Shailene Woodley Style Double Shot

Posted on March 28, 2014

We don’t even know what this is:

Events coordinator at a youth center, maybe? Concierge at a boutique hotel? Catering hall waitress just getting off shift? Whatever the hell it is, it ain’t working, that’s for sure.

This next one works but we actually feel a little bad saying so.

It’s not great or anything. It’s too wrinkled and the DIY hair is never going to stop looking terrible to us. But it’s pulled together without any real wrong notes and it’s got some style. The problem? It doesn’t feel like it’s her style. She doesn’t really strike us as a satin Dolce & Gabbana pantsuit kind of gal. As always, the tone is along the lines of “I’ve gotta get dressed? Fine. Hand me something.” It’s just that this time, she happened to put on something that actually works for her, even if it’s not the best style possible for her.

We’re just always gonna tsk and bitch over this girl, darlings. Like prissy uncles. We can feel it.

    • deelup

      First look- Nun on summer vacay.

      • Denise Alden

        Also: Julie McCoy on the Love Boat.

      • VicD

        The fairy blog sisters said “Styled by Ellen DeGeneres,” and I snorted out loud.

        • marlie

          Ellen has more style than this.

          • Jacob Bowen

            WAYYYY more style.

      • MK03

        Maria’s “get laid before you commit to the whole nun thing” clothes in the updated remake.

      • kimmeister

        I got “those little statues of old timey valets.”

      • MzzPants

        I was thinking ‘tour guide’.

      • Spreecord

        Elaine Benes joins Abnegation.

    • msdamselfly

      I think she looks great in both. For someone who gives the impression that she doesnt really like dressing up, she’s doing a great job.

      • cocohall

        I agree. She’s adorable and fresh.

    • Jessica Freeman

      I think she does lady pants better than the dresses. Not that this is great, but its…better…?

    • CO Gal

      You’re young and gorgeous. Dress like it.

    • alyce1213

      Oh come on, that’s not really D&G. It’s a uniform and someone’s punking us. Anyway, she looks as good in it as anyone can.
      I rather like the second look — she could be that girl from time to time, I wouldn’t complain. But the visible bra is not my favorite thing.
      And I LOVE that her shoes match the award — kismet.

      • Little_Olive

        That suit and visible bra is so 90s. And I don’t mean it in a good way.

        • Evan

          I kind of like it for that reason. Reminds me of 90s Madonna. I normally wouldn’t approve of exposing your bra, but I guess I like it for nostalgia reasons.

    • MilaXX

      The first look almost look like her. It just needs some tweaking to be a real style. Lose the khakis and give her a pair of jeans. Hell put her in a plain white t and jeans. Let her wear whatever strings or harmony bracelets she wants. Keep the shoe
      Second look is nice but doesn’t feel like her and I don’t like the shiny satin shoe with it.

    • http://myriameron.blogspot.com/ Heron

      Ok hear me out: I think she’s a cute little butch high schooler who hasn’t found her voice. I mean, I’m projecting (a LOT), but I would totally have worn things like this and thought I was hot as shit. Or worn them because they were comfortable. Then been really torn.

      • ryenerman

        I was just coming here to say that the first look is my all-girls high school circa 1984 (absent the horrible pleats that would have been in those pants at that time – thank god)

      • marlie

        I wore that back in the day because I was afraid of color.

    • kfizz

      The second one is almost perfect, but I think the lipstick clashes with the shoes. And it’s the lipstick that needs to change.

    • Danielle

      Half-assed pulling a Jolie. The world is currently your oyster, sweetie. Please get yourself some Chanel.

    • Cyprienne Zed

      Second outfit: That girl’s gonna fall out her shoes.

      • @Biting Panda

        How? Why? She and Emma Stone surely have enough lady balls to say “Fuck no, I am not walking around like that.” But they don’t.

        • Cyprienne Zed

          She’s a secret agent with an actual stiletto in-shoe-cognito? That’s the only explanation that makes sense.

