I’ve added 3 gorgeous outtakes of Shailene’s ASOS cover shoot from a couple months back. Hopefully there will be much more to come from this session, it’s definitely one of my favorites.

I’ve uploaded over 700 Blu-ray quality screen captures of Shailene from her breakthrough role in The Descendants to the gallery. She was so fantastic in her role, as were the entire cast. I really cannot wait to see her in more movies.
Thanks to the lovely DeAdele I’ve added scans from Shailene’s feature in the August issue of Teen Vogue to the gallery.
“Fashion is instant language”—so states its reigning royal highness, Miuccia Prada. If this is true, starlet Shailene Woodley proved her style fluency during her recent meteoric rise from star of ABC Family’s The Secret Life of the American Teenager to bona fide film actress in The Descendants, hitting the red carpet in coveted labels like Valentino, Proenza Schouler, and Marchesa.
So it’s surprising to find that Shailene, whom I styled in 2009 for the Teen Vogue Young Hollywood party (in a green See by Chloë number), feels at home in more relaxed fare. “I wish the boundaries between being an actor and being a fashionista were more distinct. I started acting because I love the art of it, not because I wanted to dress in fancy clothes,” explains the California native. “I have fun playing dress-up every now and then, but when it comes down to it, put me in a long skirt and a loose cotton shirt and I’m the happiest camper alive.”
But her fondness for relaxed duds doesn’t lessen her sartorial point of view. “My fashion vocabulary has expanded over the past few months, and I don’t allow anyone to pressure me into wearing something that doesn’t properly represent who I am as a person,” she says.
So when trailblazing designer Christopher Kane offered to make Shailene a custom gown—of metal, wires, and leather—for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s gala opening of “Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations,” it seemed like a match made in heaven. “Shailene really loved the chain-mail pieces in my recent fall collection and wanted a version for herself,” says Kane. “She is talented and beautiful and has a strong personality. The strength and power of the chain-mail and leather details matched her confidence.”
