Zoe Kravitz: Do I Have to Look Like a Perfect Barbie Doll?

Zoe Kravitz wears a beanie and off-shoulder sweater while out on Monday (May 7) in New York City.

“I feel like everyone thinks that everyone should look the same – clean cut. If I go to a party and my hair’s messy and my shirt’s ripped or whatever, it’s like, ‘She’s a crackhead.’ I’m like, ‘Do I have to look like a f—— perfect Barbie doll?’” the 23-year-old actress told Nylon‘s May issue, which she covers with Bella Heathcote and Juno Temple.

“The cool thing about fashion is that if you do it right, it’s an art form and it’s a way to express yourself,” Zoe added.

Why couldn’t race be brought into it? Her race, as well as her jewish upbringing makes her an outcast to the typical hollywood blond barbie doll stereotype. I rather someone who’s dark skin be featured on this site than another blond white girl walking around shopping. There needs to be representation of other aesthetics and if it is Zoe, then so be it. She doesn’t look very glamorous in pap shots, she’s dress very dowdy compared to say amber heard, so if she calls the paps, it’s disadvantage to her. She’s a tabloid favorite, so jj feature her a lot. she’s dating sean penn, friends with celebrities and has famous parents. her life is interesting, so what. just scroll along instead of complaining about her. complain about all the blond boring girls that this site is filled to the brim with.

c’mon not all the girls in this business are white/blonde/christian. There are red heads, there are brunettes, there are AA, there are Asian. she doesn’t feel she’s dicriminated because of her jeweish ubringing or her skin color – she’s talking about her style which in fact doesn’t look well on her and we say that it’s not her style that bothers us – it’s her dirty look.

Her dirty look is what makes her her. It doesn’t suit a blond white barbie doll looking girl, but it suits her, the roles she takes suits that type of aesthetic, no one is going to hire a perfect barbie doll actress to play a mutant stripper who cross over to the dark side and betray her friends. The majority of actresses in HW are blond white barbie doll looking girls, it looks to me like she wants to differentiate herself from them because she knows she can’t compete or has to work 10 times harder to compete. Dirty look doesn’t mean she is dirty, but it fits the stripper girl role she usually go for and successful at getting.

OK whatever rocks for her. but let me just say for the record this dirty look doesn’t look good on anyone – blonde, Asian, brunette, AA, jewish, Irish, Russian. ppl should take shower. Besides this whole thing in Hollywood – when ppl are divided into two groups – one over glitterz and the other pretends like they are homeless. If it’s their way of showing that they are just like other ordinary ppl who don’t do blockbusters and stuff, it actually offends us because it’s like the way some rich ppl see us. It’s even more offending than looking at Paris Hilton, dressed all in pink. Anyway, back to the point, the majority thinks that Barbie Doll look is soooo outdated and not many men find it attractive, in fact none. so in this case I literally have no idea to whom Zoe is referring to, who her critics are. may be it has to do with the comparisons to Blake Lively who is Penn’s ex. but she is no Barbie. Otherwise shall we call all blondes Barbies just because of their haircolor?

Her look isn’t dirty, IMO. It’s very casual, comfy style, It may not look good to you, but I don’t think she would consciously buy or wear something that she doesn’t think looks good on her. It’s a matter of taste. She will never conform to the perfect barbie doll standard because she isn’t blond, white, and skinny.
Instead of complaining how people dress, we all should be more accepting of diversity in clothes choices.

OK you convinced me. I will not be judgemental when it comes to clothing unless it’s fur or leather

@BEAN:

Damn… so much peopl think like you… this wolrd is crazy.

Wtf is wrong with your kind of people. Not to care about looking messy or not has NOTHING to do with pride. Nothing. It’s about not to care about people’s look, sorry but that’s pretty great in this days
