Zoe Kravtiz is looking stunning and doe-eyed in V magazine wearing pants from Alexander Wang, whom she considers a good friend, and a necklace from her Zoe Kravitz for Swarovski collection. With parents like musician Lenny Kravitz and actress Lisa Bonet, Kravitz has been tackling music, jewelry design and now diving into Hollywood. This summer, she'll appear alongside Will Smith and his son, Jaden, in the M. Night Shyamalan flick After Earth, and apparently she found herself slightly smitten by the younger Smith.

"There were moments that I was hanging out with Jaden and thinking, I can't believe you're 14, I have to check myself, like what I say to you," the 24-year-old actress says. "He has so much personality and so much swag, he is so much cooler than I am. And he's so handsome, I was always like, when you're older, you know, we'll hang out…Nope, that's inappropriate, you're 14."

Kravitz also shared her mom's feelings about her delving into the industry.

"My mom's whole thing was that she wanted me to wait until I knew what I really wanted. She'd always say, 'Once you step into the spotlight, you can't take it back.'"

And with another big budget film on the horizon, it looks like Kravitz is marching full speed ahead and leaving anonymity behind.
