The Descendants star Shailene Woodley (formely of The O.C.) is catching quite a bit of flack from blogs today not for her official Golden Globes red carpet ensemble (which, for the record, was lovely), but for her curious choice of footwear for the Golden Globes after party.
Getty photos don’t lie: after looking awesome all night, she decided it would be a good idea to pair an elegant black gown with those creepy-looking “Five Fingers” shoes that are supposed to help you commune with nature when you’re running. Oh dear. I’m sure her feet hurt from wearing heels all night, but there’s a whole world of better-looking flats she could have chosen. Those flexible ballet flats you fold up in your purse for when you can’t fucking stand the pain anymore, for example. On the upside, a whole bunch of people who’ve never heard of her before are looking at her pretty face and reading the name “Shailene Woodley” in fashion blogs for the first time today, so perhaps the consequences haven’t been all bad. Well played, Shailene Woodley. Well played.
