Zoë Kravitz is on fire this year. That dope Allure cover, Big Little Lies, red carpet looks so beautiful they make us tear up. She’s so lit that she’s now Yves Saint Laurent’s newest Global Makeup Ambassador. Fire.
“Zoë will kick-start her new international role with the first of several groundbreaking campaigns — Tatouage Couture,” YSL Beauty shared in a statement. “She is the perfect fit for YSL’s own inventive, defiant, and stylish heritage.”
Kravitz also chimed in on her reciprocal love for YSL saying, “Their ability to combine the chicest of styles with a raw edge has always been to me one of the best ways to express yourself through fashion and beauty. Nothing is forced, nothing is fake, but everything is bold, strong and unafraid. I’m very excited to work with this legendary and timeless company.”
The 28-year-old actress also offered her unique thoughts on makeup: “[Makeup] shouldn’t be something you use to cover up,” she said. “And I feel like YSL Beauty isn’t asking me cover myself up or be something I’m not. Makeup should highlight your individuality.”
So who is Zoë Kravitz? Kravitz is the cool girl who isn’t necessarily right next door, but you definitely wish lived on your block. She’s a badass, she’s a beauty chameleon, she has insanely gorgeous parents, and she’s a free spirit that’s 100 percent contagious. For many of us, she is the ultimate beauty role model. Here are seven reasons why.
1. She’s proud of who she is.
In the June issue of Allure, Kravitz opened up about being “mixed” and embracing her blackness. She explained, “The more I experience life, I am identifying more and more with being black and what that means — being more proud of that and feeling connected to my history. … And now I’m so in love with my culture and so proud to be black.”
2. Her hair is always flawless.
We have seen Kravitz with everything from a platinum blonde pixie cut to ultralong box braids. She’s a mix master when it comes to hair, and she has the ability to seemingly rock every style.
3. She’s a product junkie.
Kravitz is always asked about her favorite beauty products, and she always has lots to say — more than most celebrities. A few short years ago, she shared her entire beauty regimen with the New York Times, and believe us, it’s juicy.
4. She’s the chicest cover girl.
On top of the ultrabuzzy cover Kravitz did for Allure in June, she also posed on a stunning cover for Net-a-Porter’s The Edit.
5. Her photos are superfun to binge.
If you take a scroll through her Instagram feed, it’s loaded with amazing photos that showcase everything from her support for social causes to amazing throwback pix of her beloved mom, Lisa Bonet.
7. The girl’s got good genes.
Lenny Kravitz as dad, and Lisa Bonet as mom? Enough said.
