Ever since the very beginning in the ’90s with cover girls like Liv Tyler and Gwen Stefani, NYLON’s always been one to show total and complete support for the latest crop of rising stars. But we’ve got to admit, for this year’s annual Young Hollywood Issue, the magazine outdid even itself by choosing none other than Miss Chloe Grace Moretz (!!) to represent the new guard of up-and-comers. We first suspected something was up several weeks ago when the actress tweeted this photo of her rad pop art manicure, and now we can see the spread in all its fun high fashion glory. Fresh off her recent Teen Vogue stint, where she showed her tough-girl side in tulle coupled with studs and leather, Chloe’s getting playful and punky here with mixed prints, tons of slogan tees, and a complete ’90s style resurgence. Who knows? Maybe Liv Tyler’s 1999 cover really HAS come full circle in 2013. See even more of the photoshoot below!

From the “Dope” Stampt’d LA snapback to her printed Anna Sui jacket to her T.U.K. platforms, let’s just say this entire outfits falls under our ever-growing shopping list of “didn’t even know we needed ’em” category of newfound summery must-haves. Not that you really needed another reminder that flower print is always in style, but Chloe takes cues from Selena Gomez here in a floral-on-floral combo as well as a slogan tee, also by 3.1 Phillip Lim! We might be seeing double today, but in Selena and Chloe’s case, that’s definitely a good thing.

Studs, sequins, prints, and a skirt over pants?! Leave it to this 16-year-old to take teenage rebellion to a whole new level in gear from boundary-pushing brands like Asish and Bess. The result is a kicky mashup of everything that’s young, cool, and unexpectedly fresh. Oh, and that badass expression: SO Chloe Moretz, and so totally priceless.
