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!

She did it for divergent. So she won’t be getting all crazy and Start doing crazy colors.

Shailene looks beautiful! I had a pixie for a year and a half, and now I have long hair extensions.

Tara on

Sam on

A JLaw wannabe.

Joanna on

She didn’t cut her hair for Divergent. She did it for The Fault In Our Stars because she plays a cancer patient in that movie. I think she kind of looks like Jennifer Lawrence in the second photo. I do prefer her with much longer hair. It will be interesting to see if she decides to keep her short hair long term or if she will let it grow. She kind of needs the long hair for Divergent so perhaps she will have a wig for the second film until her hair grows out or not.

Miranda on
