Who is Chloë Sevigny?

Chloë Stevens Sevigny is an American film actress, fashion designer and former model. She was born in Springfield, Massachusetts and grew up in the wealthy township of Darien, Connecticut. Sevigny gained a reputation for her eclectic fashion sense and developed a broad career in the fashion industry in the mid- to late 1990s, for modeling and her intern work at New York's Sassy Magazine, which labeled her the new "It Girl" at the time, garnering her attention within New York City's fashion scene. Throughout her early film career, her fashion choices often overshadowed her acting career. In 2000 she won the VH1 Vogue Fashion Award for best female celebrity style. The following year, Vogue Magazine called her a "fashion icon" and one of the "coolest women in the world."

Sevigny made her film debut with a leading role in the controversial film Kids, written by Harmony Korine, which led to an Independent Spirit Award nomination for her performance. A long line of roles in generally well-received independent and often avant-garde films throughout the decade established Sevigny's reputation as an indie film queen.
