Black-ish's Yara Shahidi is an it-girl now!

28 February 22:42

Yara Shahidi is growing up into a stunning young woman, and the media is enjoying every minute of getting to know the 17 year old Black-ish actress!

Now that she has been roped in by Beyoncè to be the face of her clothing label IVY PARK, she's sort of become one of the most sought after young thespians in Hollywood, which is evident in all the interview she's been doing.

One such interesting Up and Close recently happened between 'Zoey' and Elle Magazine US. In it, she reveals every interesting detail about herself, including her current fashion obsessions, what keeps her going and some of her memorable photoshoots as a model.

And on whether her personality bears any similarity with Zoey, whom she portrays on the popular VUZU AMP sitcom, Yara says they differ in some key ways.

"I didn't vibe with Zoey's take on the [election] episode", she said. Adding, "She wanted to stay apolitical."

In real life, Yara is one young star who likes to be part of the important conversations, such as the recent US travel ban.

Also in real life, she dresses really impressively!

Catch her as Zoey on Black-ish, Thursdays at 19:30 on VUZU AMP 103.
