Shailene Woodley In 3.1 Phillip Lim – 27th Annual Santa Barbara Film Festival

Revelling in her first awards season, Shailene Woodley stopped by the Santa Barbara Film Festival on Friday.

Taking a breather from the more formal award shows’ dress code, Shailene wore a simple navy 3.1 Phillip Lim leather shift dress from the Resort 2012 collection.

The tough dress was paired with dainty nude Pierre Hardy sandals.

Shailene is all about minimalism on the red carpet, but I would have loved to have seen one stand-out accessory added to this outfit.

How amazing would a statement necklace have looked?

Natural hair and makeup finish the look.

Vanity Fair March 2012 Hollywood Issue

Vanity Fair’s March 2012 issue, which is the annual Hollywood Issue, features eleven of the most up-and-coming actresses who were shot by Mario Testino.

The main cover features Rooney Mara, Jennifer Lawrence, Mia Wasikowska and Jessica Chastain.

After the fold we have Elizabeth Olsen, Adepero Oduye, Shailene Woodley, Paula Patton, Felicity Jones, Lily Collins and Brit Marling.

There are always great debates that go on with regards to this cover every year.

I would’ve swapped Mia with Elizabeth and had her on the main cover, and I’m not sure Paula should be considered up-and-coming as she’s been around for a while. Also Shailene is totally unrecognisable.

Each actress wore a pastel-coloured satin dress for the 20s boudoir-themed shoot with screen-siren hairstyles and bold lip colours.

They all look great, but Jennifer steals the cover for me as she’s in full-on bombshell mode. Very Jessica Rabbit.

Here are some extracts from their interviews:

Jessica on her superstar crush:The English Patient. Of course. Those love scenes!”

Jennifer on who else she’s like to work with: “I’d love to work with the Cohen brothers. Tommy Lee Jones. Jack Nicholson. And I’d love to work with Renee Zellweger. I’m a huge Renee Zellweger fan.”

Rooney on her crush growing up: “Thom Yorke.”

Jennifer on her childhood crush: “When I was little, like 90s, era, I had such a big crush on Justin Timberlake from *NSYNC that I almost thew up.”

Shailene Woodley In L’Wren Scott – 2012 SAG Awards

Shailene Woodley continues to be one of my favourite young stars to watch on the red carpet.

The young actress chose a bold look for the 2012 SAG Awards by wearing a L’Wren Scott Spring 2012 gown.

The pale grey column gown with a white-and-red floral print stood out amongst a sea of grey/off-white dresses.

Shailene let the dress speak for itself by opting for no stand-out accessories, barely-there makeup and a ponytail.

Do you like this understated look or did she not put enough effort into it?

Shailene Woodley In Valentino – 2012 Directors Guild Of America Awards

Shailene Woodley also attended the 2012 Directors Guild of America Awards, which took place on Saturday evening in Hollywood, California.

The young actress wore a Valentino Spring 2012 gown.

As her red crochet gown was totally see-through she also wore a strapless two-tone mini dress underneath.

Whilst Diane Kruger sported a similar look last week, it matched.

On this occasion I wish the strapless dress had been less fussy and a bit longer. A simple nude long slip dress is another option.

That being said her youthful take is more interesting and I think she manages to pull it off.

Barely-there makeup and a braided ponytail side-swept ponytail completed her look.

Yay or nay on the strapless two-tone dress as an underlay?

Shailene Woodley In Valentino – 2012 Producers Guild Awards

After having such a great start to award season, Shailene Woodley arrived at the 2012 Producers Guild Awards on Saturday in Beverly Hills, California wearing a look which fails to excite.

She wore a Valentino Pre-Fall 2011 black velvet dress which isn’t particularly flattering.

The look may have been improved had she opted for the roped belt as worn by the model, but I think I’m just clutching at straws here.

The good things about her look are her Sergio Rossi ‘Ophidia’ cage sandals and the luscious rich red lip colour.

It’s a shame the dress didn’t live up to the shoes and makeup.

Shailene Woodley In Marchesa – 2012 Golden Globe Awards

Shailene Woodley was a vision on the red carpet for the 2012 Golden Globe Awards on Sunday.

The young actress wore a lilac Marchesa embroidered illusion column dress with a draped detail on the hips from the Spring 2012 collection after a weekend of busy prints.

Wisely, she didn’t opt for any over-the-top accessories and instead allowed her dress to stand out.

As usual she opted for light barely-there makeup and a simple chic bun.

Shailene Woodley In Jason Wu – BAFTA Awards Season Tea Party

Shailene Woodley attended the BAFTA Awards Season Tea Party in LA on Saturday afternoon.

The actress looked very tea party appropriate in a modest Jason Wu Pre-Fall 2012 silk flounce dress, paired with simple black pumps.

Shailene continued to prove that she is not afraid of daring prints, wearing an abstract geometrical design.

I would have preferred Shailene to have worn her dress with the knotted leather belt worn by the model, but regardless this is another solid showing from the young actress.

Loose waves and neutral makeup finish the look.
