Tuesday, August 8th, Variety held their annual Power of Young Hollywood Party at TAO Restaurant. Awards were presented to some of the most popular, young celebrities in the industry. Two specific actresses who were recognized are Zendaya and Chloe Grace Moretz.
Moretz stunned in a black Marchesa gown with an intricately beaded bodice, embroidered with flowers. She made her look pop with a sultry red lip and her blonde hair styled in soft curls. She has been acting since seven years old and initially gained popularity in the film Amityville Horror. She also has experience in modeling and was the face of Aeropostale in 2012.
Moretz commented on working in the industry from such a young age saying, “As I grew up it’s been more of a conscious decision to make sure my characters represented what I believe in and what I stand for.” She takes the roles she accepts seriously and makes sure that they align with her beliefs and values.
The one name wonder, Zendaya, is a triple threat: actress, singer, and dancer. She wore a pink ombre rhinestoned jacket with matching cropped pants. The jacket was completed with shoulder pads and a ruffle neckline. She kept her hair and makeup simple with a soft dewey look and her signature natural curls. It was truly a look only Zendaya could pull off.
Zendaya first gained notoriety as a Disney Channel star playing Rocky Blue in the sitcom Shake It Up. Her most recent job was playing Michelle in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
She spoke about working in the industry saying, “We all know it’s harder as a female to be in this industry. I need to do my job…to make sure the young women who come up behind me have those opportunities.”
Both Moretz and Zendaya are amazing examples of young women in Hollywood who are working hard to create an easier path for young boys and girls people with dreams of making it in the industry.
