Zoë Kravitz Gets Candid About the Magic of Owning Your Power as a Woman
Zoë Kravitz seems like one of those people who know how to keep their cool in any situation. Whether she’s playing Leta Lestrange in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald or Catwoman in the upcoming Batman film, Kravitz continues to be a powerhouse of talent and shares that with the world.
Kravitz recently dialed into an interview call with the Kit, joining the call after back-to-back interviews and still as thoughtful and laid-back as ever. She is described as cool – and we have to agree that the word describes her perfectly. She also has her own definition:
What I think is cool is when I see someone doing their damn thing and being who they are and not conforming to what society thinks you’re supposed to be.
Kravitz listed off people in her life she considers cool, including her celebrity parents, Lisa Bonet and Lenny Kravitz. She praised their authenticity to be themselves and wants to practice that in everyday life. Not only does she want to master the art of cool, but she also masters a top-notch skincare routine and the approach of owning her power as a woman with no apologies.
We deserve to take up space, and we don’t need to make other people feel comfortable in order to take up space.
If you’re like a lot of us, we’re interested in continuing to own our power as women, and the art of this includes a lot of self-care and feeling good in our skin. In this interview, Kravitz dropped her skincare routine and claims most of her “baby angel” skin comes from eating well, drinking a lot of water, and prioritizing sleep and exercise. She’s a fan of natural face washes and Rhonda Allison cleansers. Kravitz then credited makeup to help complete her smooth skin look. As an ambassador for Yves Saint Laurent, she highly recommends the basics from its line – including foundation, concealer, highlighter, and bold lipstick.
On the subject of bold, Kravitz was asked when she feels most powerful or confident and her advice to other women.
I think, as women, we’ve been taught for a very long time to dim ourselves down and make other people, specifically men, feel comfortable, and I think we’ve got to get out of that mindset. We deserve to have an opinion and to make selfish choices. We’re allowed to be everything that we want to be. We don’t have to make anyone feel better about themselves in order to be who we are.
The interview ended with Kravitz giving the rundown of her perfect day in New York City. It includes eating multiple lunches a day, catching a movie, and dancing.
That definitely sounds like a good day to us. It’s great to hear about healthy habits that can help empower someone else.
