Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony Fall 2013 Look Book

Posted on February 18, 2013

Oh, we didn’t think Chloe could ever be this good to us, but Christmas has rolled around once again for T Lo. For the Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony Fall 2013 collection lookbook, Miss Chloe herself unveiled a whole boatload of new alternate personalities to model the line. It’s a Chloe’s Alterstravaganza!

There are too many to linger over, darlings. You’ll have to fill in the details yourselves. For now, meet:

Derek, a sexually non-threatening tween pop star; Toni, choreographer and former game show model…


Georgette, art gallery owner and drama queen …


The cast of Bravo TV’s upcoming The Real Storefront Fortune Tellers of Long Island


Paula, a shy insurance company stenographer in 1967; Kiki, her wild, swinging, look-alike English cousin…


Anoushka, Russian fashion designer; Ellen DeGeneres…


Roshan, Pakistani women’s boxing champion; Bitsy, girl reporter…


The Thibault Quintuplets, Canadian pop stars.



Steve, a college wrestling coach in 1986…


Princessa, drag queen, part-time Spanx model;  Cecile, mobster’s daughter, loudmouth…


Louise-Ann, a precocious and troublesome six-year-old; Dolores, French socialite and PETA spokesmodel…

And last, but by no means least…


Ruth, peeing-in-the-woods religious cult member.

    • LadyCelia

      Oh dear lord, these are wonderful!

      • judybrowni

        Best laughs I’ve had all day, TLo!

    • kategs

      Presumably this is all tongue firmly in cheek but it’s just so bad!  Dumb and bad. 

    • SRQkitten

      Brilliant! (The captions, not the clothes).


    • Deac82

      this gives me life. Also, I think that I owned Derek’s sweatshirt in 1985—when I was 3.

    • Garcia Loca

      SPOT ON! Every caption is like a crystallized tear of a unicorn — perfect and unattainable.

    • Annabelle Archer

      It’s like she knows! 

      I need this as a slide show wallpaper.

    • almondemy

      Wow, these are… wow. So deliciously unflattering! I only like the Cecilia mob-dress and even that is too short.  Oh, Chloe…

    • Sobaika

      I was composed until you called her ELLEN DEGENERES and then came the Pakistani women’s boxing champion.

      Bravo, TLo. Bravo!

      •ía-Gavello/1253586868 Lucía Gavello

        I snorted audibly at my office desk with ELLEN DEGENERES. Thanks for waking me up from my allergy pills induced coma T-Lo!!!

    • Sara__B

      It’s a Whitman’s Sampler of Chloe personas. Yum!

    • sherrietee

      I thought Roshan was Justin Bieber.

    • marlie


      Thanks, guys. 

    • mjude

      just fucking brilliant boys, brilliant.

    • Susan Collier

      Comedy gold! I have no idea what Opening Ceremony is, but I was surprised to see that Vision Street Wear was still around and didn’t go the way of EMF…

    • Stubenville

      But where’s Pia?

    • Anathema_Device

      Dying, absolutely dying. I thinking I stop breathing somewhere around “Ellen DeGeneres.”

      Can we talk about the infantilizing looks here? Good lord.

    • John Spodick

      Let’s make a Paula/Kiki sitcom happen!

      • makeityourself

        “One pair of matching bookends, different as night and day . . . “

      • Wellworn

        I just commented on those two.  There was already a sitcom made of them, the Patty Duke Show from the 1960s.  I guess you have to be ancient like me to know about that. Both played by Patty Duke, a kooky American named Patty and her proper British identical cousin named Cathy.  Just switched the nationalities but otherwise that’s the same sitcom.

        • bitchybitchybitchy

          And I think that Chloe is just the right actor to do a deeply twisted remake of the Patty Duke sitcom, which I too remember. Can’t you imagine the befuddlement of the parents/host family when Kiki and Roshan show up for breakfast?

          • Wellworn

            I love it! Or what if Derek asks Paula to the high school dance?  Chaos ensues!

            • ballerinawithagun

              The Patty Duke Show, I remember it well!

            • AnneElliot

              I want to see a Chloe version of The United States of Tara, where she has multiple personalities to showcase all of her alters.  HBO, are you listening?

    • ChaCha_70

      Bowing down to you, TLo. This is brilliant!

    • Stubenville

      Picture one, white dress; the world’s your gynecologist.

    • J. Preposterice

      So, Chloe has never done a damn thing for me, except in those pics of her in boy-drag/butch-drag/whatever genderplay thing is going on up there.  Suddenly I want to climb her like a tree.

    • Dorrene BrownButterfield

      Your Chloe Sevigny posts are manna from heaven! :)

    • MK03

      I would cut a bitch for Princessa’s black checked dress. SICK’NIN’.

