Many people say Chloë is like marmite, you either love her or you hate her. I have a problem comparing her to marmite as I hate the stuff and adore her.
This wasn’t always to the case though, I must say, Chloë Sevigny is an acquired taste that I’ve learned to love and appreciate. Yes, back in the day I thought she was an awkward looking little thing whom I felt got too much press and it bothered me.
So, what sparked my interest and got me to actually pay attention to her?
Vincent Gallo of course.
The Brown Bunny which received tons of negative press when opening at sundance featuring our dear arrogant Mr. Vincent Gallo and Indie film Princess Ms. Chloë Sevigny, together made an incomprehensible dribble movie with a controversial scene which skyrocketed Mr. Gallo’s name and almost drowned Sevigny’s.
What struck me about Chloë Sevigny though, was her attitude. When Gainsbourg gave France Gall a controversial song to sing, Gall turned around and criticized Gainsbourg for it. Chloe stuck to her guns and remained that she had made her decision with utmost conviction.
Now this is where I realized, ladies and gentlemen, we’re not dealing with a typical annoying, just wants to be on the scene celebrity. This girl is real.
And now that we’re past all that and why we really love her it’s time to talk about the most important part, her style.
Ok. So, she’s always had what I’d like to call, the “farmer” look going on. Fair enough, Inditex made that look commercial two summers ago. However, if you’d really like to see what her style is like, check out this video of Chloë Sevigny presenting her capsule collection for Opening Ceremony http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_O3pSATD83Y
The collection for Opening Ceremony was taken out last year but there are still a couple of items available on the website by Chloë that you can look at.

Chloë has become a name to look at for hipster fashion, so if you don’t appreciate her yet, let her grow on you!
