Two of today’s brightest young actresses in Hollywood seem to have taken a liking for a rather goth-inspired look, which is also quite weird seeing as it is the middle of the summer season.
Both Shailene Woodley and Lily Collins wore their own versions of an all-black ensemble that consisted of a cropped top and midi skirt during some of their promotional work—Shailene for her new movie The Spectacular Now and Lily for her new Seventeen Magazine cover. Shailene, 21, wore a Proenza Schouler Resort 2014 outfit while Lily, 24, went for a Céline Pre-Fall 2013 leather skirt.
Needless to say, both these young actresses still look utterly gorgeous but it would’ve really been so much better had they gone for more uplifting and colorful hues—don’t you think so?

So who do you think wore their all-black outfit better? Honestly, it might’ve been a sure tie but Shailene’s turtleneck top kinda lost her some points on the overall effect of the outfit because she ended up looking rather matronly.
