March 19, 2014 Premiere, Runway To Red Carpet

Shailene Woodley In Elie Saab Couture - ‘Divergent’ LA Premiere

Shailene Woodley blew me away on the red carpet for the ‘Divergent’ LA premiere held at the Regency Bruin Theatre on Tuesday (March 18) in Los Angeles, California, where she joined Kate Winslet.

If you’ve been waiting for Shailene to wow you, this might be the night.

Usually one to play it quite safe and – dare I say – boring, the actress had her coming-out party wearing a glamorous Elie Saab Fall 2010 Couture gown.

Her fully beaded bronze gown with a draped shoulder and a high slit was constructed slightly differently than on the red carpet, but I think it was for the better.

Complementary gold Stuart Weitzman sandals and gold stud earrings accessorized her look, with her usual barely there makeup look and smoothed-back tresses rounding out her look.

Are you loving this style-180, or would you have preferred to have seen this on Penelope Cruz, Eva Mendes or Angelina Jolie?

    I’m not in love with this dress but it was her first real fashionable moment on this premiere tour so it was a big deal when she showed up in this!

    Dreadful, and what’s that ratty string around her ankle? And is Stuart Weitzman giving away these sandals? Every celeb is wearing them.

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen her look better, though I do think it’s a little mature for her.

    That girl makes her look like she badly needs a sandwich or 453

    Stunning! It might be a tad too old for her, but she looks fantastic.

    Not feeling this. The silhouette, color, and beading are all wrong, especially considering her age and slightly boyish frame. Had she draped the dress the way the model did on the runway, it would have looked much better, but as it is it looks so matronly and contrived.

    I like that she’s been more exciting lately. However, I don’t think this is the right gown for her. Thinking Kate Beckinsale.

  8. Magdalena March 19, 2014 at 7:53 pm #

    This is awesome. It’s refreshing both to see her this glam, and to see a not so princessy Elie Saab gown.

  9. Luna March 19, 2014 at 7:48 pm #

    She looks positively radiant! The gown is appropriately elegant and show stopping. BDOTW

    i used love Shailene Woodley on the red carpet but, I feel ike everything she wears is either boing or ages her. This gown should be on a woman much older (notice all the examples FC mentioned were well into their 30’a & 40’s) I jut feel she doesn’t have much fun on the red carpet.

    Wow!!! Golden girl! Stunning

  12. Jess436 March 19, 2014 at 2:33 pm #

    Dress is the wrong color and too big.
    What does she think she is? Dynasty!? This is for a 60 year old… I heard the movie sucks too

  13. Joan March 19, 2014 at 1:39 pm #

    My second favorite look of the night…only because author Veronica Roth gave these movie stars a run for their money!

    She should have kept the runway version, she looks lost too much fabric.

  15. dee March 19, 2014 at 12:44 pm #

    I like it.

  16. Nira March 19, 2014 at 12:41 pm #

    FC, did you see that this look was styled by Ilaria Urbinati, her first collab with Shailene? She is a magician. Hopefully they work together again in the future!

    • Catherine Kallon March 19, 2014 at 12:53 pm #

      Yes, I am VERY excited about this. If any one can shake up her style, it’s Ilaria.

  17. theitjournal March 19, 2014 at 12:32 pm #

    she looks like she picks a mummy dress i mean she’s young and even if elie saab is a genius he can’t do miracles and that dress is beautiful but becomes ugly on her because its not the right size, not the age appropriate, and the color doesn’t go with complexions ! this is a dress for a diva

    • Randa March 24, 2014 at 9:15 am #

      totally agree with you!

  18. Zissou March 19, 2014 at 11:55 am #

    I enjoy the dress, but the print is making it photograph REALLY poorly and that makes this a no-no for a premiere.

  19. kane March 19, 2014 at 11:52 am #

    Gives me associations of Tarzan and Jane, otherwise it’s okay.

  20. Sophy March 19, 2014 at 11:41 am #

    She looks sophisticated and sexy – looks like a sari

  21. Pedro March 19, 2014 at 11:15 am #

    She looks amazing!


  22. Jess March 19, 2014 at 10:40 am #

    I think that she looks fresh and youthful, and the gown doesn’t overwhelm her. A little bit underwhelming, and I’m not big on the asymmetrical part, but I like this.

  23. Christine March 19, 2014 at 10:35 am #

    Again I take interesting gowns like this over boring any day.

    She looks nice. Not wowed but nice

  24. Clara March 19, 2014 at 10:24 am #

    I was hoping she would wear something from him, but she surprised me with the choice of a couture gown. Personally, I think she looks great, maybe the runway version would have looked slightly better on her, but it’s still a change from her usual style in the right direction. In the end, a great look.

  25. Yeliz March 19, 2014 at 10:06 am #

    This might be one of her best looks ever. She looks fantastic. I love her modified version of this gown.

  26. Joy March 19, 2014 at 10:05 am #

    Wow, what a beautiful dress. I like it a lot on her, not sure I love it. Something about it doesn’t fully sell it to me. But it is an amazing Elie Saab creation.

    On another note, her and Kate’s stylists should have coordinated or something. The dresses clash together.

  27. Princess Chi Chi March 19, 2014 at 9:59 am #

    Nice design and concept but the gown seems so hang off of Shailene’s frame wrong. Her arm is really scaring me though…

    • CreoleLady March 19, 2014 at 9:48 pm #

      ITA. Scary indeed. Prefer on the model. I like the dress, something a little different from Saab and for Shailene.

  28. Charlotte March 19, 2014 at 9:53 am #

    I don’t like the asymetric part and I’m not too fond of the color either. Plus I miss a cuff or maybe some drops earrings, in gold.
    However she looks really great in this dress.

    • Alina March 19, 2014 at 7:40 pm #

      I agree.

  29. Laura March 19, 2014 at 9:52 am #

    Stunning!! She looks great!
