This Is What a Hippie Wears to the Met Gala

May 6 2014 - 7:21am

You can't take the hippie [1] totally out of the dress . . . but you sure can try! Every time she's on a red carpet, we can't help but notice something about Shailene Woodley — no matter what she's wearing or who she's with, we find ourselves oddly distracted by and drawn to the star.

That's because whether she's dressed up in gowns or casual in denim, the Divergent actress is having the time of her life on the red carpet. A self-proclaimed "hippie," [2] Shailene has us wanting to run through an open field and pluck flowers for our hair every time she throws up those shaka signs.

Most recently, she arrived for the the Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art [3] as a guest of Rodarte [4] wearing a mixed-media, off-the-shoulder gown. Thanks to a sheer hem, we could easily detect her transition from slim sandals on the red carpet to completely bare feet on the sidewalk. There's still always a bit of hippie in her — even with her high-end picks — so scroll through to see what we mean.

While she was dressed up in Rodarte [5]'s finest for fashion's ultimate night of glamour, Shailene couldn't resist the opportunity to flash her signature hand sign.

She also couldn't resist the chance to remove her sandals once she hit the NYC pavement, taking Kristen Stewart's signature heel-to-sneaker swap [6] one step further.

Shailene was a total knockout in her gold-chain-detailed white Zuhair Murad gown.

But what's that she wore on her feet? Nothing. That Shailene is grounded (literally).

No shoes, no problem for Shailene — not even when she stepped out into the streets of Berlin.

To premiere Divergent in London, she reminded us just how stunning she can look in a gown, picking a rich blue number with a train, lace detailing at the neck, and a serpent cuff worn on her upper arm.

But it was the large keyhole back that really made us swoon.

And even in a sexy black suit, another Dolce & Gabbana [7], she couldn't help but get a little funky.

For a CinemaCon appearance, she opted for casual suiting, stepping out in matching Dolce & Gabbana [8] pieces, worn over a white t-shirt and with studded oxfords.

Of course when she does bring it, she seriously brings it!

And when she lets loose, she really lets loose.

Peace, love, and Shailene (not to mention, more Elie Saab [9]!). The actress attended a New York screening in an embellished black jumpsuit.

The gown: Elie Saab [10]. The pose: Shailene Woodley.

And then there are the times when she skips the dress altogether. Shailene was true to character at a California screening, when she opted for denim cutoffs, a white tank top, sandals and a very familiar looking hoodie [11].

Of course her moves aren't restricted to simple hand gestures. And with the mobility of Casadei [12]'s flats and Lyn Devon's 2-piece ensmeble she eased on down the teal carpet.

If any event could bring out her free spirit [13], it was this one.

And things got real boho when she tossed a gray hoodie and side-slung tote over her ensemble.

And Shailene isn't alone. Her vibe is so infectious that when she kicked up her platform Alexander McQueen [14] heels, she got a well-suited Theo James to break character and get into the act.

Then there was that time when she seemed to have mellowed in a proper and polished peach Jonathan Saunders [15] dress. . .

But when she stepped backstage the guns came out. And by "guns" we mean those shaka signs.

Yes, there's always been something about Shailene — but when she first arrived to the White Bird in a Blizzard premiere in head-to-toe black and a Navajo pendant, we couldn't quite put our finger on what that special something was.