    • @Biting Panda

      I can’t hate on these. Yes it’s a Dayshift/Nightshift uniform for that boutique hotel you mentioned, but I’m willing to give her a wee bit of slack. I’m overly generous with any young woman actress, who is not showing us the gynecological goods and shoving her new boobs in our faces. She’s caught me on a good day.

    • KinoEye

      You’ve trained me so well, Uncles. When I saw the second look I thought, “It looks great on her, but it’s not her style at all.” Not as epic as Miss Emma’s look from earlier this week, but much better than anything else she’s done lately.

      I can’t EVEN with the first look. I’m racking my brain and can’t think of one setting where this outfit would be expected or appropriate. It’s seriously the most confusing getup I’ve seen in a long time.

      • @Biting Panda

        I’ve been home sick, most of this week. Been watching a lot of Mad About You reruns. First look is totally updated Jamie Buchman. Also may be why I’m reasonably okay with it.

        • marlie

          Aw. That used to be my favorite show.

        • decormaven

          I thought you might be a bit feverish, as you’ve been so very charitable today. Take good care so you can exercise your BK powers to the fullest extent.

          • @Biting Panda

            It would take a fever to make me sweeter, wouldn’t it?

        • Little_Olive

          Yes!! (and all the while, she looks so much like Paul’s sister, I can never remember the actress’ name)

    • Meg

      I like both looks for her, actually. It’s okay if she doesn’t want to be into fashion or have her hair and makeup done professionally. Shouldn’t women be allowed to be actors without the requirement that they pretend to care about the trappings of fame they don’t care about? As long as she’s not in something so casual or ratty it’s disrespectful (like those cutoff jean shorts she wore a bit ago), I think it’s nice to see a young woman in the business who feels comfortable resisting the pressure to fake it.

      • cocohall

        Perfectly said!

      • demidaemon

        I agree, to a degree. It’s a nice sentiment, but in today’s Hollywood, part of the job is getting gussied up and selling the shit out of whatever project you are currently in. The best ones find a way to inject their own personal style and beliefs into it. She hasn’t done that yet. Certainly, she can find a team that can give her unfussy hair, a “clean” face, and a style that feels like her, but she certainly isn’t doing it yet, and, as a result, either looks uncomfortable, inappropriate, or disrespectful. It’s like anyone else coming to work in clothes not befitting the job.

      • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

        “Shouldn’t women be allowed to be actors without the requirement that they pretend to care about the trappings of fame they don’t care about?”

        All of our red carpet coverage is premised on the idea that celebrities have a responsibility to dress appropriately and well when presenting themselves to the public and doing marketing work for their projects.

        • Meg

          Well, sure, but she IS dressed appropriately in these particular photos (the jean shorts were another thing completely). She’s groomed. She’s even wearing makeup– your quibble is that it’s not applied professionally because…why? Because it isn’t flawless enough to convince people her face naturally looks like that? Maybe the standards are relaxing, but I have trouble seeing that as anything but a good thing for women as people.

          Obviously I’m fine with some fashion snark or I wouldn’t be here and I wouldn’t enjoy the work that you do. I just feel like perhaps you’ve latched onto this particular young woman a bit unfairly, in a way that occasionally makes me, and evidently about 36 of your other readers, uncomfortable.

          • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

            Well I’m not sure what to tell you about that. There’s nothing we can look at in the above post that we could call cruel or even mean. And there’s nothing in this post that hasn’t been said about countless other stars here on the site. And we didn’t say anything about her makeup.

      • twigg

        But even she has said that dressing up and the whole shebang is part of the job.

    • http://vispreeve.tumblr.com/ Den Milano

      With the first look she’s giving us Ellen realness. In the 2nd look she looks likes she’s in pain (those shoes!). It’s too tight on her, too shiny and overall cheap looking.

    • Kitten Mittons

      I guess she never did have time to get that manicure finished….

