    I had that outfit in 1998.

    • Deb_Lynn

      Mine was pink.

    • Danielle

      Hear, hear. I am SO tired of picking up a cute shirt in a store, only to find it’s missing half the bottom.

    • Lauren Lynch Fox

      and I think I bought it on the board walk….

  • SophiaPehawkins

    I like the skirt a lot. I’m just over midriff baring tops.

  • Her makeup is gorgeous! And I like the new short hair. The top feels too….athletic?…to be with the beaded Native American Flapper skirt. At least it’s venue appropriate.

    • Sobaika

      I think the athleticism/skin of the outfit is intentional, given her new role in Divergent.

    • Louise Bryan

      Venue and weather appropriate. It just doesn’t look balanced, though; she looks a bit top-heavy.

    • The hair is for “The Fault In Our Stars.”

  • Karen Belgrad

    Awwww… she’s wearing Lily Collin’s hand-me-down shirts.

  • save_the_hobbit

    So…for some reason I love that skirt. But definitely not with that top.

  • silly little thumb

    She has a great body but this outfit done a trillion times. Lily Collins and Jennifer Lawrence would have worn the exact same thing.

  • Paigealicious

    Is it weird that I like the sandals on the model?

    • Nancer

      I like them too. I think that Shailene needed footwear with an edge to make this work. And the belt would have helped….

      • Rhonda Shore

        Yup on the footwear! I like it though…

    • kimmeister

      Yikes, I find them abominable.

  • Diego!

    I like the skirt, but I wish she had kept the belt… It’s looks so so without it 🙁

    • Chipster

      So funny…. I just posted the same thing!

  • teensmom99

    Somehow this works for the VMAs–it gives her an undrestated (for VMAs) California girl vibe. And those legs!!!

    • bingo

      wow, her legs are toned and proportionate and glorious.

      • kimmeister

        They are to die for. I’m too busy admiring them to worry about the outfit!

        • NC_Meg

          Me too. I actually like the whole outfit but her legs! The girl’s got a great body.

  • Katesymae

    I like this… but only because it’s the first time in FOREVER Shailene looked put together for a public outing.

  • bellafigura1

    Stunning. Big WERQ for me.

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    Great skirt … the top is lacking.

  • Chipster

    I think she should have worn the black belt. It would make the outfit more cohesive instead of looking like two random items.

    • Sarah

      Yeah, without the belt (and shoes) on the model, the pieces just don’t go. It *is* possible to mix and match, regardless of the conception of the designer…

    • marlie

      It’s like she was trying to find something to go with the skirt, and she said “black goes with everything, right?”

  • Latin Buddy

    I feel bad. When I see her, I immediately think “she’s the poor man’s Jennifer Lawrence. From the B-rate movie about a dystopian world to a B-rate ‘girl next door.’

  • Jacquelyn

    The top leaves a little something to be desired, but the skirt is awesome.

  • filmcricket

    Wish she’d done something different with her head. I hate that lipstick (or lack thereof), she looks washed-out in general, and if you’re going to cut your hair short, why would you then slick it back so it looks like it’s in a ponytail? Do something fun!

    Outfit’s fine, especially for a non-performer at the VMAs. She’s in amazing shape.

    • charlotte

      She cut her hair for a movie, so maybe she is not (yet) comfortable with it.

  • GoryDetails

    Erk – bad combination! With that top, the skirt looks like a shawl pressed into emergency service after some sort of clothing damage to the original lower half. The skirt on its own is really lovely, but it needs a different outfit to show to advantage.

  • siriuslover

    I like the colors of the skirt. Yeah.

  • 3boysful

    Cher called–she wants her skirt back.

  • Kate

    What is she wearing and why is she famous?

    • kimmeister

      She got rave reviews for her role as George Clooney’s daughter in “The Descendants.”

      • Kate

        AH, never saw it which is why I don’t recognize her? Now, to answer the question what in the hell is she wearing?

  • LadyCelia

    Cher wants her apron back.

