Hey guys! Sorry for the lack of updates the last few weeks, just been really busy. I’m going to try and update the gallery as soon as I can. In the meantime, here is an article and a few photos of Chloe modeling for Aeropostale.

At age 15, actress Chloe Grace Moretz is already an ambassador.
It’s for Aeropostale, the youthful fashion brand, and it’s a job that’s likely to come with some clout and influence — especially with teenage shoppers.
Moretz’s new gig was to be announced later Monday. She will be featured in advertisements through next spring, largely wearing clothing she’s selected and styled herself. She will also curate collections in-store and online.
“I get my own section, I got to pull my own clothes. Girls can go and see what I love and what I wear in the shoots. It’s a way for me to be in touch with girls,” Moretz said in a recent phone interview.
Moretz starred in “Hugo” and “The Amityville Horror” and has the title role in the upcoming remake of the horror classic “Carrie.”
The young actress said she sees a shift in her fan base since her Aeropostale ad campaign began appearing in magazines a few weeks ago. She noted her screen roles until now have been in films that typically attract adults. “I was in the airport a few days ago and these girls were reading their Teen Vogues, and then the girls came up to me!”
She describes her own style as fun, flirty and colorful, and she lives in skinny jeans cuffed at the ankle when she’s not working. Most of her style cues come from her mother, but she greatly admires the look cultivated by Michelle Pfeiffer, her co-star in “Dark Shadows.”
“She has the coolest clothes,” Moretz gushed.
Moretz says she hasn’t regretted one fashion choice she’s made yet, whether it’s for the first day of school or a celebrity-filled red carpet. “Fashion is another way to hone your artistic ability and to express your personality.”
(Her favorite back-to-school outfit was in early grade school, she recalls, when she wore a blue dress covered with yellow elephants.)
Choosing Moretz for the brand was ultimately an easy decision, but not one that company officials took lightly, said Scott Birnbaum, senior vice president of Aeropostale marketing and e-commerce. The brand did its homework, seeking input from magazine editors, photographers and other industry insiders.
“When we met Chloe, it was really an instant love affair,” he said. “She has such great style, she can mix it up. She wears great high-end designers and everyday stuff.”
“We think she’s a role model,” he adds. “She’s quirky and actually really funny, and those are things our brand stands for.”
Chloe Moretz arrives at LAX airport in Los Angeles on Saturday afternoon (May 5).
The 15-year-old actress hit up the Big Apple earlier in the week for the premiere of one of her new movies, Hick, and for an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman.
At the premiere, Chloe chatted with Vanity Fair.
“In August I get my permit, so I’ll be kind of driving,” Chloe dished. “I have to. I want to live in L.A.—I don’t really have a choice.”
Already a familiar talent to horror fans for her vampiric turn in Matt Reeves’ Let Me In, Chloe Moretz teams with director Tim Burton for the upcoming Dark Shadows and ComingSoon.net had a chance to speak with the young star. We’ll have the full interview available soon, but we also got a few details about Moretz’s upcoming role as the titular Carrie in Kimberly Peirce’s big screen remake.
“I start that June 1st,” says Moretz. “…It’s going to be very well done. I don’t want to jinx it, but [Peirce] is a genius, genius, genius director. I would never do it with someone that I don’t trust. I trust her more than a lot of the directors I’ve worked with. She’s the right woman for the job.”
Released in 1974, “Carrie” was Stephen King’s first published novel and tells the story of a high school girl who, through telekinetic powers, takes revenge on peers that have mocked her. Though Brian De Palma directed a highly-acclaimed film version in 1976, Moretz says that Peirce’s take sticks more closely to King’s text.
“I’m actually not looking at the original,” she says, “even though De Palma’s movie was one of the best movies ever made. It’s completely iconic and I’m proud to be able to be doing a retooling of it. We’re kind of going off the book. It’s darker and much more psychological. More ‘Black Swan.’ You’re really looking into her mind and it really looks into the relationship of Margaret and Carrie. It’s set in modern time, so it’s a lot different.”
The role of Margaret White (Carrie’s mother) was played by Piper Laurie in De Palma’s version, earning the actress an Academy Award nomination. Last week, word broke that Julianne Moore had been offered the part for the new film.
Most intriguing of Moretz’s comments about the upcoming project was the hint that her Carrie White would offer a very different look for her, physically.
“It’s something that’s very different from me,” Moretz says of Carrie’s wardrobe. “It’s an out of body thing. I’m becoming a totally different person for it. I’m letting go of all of my self-esteem issues and just kind of going into it. You have to.”
Although shooting won’t begin for another month, Moretz and Peirce have already been impressed with the outpouring of fan support and, in particular, the fan-made poster pictured above. Designed by Pierre-Luc Boucher, the teaser was posted to his Deviant Art page and soon found its way to Peirce.
“That was a cool poster!” Moretz laughs. “Kim sent that to me. She said, ‘Oh my god, you’ve got to look at this. It’s really, really, really cool!’ We both felt so pumped. Now we’re chomping at the bit to get in there.”
Carrie is scheduled for release on March 15, 2013. Check back for updates as they become available and catch Dark Shadows in theaters on May 11th.

The 15-year-old actress just recently booked the lead role in the new Carrie remake — and Julianne Moore may be playing her mom!
Bloody Disgusting is reporting that Julianne would potentially play Margaret White, the fundamentalist abusive mother in the flick. Jodie Foster‘s name was also circling the role.
Carrie, an adaptation of the Stephen King thriller, is about the hyperkinetic teenager who gets pushed too far at the prom and wreaks havoc on her fellow high school students.
Chloe Moretz gets playful on the May 2012 cover of Seventeen magazine.
The 15-year-old actress chats with the glossy about boys, adventures and getting sent to her room. Check it:
On getting grounded: “I just got my phone back yesterday. My mom had it for two days. I was supposed to read a book and I really wanted to play Call of Duty. It’s not like I want to go read the hot story in Cosmo and get locked up! No, I get caught or playing video games. I probably play more than any guy does.”
On the guys she does like: “I like guys that are a little bit older, if they are cool and not completely immature…I’ll date one day if I find someone that I want to let into my life enough. I have to feel out the waters and see what’s up.”
On having adventures with Isabel: “Of all the characters I’ve played, I relate the most to Isabel in Hugo. She’s so adventurous and fun. She just loves reading books and those are her adventures. Isabel is a heightened version of my personality.”
