Chloë Moretz for FLARE Magazine

Posted on July 31, 2014

This cover shot is easily the best picture of Chloë we’ve ever seen.


Chloe-Moretz-Flare-Magazine-September-2014-Issue-Editorial-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (1)Chloë Moretz covers the September 2014 issue of FLARE magazine in Gucci photographed by Nino Muñoz and styled by Fiona Green.


Gorgeous. Hair, makeup, dress and lighting are all doing their jobs. Inside: she talks with the assurance of a teenager about life and such:


On her dating fears: “It’s a tough age to fall in love: people change so quickly.…I don’t want to have to feel like I have to watch my step, ’cause I’m 17 and I shouldn’t have to…[To my friends] I’m like, ‘Dude, you’re wasting away your entire high-school years, and now you’re going to waste away your college years. You’re going to spend your entire life in a relationship and then you’re going to get married…and then you’re dead! So you lived your life in a relationship!’ That’s not my style.”

On her fashion credo: “Just put me in whatever is fun and interesting, things that I won’t be able to wear when I’m 30.”

On the judgmental nature of the fashion world: “People say don’t judge a book by its cover, but if someone wears a crazy outfit, they’re automatically a crazy person. If you wear a tame outfit, you’re automatically a prude….You can be whoever you want through what you wear.”

On her biggest acting challenge: “It seems so silly, but happiness and love are much more spontaneous than heavy, dark, crying emotion; everyone cries. But actually making someone laugh, and falling in love…”


And then she puts on dresses:

We can’t say any of the interior shots match that cover for drama, but she’s styled extremely well here. It’s all exactly the kinds of clothes she looks best in and tends to like. Kind of a shame about the bland catalogue-shoot background. Actresses do better when they have an environment to interact with in a fashion editorial.

    She looks very pretty, she looks her age, and she looks like herself. Shame about the same facial expression in each shot.

  • Rhonda Shore

    Love the red sparkly dress on her.

    • Aidan B

      Agreed, I think that’s my favorite shot.

  • Musicologie

    Phew! What a relief after so many recent missteps. She’s back in “one to watch” territory!

  • Amelia Ross

    fun dresses, bored facial expression. I look forward to her having a long and varied career.

  • KateShouldBeWorking

    Oh, child; I remember when I thought 30 was a million miles away.

    • kimmeister

      But I’m glad that she’s taking advantage of it while she can, rather than trying too look too mature. Meanwhile, I was afraid the Fashion Police were going to arrest me for slipping into a Forever 21 and buying a couple of $2 camis (I am 34).

      • KateShouldBeWorking

        The Fashion Police will have an apocalyptic riot on their hands if they try to keep ladies of any age from cheap camis. I was in there twice yesterday.

        • kimmeister

          I couldn’t believe how inexpensive they were! Back home, I never go into that store. I was just killing time at a mall before heading to the airport. Now I may have to pop in just to check out the camis and maybe a bauble or two.

      • Jen Freeman

        I’m of the opinion that its called “Forever 21” for a reason. No shame.

      • The Counselor

        That’s okay; I got a number of things over the past months of my pregnancy from Forever 21 (including camis in larger sizes) and have had a lot of glee over not only repurposing their want-to-be-too-cool clothes into maternity wear, but announcing my intention at the cashier. And I’m 36! 😛

    • Joanna

      Then you blink and, suddenly, you’re 40. :-/

    • SistaT

      And now I’m looking at it in the rearview mirror and wondering why I dreaded it. My 30s have kicked my 20s’s ass over and over.

      • Leah Elzinga

        soooo much better, amirite?! I feel way younger at 33 than I did from 18-28…

  • Gatto Nero

    “… You can be whoever you want through what you wear.”
    Sounds like she’s learned from the masters.

  • International Model

    My hope is that she gets older, still wears crazy shit, and says, “Whatever. If you can, do.”

    • Sly

      To me, she and Hailee Steinfeld are the only ladies in the “Young Hollywood” scene that can wear something “crazy”, or maybe not considered Conventional and pull it off with this assurance that they may not end up on the best dressed list, but they going to do it, and work it, there’s also a grace that they both have. Which is why I would consider both “Fashion Prodigies”.

      • Thomas

        We’ve seen Chloe fail many times though. I’m not quite convinced that she and Hailer are fashion prodigies. Kiernan Shipka though maybe.

        • Sly

          Well to me Kiernan Shipka is certainly fashionable, she’s got style, I agree she’s also a prodigy. But for me Chloe and Hailee are so much more interesting to see on the red carpet, mistakes and all. And the fashion world is attracted to that.

        • demidaemon

          I’m with you, Thomas. As I put in my own comment, I found that byline farcical.

  • alyce1213

    I’m not agreeing on the greatness of the cover shot. The parted lips and expression in her eyes are not doing it for me. She looks very pretty, but vacant — no life, no youthful spirit.

    • UsedtobeEP

      I actually like the second shot better. I think it shows how unusual her face is. Something about the way her features are put together and the tilt of her ears are interesting to me.

    • Ginmaru

      I would have liked to see her in the red dress on the cover shot. In the second shot, she looks like my cat when he is trying to figure out where his sparkle ball went. I wonder how the first photograph would have been if they angled her head down a bit.

      • alyce1213

        I think it would have been more intense a gaze, better.
        Also, sparkle ball!

  • Kitten Mittons

    The sound bites come off as things she’s heard adults tell her over and over, so she repeats them in an attempt to sound more mature. My little tween niece does this all the time. Ah, kids.

    ETA: she looks great, though.

  • Danielle

    I’ll be the odd duck: I love the second dress better than the cover.

    • kimmeister

      It does have the open neckline we’re always railing about for her to wear. Since when is she a style prodigy?

