Hang loose, take in Shailene Woodley's casual and glam styles

Jason Kempin / Today
Yes, Shailene Woodley throws up the surfer's "shaka" a lot when getting her picture taken.

Shailene Woodley might very well be the next star you can't get enough of (oh, hey, Jennifer Lawrence) thanks to her starring role in this weekend's hotly anticipated "Divergent."

Whether it's the 22-year-old's place in the big-screen version of the popular dystopian novel, or her unique views on diet and medicine (or sunbathing), Woodley is having no troubling grabbing headlines.

But it's the weekend. You came here to look at pictures. So how has Woodley presented herself along the way in the massive push that comes with selling the next big movie of the moment?

Let's look back at her successful mix of casual and high-style fashions.

This may come as a 'shaka'


Woodley went semi-glam, left, for a screening of "Divergent" hosted by Marie Claire and The Cinema Society in New York on March 20, and then she was hanging loose in camo-casual for the after-party. She changed again for an appearance on "Late Night With Seth Meyers."

What's not to like about a T-shirt and jeans for a radio appearance? Thrown on some beads, push the hair back with your sunglasses and this young adult stuff writes itself.

Put a fancy co-star on your hip

Woodley needed no help shining (in gold Elie Saab Couture) on the red carpet at the Los Angeles premiere of her film on March 18. But why not saddle up to Kate Winslet or Maggie Q or her leading man, Theo James, for a little extra sparkle?

OK, a couple more of that dude


Woodley, as Tris, throws some shade at James, as Four, in a still from "Divergent," left, but at a screening of the film on March 17 in Thousand Oaks, Calif., short-shorts, flip-flops and flannels were the order of the day for the duo.

Talk the talk-show talk

Woodley (in a T-shirt again) and James chatted with Savannah Guthrie on TODAY on March 12, and later she layered up and proved she was game for some Double Turtleneck Ping Pong with Jimmy Fallon on the "Tonight Show."

Fly, fly away


Woodley was still breaking in those Chuck Taylors, left, as she signed a quick autograph at LAX on March 10. On March 6 at the airport she ugged her own Uggs and lugged her own luggage.

Finish with a flurry


The busy past few months for the actress also included appearances at, from left, a movie theater in Atlanta, the Independent Spirit Awards in Santa Monica, Calif., a publicists' awards luncheon in Beverly Hills, and finally (still hanging loose) at Sundance in Park City, Utah.
