It’s fitting that the young, quirky and stylish Zoe Kravitz would cover Asos Magazine. Asos, a popular U.K. fashion and beauty retailer, sells boho-chic clothes for the youthful, fashion-conscious crowd that could easily make their way into Zoe’s wardrobe.
Star of the film X-Men: The First Class which will be released this Friday, Zoe models hipster trends like menswear, tophats, sheer oversized blouses, fringe and stripes.
The daughter of the equally-stylish Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet, Zoe spoke to Asos Magazine about her new movie, her “It Girl” status and how she used to be embarrassed by her parents’ style.
On being labeled an “It Girl”:
“All that ‘it girl’ shit makes me kind of uncomfortable. I’m only at the beginning of my career, but I feel successful in that I haven’t sold out in any way, shape or form. I feel good about the choices I’ve made, and I don’t feel like I’ve let go of any of my values. Fame has become this obsession for people, which kind of creeps me out.”
On filming her new movie, X-Men: The First Class:
“We (Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, and boyfriend Michael Fassbender) were living in London for four months and it was like X-Men summer camp, so we all hung out at each other’s houses after filming, went out to pubs…I lived in Notting Hill, right by Portobello…I’m spending all my money on flea-market shopping!”
On her parents’ quirky fashion sense:
“I used to be a little embarrassed by how she (mom Lisa Bonet) and my dad (Lenny Kravitz) would dress…but now I steal their clothes all the time.”
We love that she went from being ashamed of her parents’ style to embracing their fearlessness and creativity with fashion.
