Glamour – She’s only 22, but Zoey Deutch has already racked up 15 films (Vampire Academy, Everybody Wants Some!!, Before I Fall among them) to cement her status as one of Hollywood’s rising stars. But that only tells half the story: She’s also a producer, activist, and fashion’s newest one to watch, largely thanks to Max Mara. Deutch was handpicked by the Italian label as its 2017 Women in Film Face of the Future award recipient.
Even before Max Mara was toasting Deutch in Los Angeles, though, the multi-hyphenate was featured as part of Net-a-Porter’s 2017 Women in Hollywood shoot for The Edit, had a few Met Galas under her belt, and was already fluent in the fashion-show-front-row squad pose. More crucially, though, she understood the transformative role that style can have on a person. “The most important thing about fashion is that it’s a form of expression,” Deutch told Glamour at the Face of the Future reception thrown in her honor. “It means every single day is different. At an event like this, I don’t want to only feel beautiful, but I want to feel powerful. The right outfit is like a suit of armor and makes you walk differently, talk differently, move differently. I think that’s a real gift, and I feel like that in this [outfit]!”
In a moment of true candor, Deutch then admitted that even though she might look like the epitome of cool in her red velvet blazer over a bandeau top of the same material, “I’m sweating and now my coat’s off and I’m half-naked here!”
Still, the actress knows that being one’s authentic self trumps maintaining an exhaustive image of looking like you’ve got it all together. “The best pictures are when you have life and personality,” she explained. “[Red carpets] can be so scary and constraining that it [ends up having] the opposite effect, so it’s about tricking yourself into not being scared and [transforming] that into being confident and alive.”
Throughout her career, we’ve seen Deutch photographed in brands like Miu Miu, Rodarte, Alexander McQueen, and, of course, Max Mara. When it comes to her day-to-day style, though, you’re more likely to spot her wearing “high-waisted vintage Levi’s, some really old Converse, and a white short-sleeved shirt.” As a public figure, though, she’s very aware of the power of aligning oneself with empowered female designers. “To me, that’s especially meaningful because I am from a family of women in film,” she told Glamour. “My mother [Lea Thompson] is a director and actor, and my sister is a writer and actor. And to get the support of Max Mara is [amazing because] they’re all about empowering and supporting women in the art and film world.” We can’t wait to see more of that.

The Hollywood Reporter – Riding a Wonder Woman high, the Women In Film cocktail party celebrating Face of the Future Zoe Deutch on Tuesday night at the Chateau Marmont was an upbeat affair.
“If I had a superhero movie like that when I was a kid, I would have walked down the street and thought, I can do anything!,” said Deutch, dressed in a red velvet bra top and pantsuit by Max Mara, sponsor of the party as well as tonight’s annual Women In Film gala.
Director Patty Jenkins is undoubtedly Hollywood’s new superhero, scoring the best box office debut for a female director ever. But Deutch is no slouch either.
“To be honored by Women in Film is really special because I come from a family of women in film,” she said, noting that her mother Lea Thompson is an actor and director, and her sister Madelyn Deutch is a writer and actor.
Thompson, who was also at the party, directed her two daughters in the upcoming The Year of Spectacular Men, which is premiering at the Los Angeles Film Festival. Zoey also appears in Rebel in the Rye opening this fall, the upcoming Flower which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival, and she’s currently shooting Set It Up in New York City.
She’s also becoming a bit of a fashion plate (the bra top, she admits was a daring choice). “My style is dependent on my mood. I don’t want to just feel beautiful, I want to feel powerful and ready,” she said. [Fashion] “can make you walk differently, talk differently, hold your head differently, and that can be a real gift. That’s what I seek out when I’m trying to find an outfit for an event like this, which feels like my second bat mitzvah,” she said, popping up from a couch to greet friends.
The one fashion item in her closet she’d never give up? “A Kenzo coat I got on sale at Opening Ceremony. It’s big and black with shoulder pads and embroidered eyes all over it. I wear it when I go to something where I’m not sure I’m going to know anyone. It’s a talking point.”
Zoey Deutch attended, on June 12th, the event of Max Mara called Face of the Future Award in Los Angeles, California. The event was held to honor Zoey as the 2017 Woman in Film Max Mara Face of the Future Award recipient. Check out the HQ pictures below:
