Mostly Well Played: Chloe Grace Moretz


well-played

CGM here just turned fifteen in September. I was nowhere near this pulled-together when I was her age. Then again, the only “people” I had was whoever happened to be working at The Gap or Express that day.

    I’m sorry, but that 15 year old looks older than my 29 year old self in half those photos. WHYYYYY?!!!

    Wow she really likes those strappy sandals…
    All in all, she looks terrific for her age.

    I unfortunately get the vibe from her that she will be heading for a spin down Lohan Boulevard. You can see it in her eyes – she wants this so so bad. There’s almost a desperation and a TRY happening there.

    I wish she would relax a little bit and maybe hang out on Hailee Steinfeld Parkway and Dakota Fanning Street. The clothes are lovely and fit her well without being too short or too exposed.

      Nah, she’s from a way too sane of a family, for starters. Wouldn’t make too much of her facial expressions in 2 random photos. Plus, she seems very normal and adorable on Twitter. For some reason I really think all those youngsters (Breslin, Steinfeld, Olsens, Watson, Moretz, Fannings – all of whom I cherish) will be just fine.

        Olsens? MK and Ashley Olsen? They are youngsters? I know Elizabeth is young-ish maybe kind of…

          Umm, well old they are not. Unless you consider 25 not young. Which would be insane.

      Nah, she’ll be fine. She’s a very smart, mature young lady. And she’s been doing quality work since she was about nine. Work that shows talent, unlike Lindsay.

    I find it utterly shocking that she didn’t spring forth from Michelle Pfifer’s loins. But I do think she is killing it more often than not. Not too twee, not too crazy, not too sexified- right down the fashionable middle.

    Yeah -she looks mostly awesome (and as you say, incredibly pulled together); but some looks were a little too mature *clutch pearls* for 15.
    Fanning girls are good models as you say…. not Taylor Momsen or Blohan..

      Where do you see clutch pearls?

        Heheh She means that she (the commenter) is clutching her pearls like a fussy old lady.
        Apologies if you were merely kidding, I can’t tell and I need a drink. :)

    I love that she got some serious use out of those strappy shoes. Stars: They’re Just Like Richer Versions of Us!

    This might sound weird, but girlfriend has some seriously great leg muscles! Even when I was doing gymnastics 9 hours a week, my legs were not that great! I wonder what she does. Like, they look curvy and toned, but not like, creepy lady body builder toned. I’m jeal.

    She kind of looks like an Ashley Olson in the last one. Or maybe Elizabeth Olson. Not witchy enough to be Mary Kate.

      Throughout the slideshow, I kept thinking she looked like a Lost Olsen. I mean, not lost in the sense that the actual Olsens are lost (the twins, anyway) but lost in the sense that she could play their younger-sister-who-was-stolen-at-birth in a movie.

        Me three. And the Stolen Olsen lived with a family that had hairbrushes and color in their home.

    Something is happening where I actually like her outfit in the last slide, including the socks. It’s young and cute and she’s pulling it off somehow!

    I love a well-deployed pairing of socks and heels. Heinous, I know.

    The velvet is seasonally appropriate given that it was the European premiere (I think): it is baltic cold here right now! It’s like February.

    “And she’s definitely learning to give dramatic face.” She makes this face ALL THE TIME. I’m starting to wonder if she was born making this face. It’s the one thing I really dislike in her as an acctress: in every scene she is always posing, it’s never natural.

    Great style, though.

    The trouser socks are on trend, and in this case she’s deployed them with taste and reserve. I think she looks super great in that photo. But for pete’s sake, can the girl not have her own hair colour? Who on earth told that child her own hair colour was not good enough? She’s at least too young to have it that fried looking.

      Seriously, I was wondering that too. You’re fifteen! Dye your hair some crazy technicolor shade once and then let it go unprocessed and undyed! Trust me, your hair will thank you fifteen years from now! This young lady is too pretty and fresh-looking to let her hair age via bottle blonde.

    She has said her parents won’t let her buy designer clothes. I feel like this bodes well for her future. Unless she turns 18 and goes crazy because she can. Heh.

    It’s insulting to even use Lohan’s name in the same breath as Moretz’. Chloe’s as classy and well-behaved a kid as you are going to find anywhere. Don’t let the fashion model glares and poses fool you.

    I love the outfits (except for the socks…), and I doubt she’ll head down Lohan La (see what I did there, Fug girls?)…

    Because she’s actually been acting and doing well for years – she is not an upstart. And from IMDB: “My mom has always said that if I get a big head, she’ll take me out of this business as quickly as I got into it”

    I thought she was really cute in (500) days of Summer – but yes, I too, sense “bad seed” when she gets all pose-y. Which is too bad, because half the time she looks totally adorable.
    I actually like trouser socks in this way. J.Crew went insane with it a few catalogues back, they really wanted it to take, but I haven’t seen it much since.

    Wow. She is looking a LOT like Meg Ryan in slide 5.

    I dunno. If my 13 y.o. daughter wanted to wear any of these outfits, we’d have the following conversation: I would try to explain that even though the dress is very cute, and she’s not showing any skin, and the skirt isn’t too short, it’s just too adult for her. And she’d want to know why, and I’d say that I didn’t really know how to explain better than that, and then she’d stomp off, muttering under her breath.
    And yeah, I know there’s a big difference between 13 and 15 in teenage girl world, but still.

    She looks great, I think these are fine for her age – have seen girls about her age wearing similar things to class graduations and weddings, that sort of thing, and they always look nice.

    As for the face, well she can really ACT, so I hope she manages to keep it up and not go off the rails, I have high hopes for this one.

    Those Jimmy Choos must be comfortable.

    This bitch..is so pretty. Can’t believe she’s 15. Freaks me out a bit.

    The dresses went downhill slowly from the first slide. The first two were cute and the last was ok, but I don’t like the attempt at the sexy/grumpy face in the last one.

    These were all pretty terrible & no one I know who is 15 would wear any of them (not for he adult part either) except for the last, that’s kinda cute

    I kinda like the trouser socks! But only in this one case, and only because she’s 15.

    She looks great and is very pretty and all, but… but…. Why is she never standing straight? She has some kind of Gollum vibe with the chin pointed forward and the weird gummy-looking neck and the half grin and beady eyes… Super creepy!

      I think that’s a really unkind comment to make about a 15 year old girl. ‘Gummy looking neck’ , ‘Gollum vibe’ like WTF?

      Why don’t you stick to commenting on what she’ s wearing.

    I think she definitely looks like a Fanning in slide 3!
