Kittens, we regret to inform you that the piper is at the door and he’s demanding to be paid. As much as we like to state that our mission is to distract you from the cares of the world by showing you pretty things, the sad and tragic fact of the matter (said matter being celebrity fashion) is that eventually, you run out of pretty things to look at. It’s like a metaphor about life or something. Anyway, our point: Miss Shailene’s here to break the streak of fabulousness and we’re just warning you now before you scroll down.
Yeah, no. We keep trying to like it because there are good reasons to do so, but the Mickey Mouse silhouette, hideous cutout and peplum are really awful. The proportions are weird. And like so much of what she’s worn out in the past year or so, it feels like she’s trying to be something – some high-fashion sort of glamour girl – that she really isn’t. Girl, this is not your look.
Having said that, while everyone and anyone can head out in the world wearing their short-shorts if they’re so inclined, it appears that Miss Shailene is particularly well-suited for it. She’s got the butt and legs to make it sing, is what we’re trying to say here. We have no objection to her working a formal short and in fact, everything going on from the waist down is pretty great here. Personally, we’d probably keep her in the sequined shorts and do something a little more her style with the top half, like a graphic t-shirt with a political undertone.
Also, we really don’t think the bangs are working anymore.
