Fact: the pretty blue dress worn by Shailene Woodley in The Fault in Our Stars was purchased at the Beverly Center. The film's costume designer Mary Claire Hannan reveals to Pret-a-Reporter: "It was so funny because I was running around, trying to put other parts of the film together, and I ran into the Beverly Center and I was like, 'I need to get her a dress' [...] I just ran in there and found that one dress at Halston Heritage. I only carried with me one dress to the shoot, and pitched it to the producers." Moral of the story: when in doubt, hit the mall. [THR; Previously]
