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.

    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.

  • 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!

    • 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.


    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.

  • 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.

  • Your Chloe Sevigny posts are manna from heaven! 🙂

  • MK03

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

  • Paola Quintero



  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!)

  • 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.

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

  • 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?

  • 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.

  • 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.  😉

  • Ellen DeGeneres had me shouting with laughter!

  • NYCGlamourpuss

    Oh, bravo, bravo, bravo, gentlemen!

  • 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!

  • 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


  • 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. 

  • 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!

  • 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!

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

  • Bahahahaha!

  • 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.

  • 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. 

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

  • Pure gold.

  • 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!

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!


  • EEKstl


  • editrixie

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

  • cmb92191

    Steve cracked me up!

  • 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

  • Those shoes are HORRIBLE. Every. Last. Pair.

  • ding ding ding! 100 %!

  • H2olovngrl

    I think maybe your commentary was an inspiration.

  • 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!
