Shailene Woodley vs. Jennifer Lawrence

I was thinking about The Descendants and how Shailene Woodley is only 21 (born in 1991 makes you sick) and how good the film was, and then I realised that she is basically Jennifer Lawrence a year later.

Jennifer was the big young name throughout awards season after her plethora of nominations for her role in Winter’s Bone, according to IMDb she was nominated 29 times including a Best Actress nod at the Oscars, and won 10 awards including the Rising Star Award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival. A massive haul for the now 21 year old, and a massive promotional tour of the red carpet.

My absolute favourite will always be the Calvin Klein she wore to the Oscars, a super 10/10 on the sexiness scale and I said before that she was too sexy for the Oscars but looking back the gown was perfect, sleek and simple and she didn’t go over the top.

Shailene also opted for Calvin Klein on the red carpet at the Annual Critics Choice Movie Awards 2012 but in a more refined gown from the Resort 2012 collection. It wasn’t red-hot like Jennifer, but icy cool and fresh with minimal make up. The minimal make up look is a definite recurring trend for Shailene, her natural beauty literally shines through, no layers and layers of eyeshadow and eyeliner needed, she keeps it simple and understated.

  1. Wonderful post, as per. :0)

    I’m going to go and search ‘Shailene Woodley’ and ‘Lace Honor dress’ – it’s precisely the kind of frock I’d like to marry in. Understated, feminine and carefree.

    Google, here I come…

  2. Thank you Sarah! It intrigues me that this is the kind of dress you would like to marry in, unconventionally short but delicately pretty I wonder how your wedding will come together – chic and oh-so stylish no doubt! x
