Shailene Woodley wore Valentino at last night’s Hollywood Film Awards. She looks lovely but always dresses so mature for her age. I’d like to see her embrace her early 20s with some really fun fashion. Shailene won the breakthrough award for her portrayal of a teenage cancer patient in The Fault in Our Stars. The dress has star-like embellishments, so maybe that’s why Shailene picked it. On second thought, those look like starfishes. This dress looks really cheap for Valentino, but Shai’s fashion sense is very offbeat.
Shailene’s speech was very genuine, and you can tell that she loved playing 16-year-old Hazel. Shai said, “She recognizes it’s not about how long a life we lead or the mark we leave on the world that matters. It’s about simple things like gratitude and not taking anything for granted. Every day we wake up and we’re breathing, we’re winning. We all already have victories on our plate the second we leave our pillows in the morning. [She] reminded me of that, that simple truth.” I often give Shailene a hard time for her naval-gazing, but this is a fine speech.
Here’s a better look at Shailene’s dress. It suits her, but there’s something missing. Her makeup artist got carried away with the HD powder.
Laura Dern presented Shailene’s award. They’re really good friends, and Shailene spends a lot of time at Laura’s house. Laura wore this black Alberta Ferretti gown. This dress is a little too ruffly and Vegas-y, but the turquouse Ethan K clutch provides a welcome pop of color.
