The beauty and style evolution of Zoë Kravitz, from fresh-faced teen to goth-glam queen
It was pretty much written in the stars that Zoë Kravitz would be a style icon. With actress and bombshell Lisa Bonet for a mother, and musician Lenny Kravitz as her dad, it would’ve been a radical move for her to NOT play around with her style. Luckily for all of us taking notes at home, she has consistently pushed the envelope when it comes to her fashion and makeup choices. What we love the most is how Zoë’s artful style choices always manage to feel fully her. Zoë’s fashion phases don’t feel like a game of dress-up, but more like an extension of herself.
Since Zoë’s birthday is on December 1st, we figured it would be the perfect time to celebrate her life by doing a deep dive on her beauty evolution throughout the years. Whether she’s wearing ornate jewels in her septum piercing or trading in her long mane for a pixie cut, Zoë is not shy about branching out her looks. We have full faith she’ll keep up her streak of creativity as she enters her 30s, but as of now, there are already so many fun looks to explore.
She is such a baby here! Teenage Zoë was fully channeling a business-punk vibe here: We’ve got the nylons, the leather jacket, the decked out jewelry and the velvet hat tying it all together. Her hair and makeup look here feels very fresh and soft, with the long loose waves and minimal makeup.
She is fully embracing the bold lip as an accent here, and it really pops with her sleek, back bun. The outfit itself is very pared down, and looks more clean-cut than a lot of her recent ensembles.
Speaking of bangs, Zoë is fully working the caramel-colored fringe. Even though she’s decked out with red nails and statement rings, her makeup is still minimal—with a neutral lip and just a bit of highlighter.
Zoë is once again flexing her ability to look good in berets, which is a feat we support since they’re hard to pull off. This black, mesh, monochrome outfit with the beret has cool “French girl” vibes.
Zoë is serving us some serious face in this look. She’s rocking a lovely pixie and minimal makeup, except for her red lip. The oversized blazer paired with her deep blue evening gown gives her outfit a more playful feel.
Once again, Zoë knows how to accessorize a blazer. This sheer black bra paired with the creamy white blazer feels both bold and minimal at once—a rare combination. Her hair is a bit longer and braided to the side. She opted for more dramatic makeup with her smoky eye.
This laid-back outfit is a mood. The pigtail braids, septum piercing, smoky eye and contour really tie everything together.
Goth Zoë is truly breathtaking; she fully went in with this outfit. The mesh top, floor-length skirt, and statement jewelry pieces complement her bold lip and dewy skin.
She made a drastic hair change with full platinum blonde. Even more? She got bangs and chopped her hair into a bob. The bold lip really gave this beauty look an old-Hollywood vibe.
Zoë continued to channel the blonde bombshell vibes in this low-cut red gown. She kept her makeup minimal with a nude lip and glowy skin.
Zoë is a vision here in all-white ensemble. This look feels both elegant and natural, with the golden earrings serving as an accent. She elevated this outfit with shimmery eyes, dewy skin, and nude lipstick.
Zoë returned to blonde and stunned in braids. As for her makeup, she kept it fresh-faced with a hint of gloss and highlight.
She’s keeping it classic with this monochrome look. We love the contrast of the all-black and her platinum braids. Her natural makeup give the outfit a sophisticated, yet effortless feel.
This hairdo is everything. As you can see, her hair is blonde and shoulder-length—she added braids to her roots and left the ends in old-Hollywood curls. Zoë’s classic red lip give it that extra bit of glamour.
The actress is serving us high-fashion realness with this black tulle number. Her messy pixie and bold red lip take the outfit to the next level.
Zoë looked like a real life princess at the Fantastic Beast red carpet. She added a touch of pink to her lips, eyes, and cheeks, which perfectly complemented her pink gown.