      • Danielle

        Probably about the same time magazines started assuming we’d be falling all over ourselves to read comparisons about the lesser Kardashian-Jenners.

        • demidaemon

          I saw that and I fear that my eyes have not yet stopped rolling. I may strain something in my disgust.

  • MissFern

    When I’m 30 (and I’m ancient)

  • Miss wks

    sad-eyed girl…

  • Jeff Warhurst

    Is she related to Kristen Bell? Is it possible Kristen Bell’s teenage past self went forward in time to masquerade as this “Chloe Moretz”? Is there a birther movement to prove her identity?

  • Plink

    Come on, girl. You’re young, famous, and cute as a bug’s ear. How about one smile?

  • Tracy Alexander

    Please tell me the Kendall vs. Kylie fashion face-off is some sort of competition where one-by-one the Kardashians are eliminated. Not in a morbid way. Just so we never see them again. Ever.

    • random_poster

      I don’t know. The idea of a Hunger Games-type competition has a nice ring to it. Not sure that we need a winner.

    • Ali2044

      I was hoping for some kind of Cage/Travolta style literal face swap operation. I would get cable just to watch the show that came out of that.

  • KES4K

    As someone who turns 30 in two days…I wish I had worn more crazy s**t when I was younger. But I also don’t feel like 30 marks the end of my ability to experiment with fashion. So many conflicted feels…I’m old.

    • MilaXX

      I’m 50 and still experiment with fashion. You can have fun with fashion forever.

    • MishaFoomin

      I wasn’t allowed to pick my own clothes until my mother died when I was 18. I am wearing the crazy now to make up for lost time, and now that I have the money.

    • FibonacciSequins

      You can experiment with fashion no matter what your age. There’s a blog called Advanced Style that shows street style of women (and the occasional man) middle-aged and older. It’s very inspirational!

      • Ali2044

        That blog is amazing, thanks for sharing! Although I feel like all those people were probably incredibly stylish even when they were young which doesn’t give me much hope (considering I’m 34 and therefore disgustingly old in the eyes of the entire Western world)

        • FibonacciSequins

          From my perspective (51) you are practically a child! And some would say the same about me. In fact, my mother recently told me “You’re a BABY” when I mentioned my age. No time like the present to start experimenting! :)

          • Ali2044

            Oh I know! It’s just hard to remember that sometimes when 17 year old waifs are held up as the epitome of beauty. Honestly, I can’t wait to be an fabulously eccentric older woman with a really great collection of hats.

      • Alicia

        I love that blog. Ari is an interesting man!

    • Alicia

      It took until after I was 30 to get over myself enough to *start* playing!

  • Alicia

    Top notch eyebrow-grooming.

  • MilaXX

    Kudos to whoever did her face. She looks great here. Bonus points to TPTB for not using any duck lip shots.

  • Leah Elzinga

    Personally my favorite shot is the one with the fringe and the hair calling back to each other.

  • Shawn EH

    I guess the clothes are the props? She’s working them, anyway! Loving the straightened hair.

  • ashtangajunkie

    I love how young she looks here! I feel like she’s always trying to look so much older on the red carpet. This is great.

  • Jacob Bowen


  • random_poster

    Chloe looks fab. Brava to the stylists.

  • KT

    Whoa – that cover shot is amazing. I totally agree- best photo of her yet. The inside looks are a bit dull by comparison – she keeps putting on the same dead-eyed expression over and over. Although she’s giving good face in the 2nd to last shot, which is also quite good.

  • PastryGoddess

    That poor horse

  • Anique Ashraf

    Her face completely changes with the straight hair — it looks way more angles. I can’t believe I’m saying this about pin straight center part hair, but she should keep the look.

  • schadenfreudelicious

    She is working the teenage ennui for all its worth…

  • nightsofsun

    well she is certainly no model.. there isn’t a grain of emotion to be found in any of the photos.
    It’s somewhat funny that they can call you a style prodigy, while probably most of the clothes you wear in public are picked or pushed towards you..

  • evave2

    Didn’t we just see the last dress on somebody else?

    I love everything, honestly, she makes the fringe look good. Is everything Gucci? She looks good. And the print-ish skirt is so cute on her.

  • deech_sea

    Super cute! Is it just me, or does she seems slightly cross-eyed?

  • FibonacciSequins

    Love everything but the dress on the cover photo. Looks too much like blue skin, it’s unsettling.

  • marlie

    That Gucci on the cover is HER dress. Gorgeous, Chloe.

  • demidaemon

    Well, the bylines pretty much depressed me completely. “Chloe Moretz: Style Prodigy” is pretty much farcical, and “Kylie vs Kendall” just makes me want to carve my eyes out with a dull spoon.

    I’ll give her a bye on the quotes because she doesn’t know any better/she’s a teenager, but that doesn’t mean they didn’t make my blood pressure go up just a little bit.

    Cover shot is great, but none of the interior shots really do anything for me.

  • Columbinia

    A beautiful girl. But the way she’s styled, well, it’s something the fashion world does, it brings to mind Lolita. She’s a girl making adult clothes look gorgeous. There’s a creepy element to that, particularly when we get to the sexy lady black strappy boots and red sequinned dress. The layout is enthrallingly beautiful, yet a little wrong.

  • Sadie-Ann

    She has now proved she can make a normal facial expression. I’m judging her duck faces double harsh from now on.

    • siriuslover

      Though I wish she had smiled in at least one shot (or the editors chose a smiling shot). These all look like the same face.

  • Victoria Pavlova

    Lost Olsen sister.

  • Avonell

    Amazing shots. Wished it transferred to her in real life.

  • Frank Lithium

    The shots make her look so teen and inexperienced that it’s cringe-worthy.
