Shailene Woodley on the cover of 'Elle.'
Well, they could have at LEAST given the girl a towel. Shailene Woodley is one of six actresses (alongside big screen heavy weights like Reese Witherspoon, Penelope Cruz and Marion Cotillard) who appear on the cover of Elle’s “2013 Women in Hollywood” issue—and from the looks of it, she probably smells like chlorine. I mean, Shailene’s gotta be a very busy lady, so it’s totally possible that the mag had to squeeze a quick photoshoot in during her daily back-stroke lesson, or whatever. Or it could just be about #FASHUN. (It’s probably about #FASHUN.) Slicked back hair IS pretty chic right now.
Shailene Woodley for 'Elle.'
The 21-year-old actress, who talked to the mag about her totally ordinary 5-year plan (“Maybe I’ll work in a tea shop. Or live in Amsterdam. Or be a nanny.”), donned a Calvin Klein one-piece, white Eytys sneakers and a $4,000 David Yurman bracelet for her stark, natural cover. OK, on second thought, you praaahbably shouldn’t/can’t wear that kind of bling while doing laps (unless you're like, Karl Lagerfeld), so I think it’s safe to assume that her swimwear style all for the sake of #FASHUN, not convenience.
Inside the mag, the starlet slips into (multiple) Calvins for a bare, stunning, black-and-white shot. Woodley wears a suede jacket, cotton tank and black swimsuit bottom, all by Calvin Klein, and if this whole ~acting~ thing doesn’t work out, she could totally have a career with Sports Illustrated. Or as a professional swimmer. She might not even be able to tread water, for all we know, but she’s selling it to us THAT hard right now.
