Meet Zoey Deutch, Hollywood’s Hottest Rising Star

GOTHAM MAGAZINE – Unafraid and unrehearsed, Zoey Deutch is the most down-to-earth rising star born to two ’80s Hollywood powerhouses you’ll ever meet.

Zoey Deutch is stuck in traffic. The Los Angeles native is clearly accustomed to gridlock, because she proceeds to describe it over the phone with the smooth and appraising air of a connoisseur. “I’m not sure if you’re familiar with L.A. traffic, but it is the most fun,” she jokes. “A thrill.” Seconds later, the actress briefly interrupts our conversation to honk at an aggressive driver who has just darted into her lane (I can hear the beep of her horn—it’s quick and direct, as even-tempered and levelheaded as a honk can get). “I’m so sorry this is happening,” Deutch apologizes. “Thank you for going with it. You’re so nice.”

Alexa | The New York Post Interview

Zoey Deutch goes from Disney star to vigilante

ALEXA | NEW YORK POST – Zoey Deutch has more famous dopplegangers than she can count. Rose Byrne, Keri Russell — “When the poster for ‘The Americans’ was on Laurel Canyon [Boulevard], two of my acquaintances texted me, ‘Congratulations on your show!’ ” — laughs Deutch, as she settles into a couch with a big hoagie sandwich after her Alexa cover shoot in Downtown LA. The actress, 23, has been told she looks like Isla Fisher so many times that she sought her out at a recent benefit. “I was like, ‘I know you get this a lot — my name is Zoey, we look alike,’ and she was like, ‘Really?’ and I was like, ‘Ugh!’ It was pretty embarrassing.”

InStyleMy tip to styling/accessorizing a tunic…
I easily ruin fine jewelry when I’m at a beach or in the ocean, so that trend of pairing delicate pieces with tunics is definitely lost on me. So instead of fine/thin bracelets or necklaces, I like a few big chunky vintage turquoise rings that I got at estate sales. Especially when it’s a high quality tunic, I like to add something different to it—mix high with low.

My summer playlist includes…
Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN.

My bohemian icon and why…
Kate Moss is the queen of melding bohemian with glamour and effortlessness.

Met Gala: 5 minutes with Zoey Deutch

Met Gala: 5 minutes with Zoey Deutch

Tory Daily – 2017 is turning out to be a busy year for Zoey Deutch. She’s already graced the big screen in Before I Fall and had a trio of film-festival debuts in a few months: Rebel in the Rye at Sundance, The Disaster Artist at South by Southwest and Flower at Tribeca. Also in the pipeline: the Netflix comedy Set It Up and and The Year of Spectacular Men — the latter of which is directed by actress Lea Thompson (A.K.A. Deutch’s mom). On Monday night, she clocked in one more high-profile appearance for the year: The Met Gala, wearing a custom gown and hand-cut and -enameled disk earrings by Tory. Before the event, Deutch took a break from her busy schedule to chat with us.

My first fashion love…
The one that I can remember bodes well with the theme of this year’s Met Gala actually: a vintage camel-colored, long Comme des Garçons skirt and matching coat that my mom had in the Eighties and kept. It’s so beautifully made. There wasn’t a chance that I fit into it, but I tried my best to make it work. And colorful butterfly hair clips, of course. Those were my jam around age four.

My personal styling tip/trick…
I like to pair high with low. I like to add a weird vintage piece that I got at a vintage store to something maybe a little fancier. And my personal styling tip/trick for going to a fancy-shmancy party is to always pack an extra pair of comfy shoes, usually sneakers, to leave in the car.

Favorite Met Gala memory…
Fitting in my dress and not tripping up the carpet. And bumping into one of my best friends Chloe Moretz right when I walked in.

Zoey Deutch Used to Raid Her Mother’s Closet for Vintage Comme des Garçons

Zoey Deutch Used to Raid Her Mother’s Closet for Vintage Comme des Garçons

W Magazine – On Monday night, in a suite at The Pierre in New York, up-and-coming actress Zoey Deutch was getting ready for the annual Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala. This year’s theme was “Rei Kawakubo / Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between” — and Deutch wanted to be dressed appropriately. “I really wanted to stay on theme,” she said, admiring her dress. “That was the one thing I was really interested in.”

