The captivating Chloe Moretz is the star of InStyle's colour-themed shoot for August, modelling bright delights from the likes of Simone Rocha and Jeremy Scott. While she brings a playful spirit to the California motel-set shoot, when we sat down with her to talk about acting and idols, it was clear she's got sass far beyond her 16 years.

While like most teens, Chloe loves hanging out with friends - namely best mate and Jude Law's son, Raff - and shopping - TK Maxx and River Island are her favourites - she's not afraid to takes the horns when it comes to pinning down her next movie roles. Chloe has been taking her own meetings with Hollywood execs since age 15, and explains: “What have I got to be intimidated about? I talk to Donna [Langley, co-chair of Universal Pictures] or someone like that, and they’re like, ‘We’d love to do stuff with you. I’ll tell you our slate, tell us what you’re interested in.’”

But it's clear she's not afraid to ask for advice when she needs it. Carrie co-star Julianne Moore has become a confidant for Chloe, especially when it comes to matters of the heart. Taking about the prospect of falling in love she explains: "You can’t just like someone. They might be using you. I talk to Julianne about it and she says, ‘Look, just be careful. Trust your judgement but don’t get in too deep sometimes.’ Because, you know, when you’re young, you fall in love and don’t know it’s happening.”
