Shailene Woodley was stunning on the red carpet in a figure-hugging and alluring black jumpsuit at ‘The Divergent Series: Allegiant’ world premiere in New York City. You can see the photos and the video right here of the star who’s returned yet again to reprise her role as Tris in the franchise that brought her fame.
It’s the third time around, a world premiere, for the Shailene Woodley who’s gone on to become an A-list Hollywood star as the heroine Beatrice ‘Tris’ Prior of ‘The Divergent Series’ franchise. Yes, two blockbusters in the recent past and now what looks to be a third. And all the wile Woodley has remain unscathed unlike other stars who have become household names thanks to trilogies based on YA novels.
She’s done so as an individual, no less. With interviews that raise eyebrows, of course, and spark discussion, of course, but yet no scandals. One senses that after ‘Divergent’ has come and gone she’ll have a huge career as an actress of merit and gravitas. She’s shown us a bit of that already, portraying Hazel in ‘The Fault in Our Stars,’ based on the John Green novel of cancer survivors who fall in love.
Stepping out on the red carpet, not surprisingly, Shailene Woodley didn’t pick a sheer gown to provoke attention but instead, she was stunning in a jumpsuit. Who knew jumpsuits could be so glamorous. Well, this one is certainly a standard bearer should that become the latest fashion trend. She’s decked out in an embroidered Elie Saab jumpsuit that shows her svelte physique to full advantage.
As with ‘The Hunger Games’ franchise, and Jennifer Lawrence, which has now seen its conclusion, Woodley has become a role model, portraying a fierce and independent character, continuing the new trend of such heroines in movies. Even ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens” has incorporated such a character, with Daisy Ridley’s Ray.
In a recent interview, Shailene Woodley spoke about her character Tris and the parallels to her own life and personality, saying, “Well, we’re both pretty stubborn, and confident of our ability to get things done. We’re also both fighters. In a fight-or-flight situation, we would both fight.”
Continuing, she added, “As for differences, I would say I’m less impulsive than Tris is. I would say I’m still impulsive, in many ways. But she’s incredibly impulsive physically, and because of that, a lot of situations could have been avoided had she not been so pro-active in her physicality.”
And thankfully, this is not the last we’ll see of ‘The Divergent Series’ as another installment is on the way next year. But for now, the Manhattan premiere at AMC Loews Theater was a star-studded, as expected, and Shailene Woodley shared the red carpet with her co-stars, Theo James, her onscreen love interest as well as Andy Bean, Ansel Elgort, Miles Teller, Naomi Watts, Dylan McDermott, Maggie Q and others.