      I like the second look well enough. The first…I dunno. The bottom half could be great for an everyday look, paired with something else. But not paired with that, and not for an event with pictures.

    • LeelaST

      With the second look I feel I should be glad she’s wearing a bra, then again, she’s only wearing a bra under a jacket.

      • VicD

        That’s where the second one lost me. Just like “tights are not pants,” a bra is not a shirt. That sliver of skin that peeks above the blazer buttons and below the bra is just inexcusable. It’s “Kar-trash-ian” in execution.

    • ojosazules

      Female Star of Tomorrow could give a shit, apparently.

    • crash1212

      Did she run out of blue nail polish? Great suit. Unfortunate hair.

    • cluecat

      I like that she’s weird beautiful. There’s something really odd about her face — all of the pieces are very pretty but put together they look disharmonious and very atypical for chosen Hollywood starlet. I have actually practiced the sun and air on your vag thing after weeks of lady health drama and I have to say there is something to it.

      The fashion? Meh on the menswear (except for Tilda Swinton). The ’90s had a brief vest and suit vest tshirt thing and I haven’t fully recovered from. I had a one that was paisley! I wore it with a black velvet choker.

    • Miss wks

      It’s part of the Jane Leeves Lady Golfer Spring 2014 collection….

      • alyce1213

        Jane Leeves – you nailed it.

    • marlie

      That first look… school uniform? I get that she’s not a “fashion” person, and maybe she really doesn’t care, but I her people really need to get her to step it up while she’s promoting this movie Just a little.

      The second… ENH. I don’t know why she’s posing like that. And the whole look makes her look bulky.

      • kimmeister

        I could wish to look so bulky . . .

    • Sofia

      those legs in the second pic. holy mother they go on for days!

      • Kitten Mittons

        They always look so long. I’m green with envy.

    • Dreamwr8tr

      The first look: Shailene Woodley is playing Ellen if she were a high school student forced to wear beige and white for the 90′s dress code and hadn’t found her style yet. Khakis too short for tall girls:check. Minimalist jewelry:check. Fresh-faced to no makeup: check. Shoes: Doc Martens are prohibited, let’s wear some Keds I wear to prep school tennis practice.
      Second look: Hooker business casual. The shiny makes it casual. The bra and the shoes make it hooker. The suit means business. Shut up Ally McBeal!

      She’s cute. I just think she needs to channel Ellen or Rachel Maddow. Sort of.

      • Jacob Bowen

        KEDS! I made my mom retire hers in 2005, at no self-respecting 14 year old gay boy wants to be seen with a mom wearing Keds with a T length dress (got rid of those, too)!

        • Gatto Nero

          What does she wear now?

    • decormaven

      That second look makes me think of Madonna’s backup singers. “Don’t go for second best, baby…”

      • Evan

        Made me think of Madge too!

    • Pablo

      She needs a stylist IMMEDIATELY

    • lunchcoma

      The first one is pure Newly Minted Intern on Her Commute.

    • Imasewsure

      Fist look unspeakable (unless I need help on the Lido deck) and the second one… would have been cute with shorts or something younger looking. Shoes look cruel… still we’ll take it

    • Trickytrisha

      All I get from looking at her is Meh. Doesn’t much matter what she wears, it’s always Meh.

      • demidaemon

        I get Meh with a side of “I don’t really want to wear this shit, but here. This is all I’ve got.”

    • sk8tfan

      vapid mouth breather aspiring to Emma Roberts’ level of non-achievement. She’ll go away soon enough.

    • a_liking

      actually think the first look is adorable. the fit is great, the colors could be better, but i generally love it.

    • TheOkeyDoke

      The stylish Girl Scout troop leader. Did anyone else think she had on Keds at first?

    • jw_ny

      1st look…spa hostess
      2nd look…dang girl…ya legs are a mile long!

