Chilling out in a denim shirt, lace hot pants, and a pair of retro roller-skates, Shailene Woodley looks super SoCal cool on the June cover of ASOS magazine. The TV-turned-film actress, who can still be seen regularly on The Secret Life of the American Teenager, has been having quite the year. Remember that elegant white Valentino gown she wore to the Oscars or those mega controversial Vibram Five Finger shoes she wore with a glam black gown? Yeah, Shai-Wood has made some SERIOUS fashion news this year, which is refreshing in the seen-it-all-before world of awards season. Miss Woodley continues to stand out on the red carpet as she does for ASOS mag, where she opens up about her low-key beauty regime, passion for film, and dreams of playing rock legend and enduring style slayer Patti Smith.

She tells ASOS that she prefers laid-back basics like jeans and sweats, but was totally into her white Oscar gown even though she was criticized for it. “A lot of people didn’t like it. They were like, ’She’s 20, she’s covering herself up, why is she doing that?’ But to me it felt classy and elegant, and that’s what I think of when I think of the Oscars.” We thought the exact same thing! Also, it’s pretty rad that at least one young actress in Hollywood dresses like the rest of us (aka ripped boyfriend jeans and an old t-shirt) on her day off. We’re diggin’ these silky PJs above, too, which seem very Woodley-esque as well as the red and white striped t-shirt which is sporty yet feminine with a touch of lace.

Um, hello perfect denim vest! Not only is this just the right shade of stone wash grey, it’s also advertising The Stone Roses, one of our favorite forgotten bands of the ’90s. *Thumbs up* to pairing it with a pale maxi dress and au natural hair. Everything about this look is perfect, and we like the hint o’ rock and roll edge for Woodley. Seems she’s into punk rock, too, and tells ASOS, “I would love to play Patti Smith in a film one day—I’m re-reading her autobiography. I’m obsessed with it.”

Rounding out the retro shoot is yet another breezy boho Cali dress paired with a pink and black leather rockabilly jacket. ASOS even Instagrammed a behind-the-scenes pic of the look with the quote, “ASOS loves ya Shailene Woodley!” Awww. We’re not surprised she turned on the charm; it seems effortless for her, as does her sense of badassery. She admits to having a thing for The Hunger Games and tells ASOS she wants to become “a badass archer” like Katniss. A bow-and-arrow slinging punk rock princess? Someone needs to write this movie! Until then, check out Shailene Woodley’s throughly enjoyable interview in the upcoming issue of ASOS mag. Did we mention she forages in the forest for food?
