We’ll always obsess over Chloe Moretz as the adorable, precocious little sis in 500 Days of Summer, but here’s a newsflash for you: the Georgia-born actress is all grown up, and she’s got the style sense to prove it. The 15-year-old has already rocked chokers with ball gowns, rubbed elbows with designer wunderkinds like Jason Wu, and even scored MaxMara’s “Face of the Future Award.” Not bad for somone who hasn’t even gotten her driver’s license yet, right? Now she’s really putting the nail in the fashion coffin (pun intended) with her new ‘70s vampire movie, Dark Shadows.
Chloe stars in the Tim Burton comedy as Carolyn Stoddard, a rebellious teenager who’s way more interested in tuning out to Alice Cooper than dealing with her weird new relative (played by Johnny Depp), who has recently returned…from the dead. With Burton’s signature zany stamp, the big-screen adaption of this cult ’60s TV show is a total feast for the eyes, all topped off with some amazing retro outfits, obviously. Turns out we’re not the only ones in love with the clothes- Chloe’s been spotted doing press for the film in ’70s-inspired garb her character Carolyn would die for.
At the movie’s premiere in Los Angeles, she stepped out in a midnight blue jacquard Stella McCartney frock, complete with a Farrah Fawcett-esque middle part (hellooo ’70s beach babe!). It’s strikingly similar to the jewel-toned outfit she wore in the film’s promo images, and not the first time Chloe has taken cues from her character. At the film’s after party, she rocked a Proenza Schouler patterned dress in a cheery mustard yellow- sort of a Brady Bunch throwback, but the type of ensemble Marcia Brady would only dream of wearing. The actress also struck a more subdued note on The Ellen Degeneres show yesterday, wearing a gray sweater over a white Peter Pan collared blouse….almost a dead ringer for the gray and white dress she wears in the film. Bottom line? Life imitating art: it’s happening (again).
