Bold Face: Youth & Beauty

Bold Face explores the cult of celebrity and the styles, trends and brands that stars show off in movies, at events and living their daily lives. To be considered for inclusion please contact senior editor, Deirdre Carroll.

Nothing is guaranteed to make Bold Face feel old and unaccomplished faster than a fresh new crop of young Hollywood starlets. While BF wallows in her advancing age and apparent underachievement, enjoy these PYTs and their fashionable frames…

A triple threat, 16 year-old Zendaya Coleman is a singer, actress and dancer, as well as a current Disney darling. She stars on the popular Disney Channel sitcom Shake It Up as Rocky Blue. She has also recently signed a recording deal with Hollywood records. As if that weren’t enough to make people twice her age feel like slackers, she is also a budding fashionista and was featured in Teen Vogue’s Young Hollywood issue in October 2012 as one of the hottest young stars on the rise. Clearly, the teenager has impeccable style as she was snapped here wearing the brand new Chloé CE601S sunglasses from Marchon


The 20 year-old Selena Gomez, who herself covered Teen Vogue in September 2012, took a break from music in 2012 to focus on her acting career. The result was being cast in several films, the next of which is the highly-anticipated Harmony Korine film Spring Breakers alongside James Franco, Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Benson. By all accounts, the film, which deals with armed robbery, drug dealing and general spring break shenanigans, will further help Gomez shed her squeaky clean Disney image. For the time being, she still looks pretty sweet in these Westward Leanings Model N°5 Love Thy Neighbor sunglasses...


While out and about, AnnaSophia Robb could be mistaken for any other girl her age but the 19 year-old has some big Manolos to fill. The fresh faced Robb stars as Carrie Bradshaw, a role made famous by Sarah Jessica Parker, in the CW’s The Carrie Diaries, the new prequel to the seminal Sex & The City series. The show, based upon the series of books also from SATC creator Candice Bushnell, premiered on Jan. 14 and so far has delighted audiences; which may explain why the Teen Vogue February cover model is all smiles in her D&G DD6047 sunglasses from Luxottica.
