The Descendants actress Shailene Woodley says she is not fond of dressing fashionably. 

The 22-year-old actress, who rose to stardom with The Secret Life of the American Teenager, said she owes her beautiful red carpet looks to her stylist, reported
Contactmusic.

"I don't care about fashion. I have a stylist that does care about fashion and tells me what to wear. I don't own many clothes. I own three t-shirts," Woodley said.

The actress recently starred with Theo James in sci-fi film 'Divergent'. She said that even her c-star does not own many clothes.

"I like to be fairly classic -- you wouldn't see me in a velvet suit. I don't have many clothes - I own 3 pairs of jeans. Practically I just don't have enough clothes to wear different outfits," Theo said.
