Zoe Kravitz on the June 2017 Cover of Allure Magazine

Zoe Kravitz has definitely stepped out of her celeb parents spotlight, Lisa Bonet & Lenny Kravitz, to make a name for herself in Hollywood. You can catch the actress on the June 2017 cover of Allure magazine. On the cover which was shot by Patrick Demarchelier, Zoe's beauty look features a hair crown which was custom-made by the hairstylist, Hair clips (on crown) by Urban Outfitters, tourmaline-sapphire-garnet-and- peridot earrings by Daniela Villegas, her own earrings and a Gold body chain by Jacquie Aiche. In the issue she talks racism, her character in Big Little Lies, her hair and so much more. Continue below to read some excepts from her interview and to see images from her fashion spread. For more on Zoe's feature, visit and pick up a copy on newsstand.

On people's perception of her:
I think people always assume for whatever reason that I’m much more hippie-dippy than I am.

On the difference between & her character Bonnie in Big Little Lies:
I’m certainly not as patient as Bonnie is, the way she takes the high road with Madeline [her husband’s ex, played powerfully by Reese Witherspoon]. I can be quite confrontational at times. Bonnie has an amazing level of compassion; she’s very aware of others’ struggles. I want to do more drama. 

On her role models:
I’d start with my family. Both my grandmothers and my mother. They planted the seeds for me of what it meant to be female. I grew up in California with my mom in Topanga Canyon. My mother had really great girlfriends. Marisa Tomei is my godmother. I’ve always been around strong women, funny women. And my mom’s really funny. Humor is a big thing in my family. We like to laugh.

On racism & her background:
Racism is very real, and white supremacy is going strong. And identity is not something to be mocked or taken lightly. It’s better in her words: I am definitely mixed. Both my parents are mixed. I have white family on both sides. The older I get, the more I experience life, I am identifying more and more with being black, and what that means — being more and more proud of that and feeling connected to my roots and my history. It’s been a really interesting journey because I was always one of the only black kids in any of my schools. I went to private schools full of white kids. I think a lot of that made me want to blend in or not be looked at as black. The white kids are always talking about your hair and making you feel weird. I had this struggle of accepting myself as black and loving that part of myself. And now I’m so in love with my culture and so proud to be black. It’s still ongoing, but a big shift has occurred. My dad especially has always been very connected to his history, and it’s important to him that I understand where I come from.
