When you’re the daughter of Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet, chances are you’re going to be 1) very attractive or 2) super talented. Or both. Enter Zoë Kravitz. The 24 year-old actress/model/singer has made a name for herself over the last few years and she’s only getting started.

For someone who’s just starting out, a lead role in one of the year’s most highly-anticipated films ain’t too shabby. Zoë will star alongside Shailene Woodley and Kate Winslet in the film adaptation of the popular YA series; this could prove to be hugely significant for her career.