    • Paola Quintero


    • WordyDoodles


    • Jennifer Coleman

      Stop, Tlo, stop! You’re killing me.
      But can I have those little plastic boots? They’re horrible, yet spellbinding.

    • Beverly Kozma

      Her legs are gorgeous.  I look forward to the Chloe posts, and this one has to be the ultimate.

    • jennyv

      Oh my god, you guys, it’s too much! And as usual, you have nailed every single alter!

      So, she just copied a bunch of vintage clothing it looks like, eh? 

    • joancarol

      Clapping with happiness!

    • margaret meyers

      Your captions are hysterical… but I liked the clothes and I really liked using CS as the model for everything.  She does a great job here.

    • Sue_Asponte

       Perfection! Not the clothes (shudder) but your comments. I do want Bitsy’s plastic flat/booties though.

    • Melissa Mellon

      YES! And I’m thinking that at least two of these personalities are stalking you two. My guess is Bitsy and Roshan.

    • AlinaValero

      lost it at ellen degeneres

    • Rrroza

      laughing so hard here

    • Melvis Velour

      The Thibault Quintuplets…I just died…this was brilliant all around

    • clevRcat

      Once again I’m trying not to snort with laughter here at work!  Brilliant, TLo!  (Actually, I think Ellen dresses a lot better than that!)

    • jason

      god, I love you guys! 

    • IAmJ

      This will go down in history as one of the greatest blog posts of all time.

    • sariebee

      How could I love you more? A Patty Duke Show reference.

    • alyce1213

      This is just too much, it’s too funny.  
      I’d lay wages that she knows all about and took inspiration from T-Lo’s alter posts.  She’d do that.

    • ojosazules


    • nannypoo

      The captions are perfect. Surprisingly, IMHO so are these adorable pictures.

    • butterflysunita

      Oh, wow!  It’s like the scene in “Being John Malkovich” where there are Malkoviches everywhere.  Such a cornucopia of Chloe alters!  

    • joything

      The Real Storefront Fortune Tellers of Long Island put me on the floor.

      That grey frock on the one in front is actually cute.

      • Ms Alistar

        I thought for certain there was some Little Edie Beale with that headscarf. 

    • Isabel

      I like some of the clothes! She ‘s a great model for all of them. Thanks for the captions, TLo. I would love it if you ever interviewed her.

    • golden_valley

      Genius!  You two, not Chloe…  I’ve never seen more perfect captions.

    • StellaZafella

      Having seen CS before in other venues, I choose to believe she’s in on this…all of it. But if she let on for one second that she is, she knows she’d spoil the fun. The mark of a satirical genius is in making the rest of the world wonder…just wonder…could she really be this freaky?
      CS I LOVE YOU…never change! And NEVER BREAK CHARACTER!

    • formerlyAnon

      Love you guys.

      Lena Dunham should look at this line. Particularly some of the ensembles modeled by the Thibault Quintuplets. 

    • gabbilevy

      Thank you Mr. Jesus for giving us this look book.

    • Pamela

      Love the reference to the “Chloe Duke Show”-hahaha!!!  Too bad we can’t linger; I would love to hear more deets from T-Lo on each of these.

    • Lilithcat

      Bravo TV’s upcoming The Real Storefront Fortune Tellers of Long Island…

      I would so watch that show.

      • joything

        You know they would all be putting curses on each other and seducing everybody’s brothers, sons and husbands.

      • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

        My significant other thinks the Bravo channel is evil and will bring about the destruction of western civilization as we know it.

        • formerlyAnon

           Plausible. But other media outlets are giving Bravo a lot of help.

    • MilaXX

      Chloe is the gift that keeps on giving. I really like the gray dress the fortune telling alter is wearing.

    • SugarSnap108

      Hilarious!  And I’m actually freaked out.  It’s like she DID THIS FOR YOU 😮

      On a different note, I really like the brown storefront-fortune-teller dress — which is a weird statement to type.

    • Laylalola

      OMG somebody actually paid to have these shots done?

    • deathandthestrawberry

      Some of the dresses are really cute, but the pants are tragic. 

    • jw_ny

      hysterical!  Whomever did this editorial owes TLo for the inspiration! 

      Derek and Toni are totally hot for each other…creepy when ya think about it.  😉

    • Danielle Lisle

      Ellen DeGeneres had me shouting with laughter!

    • NYCGlamourpuss

      Oh, bravo, bravo, bravo, gentlemen!

    • Sarah Adams

      I would SO watch a reality show about storefront fortune tellers. Also, I’m starting to appreciate just how talented an actress Ms Sevigny is – she really does have a different personality in each of these shots. (The clothes are boring though.)

      • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

        seriously, she’s a chameleon of an actress.  that’s probably why she doesn’t get the ‘movie star’ roles.  she disappears into her character.

        • joything

          After I saw her in “The Last Days of Disco” and “Boys Don’t Cry” very close together, I said, She’s the real thing. An actress. Admiration and hilarity!

    • Dino Bonačić

      hahahahaha <3

    • Pants_are_a_must


    • Synnae

      When I saw these pictures earlier this week I was PRAYING for you to do a write-up. I love you guys!
      Also love Georgette’s pencil skirt btw 😉

    • PeaceBang

      HOW did this happen? Someone at Opening Ceremony absolutely must be a Bitter Kitten. And this, my dear gentlemen, is the Mother Lode. I can’t wait to savor this over a cup of coffee in the morning. The Thibault Quints are probably my favorite, especially the one with the high waist pouf skirt and no bra. You have truly outdone yourselves, boys.

    • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName


    • Fifi LaRoux

      I spit soda all over my keyboard. Thanks guys! I needed that! :)

    • veronicafish

      These are perfection.

    • veronicafish

      These are perfection!

    • Slowfish57

      We could have an entire season of Project Runway featuring Chloe’s multiple personalities fighting with each other.

      • joything

        THAT Project Runway I would watch!!!!!

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        An entire season of Chloe’s alters as guest judges, too!

    • beebee10

      You are awesome genius. I think she does this for you. 

    • guest2visits

       The oddball is out. Unchained. On the loose.  A lookbook of multiple Chloe personas is madness ! 
      People have been reading TLo and getting ideas; look what you started !

    • appliquer

      Awesome review!

    • Targettaste

      Roshan the boxing champ because the print on her pants higlights her, uh…box?

    • Call me Bee

      Oh my gosh I love thi…..wait!  I think I know shy Paula and Kiki, her wild English cousin!

    • PaulaBerman

      Thank you for finally naming one of the alters PAULA! There are at least 3 Paula bitter kittens, so we are glad to have our name recognized, if only for a stenographer in the 1970s (which is about when our name peaked in popularity…)

    • neofashionista

      Phenomenal Job Gentlemen
      THis is one of the best posts of ALL time!!!!

    • Frank Lithium


    • fringebenefit

      Enduring humor is when you read something on Monday and involuntary tears still stream when you think back on it the next Sunday. Good thing I don’t go to church.

    • Nonmercisansfacon

      DEAD! Someone get Chloe a reality show and get T-LO do ‘write’ it. Goddess, I love her. 

    • Paula Pertile

      A+ and a gold star!

    • ashtangajunkie

      This is everything a BK could ever want, and so much more.

    • Imasewsure

      We should be able to keep this on a loop and just recycle it any time it’s a slow, fashion day at TLo Intl (or we are needing Xmas). She is the gift that keeps on giving. Thank you TLo

    • decormaven

      Hosannas and huzzahs! The perfect anecdote to my post-Downton Abbey Bitterness Fiesta earlier in the day.

    • BrooklynBomber

      Oh. my. God. (which I never do — the periods-after-oh-my-God thing), this is THE MOST PERFECT post ever! Brill beyond brill. Perfection upon perfection. Plus, the campaign is brilliant, and I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if whoever came up with it has been reading this blog. In fact, I’m pretty sure they have been. Bravo TLo!

    • Shawn EH

      I love those plastic and black booties.

    • nc17

      ” Steve, a college wrestling coach in 1986…”
      S.O.L. = Snort Out Loud

    • ThaliaMenninger

      Here’s Kiki who’s been most everywhere, from Zanzibar to Berkeley Square, while Paula’s only seen the sights a girl can see from Brooklyn Heights… What a crazy pair!

      • FifiDubois

        A hotdog makes her lose control (my all time favorite line from a television theme song)

    • quiltrx

      You guys are TOO good at this!

      And we have to give Chloe credit–if she can make us see all these different girls, she’s a pretty good model.

    • VictoriaDiNardo

      Brilliant. Is it possible to give TLo some kind of award?  

    • Wellworn

      Who else saw Paula and Kiki and thought “Patty Duke Show”?  And that was before I read your caption.  Just the nationalities are switched but that could be Cathy and Patty.  Am I old or what?

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      Chloe and her alters-the gift that never, ever stops giving.Brava to the alters and to Uncles T and Lo!

    • Gabriella M

      I love you both so hard for this series. SO MUCH LOVE. 

    • CatherineRhodes

      TLo, you deserve a Pulitzer for your coverage of Chloe Sevigne’s alters. You two are geniuses.

    • Fatima Siddique

      This HAD to have been done specifically for the delight of Messrs T and Lo. 

