It's no secret that Zoë Kravitz has incredible style—here are 13 of Kravitz's best looks from her red carpet debut to the present day.

Zoë Kravitz is the ultimate cool girl—especially when it comes to her sense of style—she’s slowly become one of the internet’s fashion icons. Since being in the public eye from a young age, she’s no stranger to being on the red carpet (it’s no secret she gets her good looks from mom Lisa Bonet, and effortless cool and nonchalance from dad Lenny Kravitz). Yet, Kravitz has made a name for herself outside of her parents between her incredible acting roles and her stellar style—on and off the red carpet. From her debut at the 1997 MTV Awards as her dad’s plus-one to her present day style, we’ve rounded up 13 of Zoë Kravitz’s best looks, documenting her style evolution.
1997, MTV Awards
Being Lenny Kravitz’s daughter is cool, but matching with him is even cooler. Little Zoë is sporting a leather jacket to match her father’s at the 1997 MTV Awards. This isn’t the last time Zoe’s style would take inspiration from her high-profile parents.
2000, Grammy Awards
While playfully posing for the camera with dad Lenny, Kravitz has paired a brown cowboy hat and brown leather jacket with a plain white tank, blue floral oriental patterned skirt, and blue running shoes. Let’s not forget the black tattoo choker that screams the early 2000s.
2008, Met Gala
Leaning into the 2008 Met Gala theme of Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy, Kravitz is wearing a drapey mint green velvet dress with a one-strap feather detail—this look makes her appear like an ethereal damsel in distress while borrowing style from the glamorous 1920s era.
2013, Night of the Stars
Wearing an all-black look would become a staple for Kravitz. This faux-snakeskin crop top and black maxi skirt duo from Alexander Wang are sleek yet bold on the red carpet for the Night of the Stars fashion event.
2015, Vanity Fair Oscars After Party
This outfit seemingly signifies when Kravitz started to have a little more fun with her looks. This nude netted midi dress from Balenciaga, worn to the Vanity Fair Oscars After Party, is bold and defined. The dress is paired with subtle metallic lace-up wedges and a nude clutch for added elegance.
2017, Big Little Lies Premiere
Kravitz is back to black with this off-the-shoulder Vera Wang dress at the 2017 premiere of Big Little Lies. We’re sad to say that her character, Bonnie, wouldn’t sport this look as she prefers more colourful, bohemian, hippie-inspired pieces—but it’s still a good look for Kravitz.
2017, Emmy Awards
Kravitz is bringing back the colour in this gown from Dior at the 2017 Emmys. The bodice is black, which keeps the look grounded, but the magical rainbow skirt is what makes her stand out in this gown. The feathered texture of the gown is unique and adds an additional dimension to the look.
2018, Fantastic Beasts Premiere
Continuing in colour, Kravitz wore this pink sparkly strapless number from Armani Privé to the Fantastic Beasts premiere. Other than her gorgeous face, the focal point of this look is the ruffled detail in the midsection of the gown. Kravitz is also wearing jade-coloured jewellery, which is a fun contrast to the pink.
2019, Met Gala
This Saint Laurent dress that Kravitz wore to the 2019 Met Gala is a stunner. The heart-shaped cutout is sweet yet sexy as it tastefully reveals most of her upper body, with little inserts covering her breasts. The entire gown is made of out black sequins, which feels on-brand for her evolving style.
2019, High Fidelity Hulu Upfronts
While promoting High Fidelity (a TV show gone too soon), Kravitz is sporting an amazing look, mainly consisting of a tan coat paired with lime green pants and ’60s-style sunglasses—it’s classic street style for the star, who mixes different styles and colours for a look that seems effortless yet chic. This outfit is also clearly inspired by Kravitz’s character Rob, a record store owner living in Brooklyn.
2020, SAG Awards
Before 2020 went downhill, Kravitz was at the SAG Awards serving total regalia and glamour. This peachy strapless dress is custom Oscar de la Renta and compliments the long cream gloves she is wearing. It’s a simple yet stunning take on a royalty meets Old Hollywood-inspired look.
2021, Out with Channing Tatum
2021, Met Gala
The Saint Laurent dress that Kravitz wore at the 2021 Met Gala sparked a lot of controversy online, but still, it was an iconic moment for her. While the sparkling diamond-encrusted mesh-like dress put most of Kravitz’s body on display, she wore it well and with confidence, which is all we can ask for.
