching on her roof (she did tell Ryan she’s becoming an herbalist) and she’s always dating someone who doesn’t speak English and her parents have an entailed estate that they never talk about. Almost none of those things are actually true! The power of a dress.
