Chloe Sevigny covers the November 2013 issue of Town&Country magazine in Christian Dior photographed by David Dunan and styled by Hannah Teare.
We literally clapped and laughed at the sight of this cover. It’s just so very Sevigny; smart and sexy and a little funny mixed with a little weird.
On being labeled an “It Girl:” “It must come up when you Google me or something. I’d rather cut off my pinkie than Google myself. The whole ‘It Girl’ thing—I never felt that was the correct label, because I saw that as meaning ‘flash in the pan,’ or ‘socialite,’ or ‘rich girl,’ or ‘druggie girl,’ or ‘model girl,’ even though its origin is Clara Bow, who was the coolest thing ever.”
On getting the acting bug early: “I saw Annie in kindergarten. And then I was like, ‘I want to do that.’ ”
On finding inspiration in fashion magazines: “Marianne Faithfull and Debbie Harry—those were the first images I ever saw of women that I thought were beautiful.”
On the friends she gravitated towards in high school: “They were the ‘cool kids,’ the ones who were also the rejects and the delinquents, and probably the children of alcoholics or divorced parents. People I fit in with.”
On being pigeonholed in Hollywood: “I may have hurt myself as far as being pigeonholed. It’s always this ’90s indie-girl thing. I can’t crawl out of that, at least in Hollywood’s perception of me.”
LUV HUH. Hollywood’s never going to see her as an A-List ladystar because she’s just got too much quirkiness going on. She can’t fight it. It’s who she is. We wouldn’t peg it solely as a ’90s indie girl kind of thing. She’s just not very Hollywood. That’s what makes her great, as far as we’re concerned.
And yes, this is pure Town & Country drag; a slight parody of the looks the magazine favors. It’s brilliant. And she looks great.
