20 Times Chloë Sevigny Ended All It-Girls

Like it’s hard.

 


Back in the 90s, the scene was on the streets. And in the heart of New York, Chloë Sevigny was everywhere in art, from modeling to acting. From cult film Kids to American Psycho, the eclectic figure became a symbol of downtown Gen X while sneaking from Connecticut to lower Manhattan. Everyone asked, Who IS that girl? According to the New York Times, in 1994, she was no less than the coolest girl in the world. Since then, the multidisciplinary artist has continued to impress us with her versatility, solidifying her status as the ultimate original It Girl.


Whether as the muse of fashion label Chopova Lowena's fairy tale fashion book Conversations with Angels, (as the mythical Snow Queen from Danish folklore), or as the definitive queen bee in The Last Days of Disco, the intriguing actress has brought originality and realness to the fashion world while surprising us time and time again with her off-the-wall fashion choices. Check out the 20 times Chloë Sevigny confirmed her status as an It Girl and ended all other It Girls.
