Chloë Moretz Is Tiny, Looks Great In Black And White, And Has A Gun To Her Head In 'Interview'

We already know that Chloë Moretz can Kick-Ass, and that she's become Martin Scorsese's new muse (in both the upcoming movie Hugo and in a recent mag spread paying homage to Taxi Driver), but we didn't realize how quickly she's become a major style STAH to watch. She seems to be everywhere wearing the cutest designer red carpet outfits, being snapped by the paparazzi, or hanging out at events like New York Fashion Week. So what's next for a budding ingenue who already has the eyes and ears of the fashion industry? MAGAZINE COVERS, of course! Chloë appeared on one of multiple Love covers in early fall, crying real tears while wearing floral lace, and she's on the new cover of Interview, her giant peepers and perfectly plump lips in a glorious black and white close-up. With an accompanying interview by Drew Barrymore (her director in that Best Coast supervideo we still watch on repeat), and a dramatic ladywear fashion spread that has her looking wayyyyy wiser than her years, we're wondering if all the fashionizing is starting to make the 14-year-old age a little too quickly. Because, really, why is what looks like a REAL GUN being held against her head?

Now, we get that this image is beautifully shot with the light perfect and the shadows just so, but we can't for the life of us understand why there's a big ol' silver gun trying to mount Miss M's forehead like an errant Philip Treacy hat gone way too realistically wrong. The story the fashion spread tells is one of a young girl and what we think is her bodyguard (Secret Service agent?) carrying her around, having her sit on his lap, or taking her for a little leap in the air. She wears a dress by Givenchy and some jewels by Balenciaga, and her hair is parted down the middle and tied behind her head. The eyes are smoky and the expression says, "WUT?" in almost every shot, but WHAT DOES THIS GUN MEAN?? Did the model/bodyguard decide to use it while framing her face for a 2D shot? (The photo shot not a bullet-in-the-head shot.) Does she feel a fever coming on that her bodyguard thinks can be properly measured via a steel-cold magnum (or whatever this firearm is)? Is she looking in a mirror while her BG measures the size of his hand with the size of the gun, her face in the middle for reference? Or is this whole thing the photographer's idea of artsy?

Sigh, we don't know, shoot us. But what we DO know is that Chloë looks lovely and can pull off an older look while not looking like she's playing dress up. Also, the interview with Miss Barrymore is such a joy to read. It's comforting to know that ladies in Hollywood pine after Ryan Gosling, too.
