Shailene Woodley is having a major moment right now. Who would have thought the star of ABC Family's The Secret Life of the American Teenager would skyrocket to fame in just a few short years? Still riding the wave of her success from The Fault In Our Stars and Divergent, Woodley is currently celebrating the release of Insurgent. She is seriously everywhere you look these days. There's no doubt that the actress is on a roll — and now she's hitting newsstands. Shailene Woodley covers the April issue of Nylon, looking like the powerful, badass woman we know she is.
Woodley stayed true to her tomboy-ish style on the cover, sporting a piece-y pixie cut, a midriff-baring collared shirt, and very minimal makeup. Nonetheless, she still looked gorgeous, and I absolutely love that she didn't stray far from her signature, all-natural look. Additionally, Woodley sports a sort of "I don't really care what people think of me" look, which just adds to the super cool and tough exterior that she already exudes.
As a young successful women in light of the public eye, I find Woodley to be a truly great role model for young girls. Just as this cover shot demonstrates, she advocates against labels of any kind, and promotes the idea of staying true to yourself. I love that she didn't opt for a super sexy, skin baring ensemble as many like her would. Instead, she showcases beauty, strength, and strong female empowerement, both through her fashion decisions and the acting roles she chooses. You go girl!