    • ShaoLinKitten

      From the waist down she’s Sandy in Grease in the final number. Google it and tell me I’m wrong. Sorry, Shailene, you’re not “the one that I want… ooo ooo ooo.”

    • http://twitter.com/#!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      I hope she settles on a look soon, this is just a cringe-fest.

    • DominoEstella

      so… it looks like she has 1 1/2 facial expressions. She’s gorgeous and her body is pretty smokin, but she always looks out of her element. I don’t know a single hippie that would wear python shoes.

    • SorayaS

      I can’t even believe the first look is D&G and that those shoes are Louboutins!

      I’m blown away by the second look though- it would probably look tacky on most people but we almost never see her this styled (love the hair and makeup) and she looks great!

      • wisdomy

        My thought when I saw the first picture was “I don’t know if it’s necessarily her fault, but if I didn’t know otherwise I’d assume that entire outfit came from Target.”

    • Amel

      Well the way she’s styling herself, I feel like you won’t have to tsk much longer. Her looks so far have been either ugly or boring, and I feel like I have no sense of a consistent brand for her as an actress.

    • E2_Remote

      This is the third time I’ve seen her wear that necklace – with three totally different outfits. Definitely adds to the whole “I just threw this on” vibe when you can’t even be bothered to change up your jewelry.

    • kt

      This is more of a “pulling a Jolie” for me than Angie ever did. This lovely child is blessed with a great face and a model body. And it has got to be the model body that trips her up. She is sample size, literally, instead of “i can zip it” sample size, she is what the designer was sizing to. So even though her clothes are odd, she isn’t ever going to be in a position of being too chesty/short/tall/bottom heavy to have to figure out what works for her. It all fits and hangs the way it does on the runway, and she is certainly one of the ones who DGAF about fashion. C’est la vie I suppose

    • Little_Olive

      Reality bites.

    • kategs

      I really like both looks, she looks chic and relaxed. She is who she is folks. She ain’t gonna change for the BKs.

      • Suzanne Johnson

        I so agree with you. It’s interesting how much kinder the commentariate is over on the Fug Girls site than it is here, although I assume there is some overlap.

        I like Shailene. This young woman is an amazing actor, and if she’s not a fashionista, I for one don’t care. I’m only interested in what she may do with the film version of “The Fault in Our Stars,” a young-adult novel I never expected to like and wound up loving.

      • kategs

        Well Suzanne, I guess your comment was considered not nice and you were deleted. A shame. I thought you were spot on!

    • Anna

      To the top – NO. To the bottom – get better shoes.

    • http://tvblogster.blogspot.com Boop

      Looks like the Gap spring collection. 1999.

    • demidaemon

      Holy crap that first look is all kinds of wrong. I really think this girl needs to take TLo’s advice and do upgraded bohemian/gypsy styles.

    • MaggieMae

      1-800-GET-A-GOOD-STYLIST

    • Clash D

      It’s interesting how stumpy she looks in the first photo but has legs for days in the second one.
      Both outfits are kinda off. The first one lacks any kind of visual interest (something about the white tee/vest, or both – bugs me). The second look shows she can definately pull off ‘Va-va-voom’ but isn’t as polished as it could be. But I think she’s trying.

    • Dawn

      First outfit: Lurlene was very excited that the sister wives were allowed to wear pants now, but she was afraid the bishop would not approve of her shorn hair. Second outfit: Community theater Sandy in the “Grease” carnival scene.

    • Tracy_Flick

      Wow. That is some boring 90s oatmeal she’s wearing in that first one. YIKES. She’s ready to run for student body vice president. As for the second, the jacket is too big. It makes it look like she’s playing dress up.

    • V No Privacy

      She looks so much like Cobie Smulders in the second outfit, I can’t un-see it.

    • Jecca2244

      i’ve never seen anyone as uncomfortable to be in clothes (and any clothes really) as this woman.

    • mlle

      First look: manager at the Gap in 1994.
