Style Star to Watch: Shailene Woodley

With the 2014 awards show season officially complete, we’re feeling a bit of withdrawal from the fabulous celebrity fashion we’ve seen on the red carpet over the last several months. Though our obsession with stars like Lupita Nyong’o and Jennifer Lawrence will probably never fade, we’re already searching for a new hot, young star to satisfy our insatiable red-carpet fashion appetite. And we already have one starlet in mind: Shailene Woodley. The actress stars in Divergent , the first in a set of movies based on a young-adult fiction series that’s full of mysteries, thrills, and some hot-and-steamy romance. Woodley has already started her rounds to promote the movie across the country, and she’s been looking really good doing it, showing up to a recent Atlanta screen in a bell-sleeved Alexander McQueen dress and killer black-and-green McQueen heels. With her new edgy haircut and continually improving personal style, we have no doubt that Woodley’s appearances will have us hooked on her star style in no time. But before we start looking forward to all the gorgeous and glamorous outfits she’s bound to wear, let’s take a look back at 10 of her best looks from red carpets past.

She may have gotten her big start on ABC Family’s The Secret Life of the American Teenager, but it was Woodley’s role in The Descendents that really launched her into the spotlight. And at the 2012 Golden Globes, the actress proved she belonged there with this stunning strapless Marchesa number.