Her white, floor-length gown, a custom creation by the designer Tory Burch, is a nod to Kawakubo’s signatures: it has a sleek silhouette and oversized sleeves, but comes in a Burch-approved organza tulle. To complement the look, Deutch wore her hair in a low bun, and kept her makeup minimal, with just a flash of peachy, coral color across each eyelid and her luminous skin.

“Who needs to get married?” laughed the 22-year-old starlet. “I will have been to the Met Ball twice now! I could just get married in my pajamas and I wouldn’t care.”
The first time she attended the Met Gala, Deutch didn’t quite know what to expect. “I didn’t really know that many people last year so I was nervous, but then I walked in and ran into one of my best friends, Chloe Grace Moretz, like immediately,” she said. This time around, she’s fresh off the big debut of her latest film at The Tribeca Film Festival, Flower, with several other new projects in the works, including Rebel in the Rye and a new Netflix project with Glen Powell titled Set It Up. The chances are high that she will see more than a few familiar faces at this year’s fete. “I know more people now!”

As she talked, a crowd of people arrived to steam her dress once more and make all the last-minute adjustments. Meanwhile, her glam squad was finalizing Deutch’s accessories with Tory Burch’s team, looking through an edit of box clutches and various statement earrings. “I am still deciding about the accessories,” she said as tried Fred Leighton pearl earrings and then swapped back to the big, white circular earrings (by Tory Burch) she had been keen on earlier. As she slipped on black Dries van Noten heels, she said, “Aren’t they great? I picked the out yesterday at like 6 p.m.”

Here, she talks to W exclusively about how her final look came together, wearing Comme des Garçons at age 11, her obsession with Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and more.

Did you have a vision for the look tonight?
We wanted to stick with something minimalist to pay homage to Rei [Kawakubo] and Comme, but also stay true to the Tory Burch brand. It’s just a minimalist, white silhouette. It’s really chic and comfortable and feels really on point with the theme, but also very Tory.

How did you end up going with Tory Burch?
I respect and love Tory so much, and love what she represents. She stands up for what she believes in. It was a little last minute because I have been shooting and working so much lately…but I love the dress so much.

What was most important to you with this dress?
I really wanted to stay on theme. That was the one thing I was really interested in.

What was your first interaction with Comme des Garçons?
This is going to sound like I am making this up because it is so perfect for this moment but I swear to god it’s real. My mom [actress Lea Thompson] has this unbelievable vintage Comme, it is like this high waisted, floral and beige button-up skirt and it has a matching trench coat. I remember being like 11 and trying to steal it from her but obviously it didn’t fit in the way that it should have. I just loved the silhouette and how beautiful and interesting and innovative it was. That was my first encounter with the brand.

Amazing! Did you ever try to steal it again when you were old enough to fit into it a little better?
That skirt is actually in my closet now. It was wholesale! Mom’s wholesale boutique, I stole it from her.

Mom’s wholesale boutiques are the best kind of store. What is your take on Comme des Garcçns’ Rei Kawakubo now?
I remember hearing a quote that she said a long time ago and she said that in all her years of designing, she never once thought about fashion. I thought that was really beautiful. She is an artist, the opposite of conventional, she is true to her own artist. That is so very admirable.

This is your second Met Ball now. Are you a little less nervous than last year?
I know more people this year! So… yeah. Hopefully there are people that I do know who show up.

Are you excited to see anyone in particular tonight or what are you expecting?
I am expecting the unexpected. I am really looking forward to seeing the exhibition and run around and appreciate it.

Your film, Flower, just had a big debut at the Tribeca Film Festival. What’s next?
I have a movie coming out in the fall called “Rebel in the Rye” and I am coming back here this weekend to shoot a movie called “Set It Up,” it’s a romantic comedy for Netflix.

Prior to attending the Met Ball for your first time, did you follow the red carpet fashions at the event?
Yes, definitely. My sister and I would pick out the outfits we loved the most.
Do you have a favorite outfit that someone wore in the past years that was a highlight for you?
Anything and everything Mary-Kate and Ashley. I love everything they wear. L-O-V-E!
