Shailene Woodley: I'd Wear Sneakers with a Gown Again 'in a Heartbeat'

When it comes to style, Shailene Woodley is on both sides of the fence.

“I really don’t know anything about fashion,” The Descendants star told FASHIONetc at Thursday’s Honor runway presentation during New York Fashion Week. “This is my first fashion show ever.”

And though the Oscars are only weeks away, the 20-year-old has lax specifications for her gown. “I have to be able to breathe,” she says. “I have to be able to have a food baby, and if I’m going to be sweaty, I need a dress that won’t show my sweat marks.”

But despite her nonchalance, Woodley also has her convictions: “I would do it again in a heartbeat,” she tells New York of the much-maligned (and much-criticized) barefoot running shoes she wore to a Golden Globes after-party.

“If people spent as much time thinking about the genocides going on in Africa and around the world as they do the shoes that actors wear to after-parties, the world would be a much more peaceful environment.”
