With roles in more than 20 moveis, Moretz has already left the starlet phase of her career behind, but the 17-year-old effortlessly assumed the role of 1940s ingenue for her first Allure cover. Carter Smith shot the actress in a studio at New York City’s Chelsea Piers.
Family Affair: A barefaced Moretz, wearing a football jersey style top, jeans, and leather sneakers, brought her brother (and comanager and acting coach) Trevor with her. She went straight to the makeup chair, where Hung Vanngo put a hydrating mask on her face while Allure creative director Paul Cavaco discussed the day’s look –big waves, red lips, and glamorous gowns. Music by Etta James, Marvin Gaye, and the Roots played as Moretz got ready. Two hours later, she slipped on a black Rochas gown and headed to the set.
So Fancy: Between poses, Moretz rapped along to Iggy Azalea (she knew every word). At lunchtime, her mother arrived and everyone headed to the catering table, Moretz chose a lobster roll and asparagus and taught Allure bookings director (and Kick-Ass superfan) Ro Penuliar how to flip a balisong knife (there was no cause for alarm–it didn’t have a real blade). When Moretz stepped into a white, bias-cut Versace gown, it was all business in front of the camera. As she packed to leave, she decided to keep the wavy hair–and headed out with her family. __Alexandra Tunell.
