The rays are beating down on yet another Californian day of sun, as 21-year-old starlet, Chloë Grace Moretz takes residence beside the leafy pool at The Parker Hotel—one of Palm Springs’ iconic properties serving as the perfect backdrop to shoot to a weekend getaway fashion shoot. Making her on-screen debut aged just seven with 2005’s Amityville Horror, her filmography, which spans blockbuster hits like Kick Ass & Carrie as well as acclaimed indie titles, is nothing if not prolific. With four films already slated for release this year, if anyone needs some downtime it’s Moretz. As such an eloquent and confident woman, it’s little surprise that her creative ambitions go beyond just the next audition.
Discussing career highlights and aspirations that includes photography, a passion which she showcases to her fans on Instagram, Chloë admits that she’s interested in perusing roles behind the scenes whilst giving an exclusive interview discussing her personal style, family and career.

What does the brand mean to you?
Jimmy Choo to me feels like a brand that has always made me feel flirty and sexy, while still being comfortable in myself. My Jimmy Choo’s have always been the perfect accessory to make my outfits uniquely me, be it for a red carpet event or Thanksgiving dinner.
What do you look for in a bag?
It depends on where I’m wearing the bag. If it’s a clutch, it needs to be big enough to hold my lipstick, phone, and wallet. And I definitely need it to be a cross-body, just in case the night leads to dancing.
Whose shoes would you like to step into for a day?
Gloria Steinem. Because she’s always been such an inspiration to me. She stood up for so many things politically that, over the years, were considered controversial to support. She never took “no” for an answer, and stood behind her words and for equality for all.

Social media has put new spin on celebrity, allowing a much more intimate connection. What has been your experience and how do you feel about being in control of the way you share your personal life?
It has always been important to me that I run all my social media accounts myself. I felt from the time I began on Instagram and Twitter that these profiles were extensions of myself, as well as platforms for me to be able to engage with my fans and have my words be spoken directly from me. I’ve found it really exciting to share my love for photography on Instagram, giving my fans a glimpse into my world, from my point of view. On Twitter I’ve, over the years, used it a lot to be able to show my fans the artists/music I’m listening to, which has been different and exciting.
When it comes to ambitions, what are you really prioritizing for your future over the next couple of years?
I’m excited to try my hand at different jobs in this industry, to really dive into being more of a creator than just an actor. From producing through my production company, to co-directing with my brother, Trevor, I believe I will find ways to come in to my own artistic groove over these coming years.
How do you wind down from work?
Just being home with my family and my dogs is the most important respite for me. I also meditate daily to re-center myself and help my brain quiet down.
