In recent years, Zoë Kravitz has cemented herself as one of the most stylish women in Hollywood. The 33-year-old effortlessly moves from wearing the naked dress of dreams at the Met Gala (a sequinned Saint Laurent look that was, according to Google, the most searched-for outfit of every celebrity attendee at the 2021 event), to her The Row uniform, to hoodies and sweatpants. So it only makes sense that for her latest magazine cover, Kravitz managed to make a tuxedo look sexy — moreover, one that’s shot only from the waist up.
For GQ‘s latest issue, Kravitz is shot wearing a black velvet blazer, a matching oversized velvet bowtie and a white shirt, all courtesy of Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello (Kravitz is an ambassador of the house). Ditching her signature brunette hair, Kravitz is instead shown with yellow-blonde curls, which are juxtaposed with her beauty look: bronzed eyes with black liner and similarly bronzed lips with a shiny gloss over the top. Kravitz’s look is completed with sparkly diamond earrings and a rose broach pinned to her right lapel.
Though she looks incredible, it’s not the shoot but the interview it’s coincided by that’s got people talking: for the first time, Kravitz gets candid about her relationship with Channing Tatum, who she’s widely rumoured to have been dating since some now infamous paparazzi shots in 2021 saw her riding on the back of his BMX through the streets of New York.
The pair, whose relationship no doubt began while they were working together on Kravitz’s upcoming directorial debut Pussy Island, have since been photographed together on numerous occasions, including at the 2021 Met Gala, but this marks the first time either one has publicly confirmed their relationship (beyond Tatum following multiple Kravitz fan accounts on Instagram, that is. Get you a man).
“He’s just a wonderful human,” Kravitz says in the piece of Tatum. “He makes me laugh and we both really love art and talking about art and the exploration of why we do what we do. We love to watch a film and break it down and talk about it and challenge each other.”
Kravitz added that the first movie the pair dissected together was the 1993 romantic crime drama True Romance (cc: Kravis). They also both look up to legendary Hollywood couple John Cassavetes and Gena Rowlands who worked together on many projects while Cassavetes was still alive. So, we’d say Pussy Island won’t be the last time we see their names paired together on the credits.
Thankfully, despite many couples struggling to work together, the two get along on set well. “Whether it was making me tea or pouring me a drink or going to whip someone into shape or whatever — he really was my protector and it was really wonderful and sweet,” Kravitz said. “I think if you can do something like that together, it’s a good test. And we came out even stronger.”
