There was something different about Shailene Woodley at the 2014 Met Gala, and we couldn’t put our finger on it. She was wearing a nature-inspired gown from Rodarte — that was par for the course. She left the house shoeless — nothing strange there. She kept her styling to a minimum — again, more of the same. Just about midnight, when we’d been staring at Met Gala photos for hours, it struck us: The actress was sporting a new, blonder shade.
For years, Woodley’s long, auburn-tinged locks were the hallmark of her look (and took up the longest part of her beauty routine). But when the actress chopped it all off for her role in The Fault in Our Stars, she appeared to be ready to shake more things up as well. Her Met Gala style was the latest new look Woodley was trying out — mussed, gelled and combed into a perky pixie. Most noteworthy about the do: the blonde highlights Woodley is now sporting in her close crop.
We’re big fans of Woodley’s short style no matter how she wears it. Maybe now that she’s lightening up, she could be the next star to go purple, or shave half her head? What do you think of Woodley’s lighter locks? What would you like to see next? Tell us in the comments!