    • MishaFoomin

      Those plastic booties are truly awful. Are they really for sale or just a dumb prop for the shoot?

    • pookiesmom

      It’s like this ad campaign was tailor made for you to make fun of. I can’t imagine what else it’s made for, since the clothes are overall rather HIDEOUS.

    • Antonia O’Connor Donnelly


    • L.

      Love!  Plus… I had a lot of these same outfits for Skipper.

      • formerlyAnon

         Dead on.

    • andreawey

      OMG I live for the Chloe alter posts, it’s like they did this whole shoot for TLo!!!

    • TieDye64

      Comedy GOLD! You guys slay me and this spread is priceless.

    • foodycatAlicia

      Brilliant! And I am actually sad to be 35 years too old for the red t-bars.

    • RzYoung

      A gift, these are a gift. I’m totally convinced now that she reads this blog. TLO, you need to reach out to her 

    • Zirza

      How this woman became a style icon is beyond me, but this is hilarious. 

    • Nancy Skaggs

      Keyboardspew to end all keyboardspews…. Perfection, every word. It’s as if she WANTED you to do this.

    • Vera

      Pure gold.

    • Helen

      What a fabulous start to my day. Thanks, T&L

    • Catiline

      Crying at Ellen Degeneres.

    • famousamy

      Love her… Love this!

    • Susan Crawford

      TLo and Chloe: is there a more delicious combination? Derek and Toni need to make a tween rom-com, STAT! Love the Thibault Quints – oh, the dramatic possibilities of their lives: jealousy, passion, obsession. I need to meet Kiki for brunch and a pitcher of mimosas: good times! SO want my fortune told by the Long Island storefront gang. And Ellen DeGeneres . . . pause to mop up morning coffee spit-take. If there is a plan to the universe, Miss Sevigny needs to be your BFF, TLo. Imagine what madness and hilarity would ensue.
      And I also love a great many of the designs in the look book – very fresh and kicky!

    • Carina

      This is amazing and needs it’s own sub-category/book deal. None of these clothes appeal to me.

    • VioletFem

      It’s almost as if she has read every post TLo has ever written about her. 

    • StillGary

      Like everyone, I am awaiting the THE BOOK — but I would buy the FACES of CHLOE compilation in a heartbeat! Toni Collette is soooo jealous right now!

    • A Shiny O’Connor

      The TLo never stops being the awesomest thing to come out of the internet.

    • Judy_S

      I come to this late so all I will say is that she is obviously inspired by the desire to keep TLo and all bitter fawns/unborn kittens happy.

    • sweet_potato

      Thank you for this.

    • Emily Dagger

      Real talk: I think she did this photoshoot just for you boys. 

    • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

      RUTH!  OMG!  Now I literally have to go back home and change my pants.  Thanks a hella lot.  

    • CricketNYC

      Oh, thank goodness! I thought she was slipping when I saw her at an Off-Broadway opening the other week wearing jeans and a black turtleneck, like a normal freakin person. It was such a disappointment! 

    • prettybigkitty

      Chloe-gazna!  Which is more of a bonanza than elegazna. 

    • Judi Townsend

      Why did they use her as a representative for their brand? Cause without the Tlo captions – she and the clothing would be totally FORGETTABLE.

    • MinAgain

      You guys are the best quipsters evah.

      In my youth, I owned a version of most of these outfits.

    • ConnieBV

      Quick, someone go make a calendar!

    • Zippypie

      I’m crying!!!  AHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHA!  OMG, oh Uncles T & Lo!  That was effin amazing!  Your captions MUST go into the look book.  They MUST!

      And as far as the clothing goes, who cares?!

    • JuliaInBlack

      Oh, I just love you guys so much.  The Thibault Quintuplets sent me sailing right over the edge into snort-laughter.

    • JMB_edits

      It’s as if she’s baiting you!

    • Pablo Ulloa


    • EEKstl


    • editrixie

      This is just fucking amazeballs. It’s like they all KNEW.

    • cmb92191

      Steve cracked me up!

    • Heather

      Hilarious, boys.

      As for the clothes: I like Paula’s shoes; other than that, fug.

    • melanie0866

      She is SO unattractive.  But in a couple of this pictures, she actually looks cute.  I didn’t think it was possible.

    • ccm800

      cute stuff though

    • Sara Munoz Munoz

      Those shoes are HORRIBLE. Every. Last. Pair.

    • Renate Yerkes

      ding ding ding! 100 %!

    • H2olovngrl

      I think maybe your commentary was an inspiration.

    • cheekypinky

      The 90s called.

      They want their hairclip back.

    • librarygrrl64

      I would not want to live in a world where your Chloe posts didn’t exist. This one is particularly spectacular. Bravo, gentlemen, bravo!
