Chloë Sevigny is a contemporary fashion icon whose eclectic and daring personal style of “looking cool without looking like you are trying” fashion sense is imitated by legions of fashionistas around the world. Sevigny is a long-time muse in the downtown creative scene for over three decades, beginning in the early '90s when she modeled for Sassy and soon after when she appeared in a Sonic Youth music video, then starred in the controversial independent movie 'Kids'. Simultaneously, her quirky and avant-garde fashion sense was getting her noticed by top indie magazines and photographed by the world's top photographers. Since, she has starred in dozens of films and television series, and has been nominated and awarded multiple awards for her acting performances in addition to starting a fashion label with the trendy global boutique Opening Ceremony.
This inspiring volume is a deeply personal illustrated chronicle of the evolution of Sevigny's unique style throughout her career: from a teenage skater-girl to the award-winning film actress and fashion designer she is today. The book features early personal photos of adolescent Sevigny photographed by her high school friends; film stills; modeling appearances for high-profile fashion lines such as Miu Miu, Chloe, and X-Girl; magazine editorials for Purple, ID, The Face, Dazed and Confused, Self Service, and Italian Vogue by top photographers such as Mark Borthwick, Terry Richardson, and Juergen Teller, to name a few; and homages by artists such as Elizabeth Peyton and Karen Klimnick. Additionally Sevigny will share some of her treasured personal memorabilia, such as casting fliers, Polaroids, zines, and pages from her day planner journals.