  • Poeta Paz

    I think she needs a neclace or earings. All The fun is in the skirt but she’s very plain in the top, like she’s wearing a sports bra.

  • barbarienne

    She…was working out and had to run to her job as a Vegas showgirl and didn’t have time to change her top?

  • Lily-Rygh

    What the…?

  • ‘Becca’lise Deveaux

    Don’t love the outfit, but I loved her so much in The Spectacular Now that I can’t hate on her for a while.

  • Judy_J

    She should have kept the belt

  • AnnaleighBelle

    I love the skirt. I prefer midriff-baring tops with lower-waisted skirts/pants so there’s more waistline curve, less skin over the waistband.

  • lexilexi

    I think she looks wonderful, and I love the skirt. She helped me get the dirty taste out of my mouth after I jumped ahead and looked at M Cyrus.

  • nannypoo

    This is not her outfit. And I think she needs more color in her lipstick.

  • MilaXX

    I liked this. The skirt was a great blend of modern and her hippy aesthetic. I wish she had kept the belt, but I understand that there is a no belt micro trend going on. My favorite thing was the major side eye she gave Miley last night .

  • semirose

    I hate to say it but if she wanted to go with a black crop top with that skirt one more like Miley’s in the next post (sans the rocks) would have worked better. That top is just so boxy and boring and hits at the wrong place which is made more obvious by the lack of belt.

  • decormaven

    Aww, wish she would have worn the belt! That would have elevated the look.

  • Mrs. Julien

    This with a silver tank (full coverage) would be lovely.

  • Imasewsure

    It’s not bad but it just looks unfinished. Much prefer it on her than on the model sporting that hideous belt and ugly sandals though

  • JauntyJohn

    I want to love but first take was Olympic Swimmer wearing a bandanna skirt.

    Girl, why you chicken out on makeup if you wearing sparkle hanky over your hoo hoo?

  • iseeshesaid

    Is she at the beach? Is she going to have a latte on a patio? Pedestrian at best.

  • steeg of their own

    Needs a different lipstick, a hint of blush, and very colorful earrings. Mostly earrings. Also shoes that aren’t black.

  • AnneElliot

    I hate it, even more so because the pumps, while actually quite nice, are too demure. She needs something wackier on the her feet.

  • MissFern

    I kind of love it. Only with those abs though.

  • Fred Vaughn

    It looks best in motion.

  • Her body is amazing. It deserves better.

  • broke&fashionable

    Maybe different hair? Though I cannot figure out what I would have preferred.

  • Florence Whytingale

    Oddly, this is the most polished I’ve seen her look on a red carpet. Baby steps.

  • kimiakay

    Needs the belt and different shoes. Love the skirt.

  • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

    She’s a weird one with me. She is supposedly on my Irrational Hate List. And whenever it is a photograph, she is — I don’t think she takes still photographs very well. But the second she opens her mouth I love her, and oh my god she can act circles around 99.9% of the actors out there. Usually celebs are the other way around. She’s on my Going To Win An Oscar Someday list.

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    Killer shirt and skirt, boring shoes, needed earrings.

  • Giustina Pileggi

    shoulda worn the belt

  • ballerinawithagun

    Definitely needs the edginess of the belt and sandals on the model. They also add the weight to the skirt to balance out the thick top.

  • bertkeeter

    LIKE…would be stronger with black belt! Hair n Makeup super!

  • Renaissance_Man_ATL

    Gorgeous and perfect for the VMAs!

  • Nicole Walraven

    to casual. and i wish she hadn’t worn the skirt so high.

  • mila_8

    Celine Dion lite

    • Lilyana_F

      Cannot unsee…

  • guest2visits

    Very pretty; but the top could be leftover from yoga class.

  • demidaemon

    Wow, a tablecloth and a sports bra. How awesome! Not.

  • Needs a belt and some edgier shoes.

  • librarygrrl64

    Honey, what’s this, what’s happening, what’s going on here?
