Zoe Kravitz has been a girl crush of mines for quite some time now. The beautiful love child of Actress Lisa Bonet and Rockstar legend Lenny Kravitz, a product of a marriage that lasted for six years. Zoe has built a name and a lasting legacy for her own self as an actress, the frontwoman of her band Lolawolf and modeling.
Zoe has not only appeared in movies such as, “No Reservations”, “X-Men: First Class”, and “Dope”, featuring Chanel Iman, A$AP Rocky, and Diddy‘s step-son Quincy Brown, to Modeling for designer Alexander Wang and collaborating on a jewelry line with the Swarovski crystal company called “Zoe Kravitz for Swarovski Crystallized“.
Following in both her mother and father’s footsteps of acting and music, Zoe began to create music at the age of 16. She fronted a band that she formed in 2009 called Elevator Fight. Elevator Fight performed at the SXSW music festival and also performed at the annual The Roots Picnic in the same year. While in LA filming for the film, “The Road Within”, Zoe started the band LolaWolf, named after her two younger siblings Lola and Nakoa-Wolf.
During an interview with friend Alexander Wang for Teen Vogue, Zoe openly admitted that she would love to write, produce, direct and star in her own movies one day.
“I have so many half-written scripts, ideas that I think are really great. I just don’t have the time to get them off the ground. It makes me upset, because we live in a day and age where you can really develop your own projects now.” Zoe also spoke about the label of being considered a role model and how it “grew” on her. “For a long time I didn’t want that label or that pressure. What shifted recently is when I see girls who know my work or come to my shows and see themselves in me. When I think of my version of a role model, it’s not about being the perfect Samaritan; it’s just being out there and being honest and happily imperfect.“
Whether it’s being a role model, a fashion model, a singer, producer, director, or just being the daughter of one of the most legendary of love affairs, Zoe has the tenacity to be all of that and then some. I enjoy watching her as her career continues to soar up to the highest of depths that it can go, as she remains as humble as can be.
“I’m another human being, floating around out there in the universe and figuring it out, too. If seeing that brings you comfort, or gives you hope, or makes you feel anything— makes you feel not alone — if that is being a role model, then I’m happy to do that.”
