Chloë Grace Moretz Has Grown Up On the Red Carpet

At just eight years old, Chloë Grace Moretz made her big-screen debut as the young daughter of a couple, played by Ryan Reynolds and Melissa George, terrorized by the supernatural echoes of a recent mass murder in The Amityville Horror. Since then, the actress has grown up on screen and on the red carpet, graduating from youthful princess dresses to the latest from Coach and Miu Miu just as she’s graduated from Amityville to The Clouds of Sils Maria. She’s worked her angles all the while, posing with a coy smile over her shoulder and her hand glued to her waist ever since she was an elementary schooler. This year, she’ll appear in the remake of chic horror classic Suspiria — in honor in honor of the big year ahead, we look back on her most memorable moments on the red carpet.
