Divergent Star Shailene Woodley Is Our Style Icon of the Week


Remember when Shailene Woodley played the original Kaitlin Cooper on The O.C. (and her pony had alopecia)? Then, while starring on the ABC Family teen-mom show The Secret Life of an American Teenager, she totally blew it out of the water with a Golden Globe-nominated role in The Descendants. Now, the world is waiting with bated breath to see if she can topple the Hunger Games‘ reign on the YA genre with Divergent, opening this Friday. And along the way, Shailene has come into her own on a fashion level—skillfully trying out edgy new designers while stunning in the classics. Thereby, we must honor the talented 22-year-old with the Glamour Style Icon of the Week award. Let’s take a look:



In 2011, in support of The Descendants, a baby-faced Shailene posed on the Governors Awards red carpet in this youthfully pretty fit-and-flare cocktail dress by Katherine Kidd.


While working the awards circuit in 2012, the nominee wowed in an ethereal silvery-gray Marchesa gown at the Golden Globes.


Shailene played with color and embellishments in this Christopher Kane column gown at the Met Gala in 2012.


On the promo tour for her critically acclaimed role in The Spectacular Now, Shailene wore this creamy crop top and midiskirt outfit by Apiece Apart, along with strappy Jimmy Choo heels.


Shailene loves herself a chic crop top and skirt pairing—here she is that summer in a Proenza Schouler set.


It’s like a rite of passage for young starlets to chop off their glorious long hair, right? Last year, Shailene cut hers into a pixie for her role in the teen cancer tearjerker Fault in Our Stars. Here she is showing off her new coif in a shimmery Calvin Klein minidress at the Gotham Awards.


While Shailene does tend to prefer black, white, and gray, she tried out the pastel trend in a brocade minidress by Jonathan Saunders at an Oscars luncheon.


Fittingly, to promote her role as the kickass Beatrice “Tris” Prior in Divergent, she opted for an edgy, futuristic outfit—all by Alexander McQueen.
