About the Author

Chloe Sevigny is an award winning American film actress, fashion designer and former model. In 1994 Jay McInerney wrote a six-page profile on nineteen-year-old Sevigny for the New Yorker coining her "The It- Girl" of the moment - a status she has maintained to the present day. Sevigny made her film debut with a leading role in the controversial film 'Kids'. A long line of roles in generally well-received independent and often avant-garde films throughout the decades established Sevigny's reputation as an indie film queen. In 1999, Sevigny won eight acting awards for her first mainstream role in the critically lauded 'Boys Don't Cry'. Sevigny continued acting in mostly independent art house films, such as 'American Psycho' and 'Party Monster'. From 2006 to 2011, Sevigny played a leading role in the HBO television series 'Big Love', receiving a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress in 2010. She has also played leading roles in the series 'Hit & Miss' (2012) and 'American Horror Story: Asylum'. Additionally, Sevigny has two Off Broadway theatre credits, and has starred in several music videos. She has also designed several wardrobe collections, most recently with Manhattan's Opening Ceremony boutique.

Reviews

"Model, actress and muse of independent cinema, Chlo Sevigny is a contemporary female icon who thinks outside the box." -Muse Magazine

"Part of the pleasure of perusing Chlo Sevigny is precisely in re-experiencing this pre-Internet era of 'alternative' and 'independent' that Sevigny inspired with her mischievous, do-it-yourself aesthetic. Even as she joined larger Hollywood ensembles and accrued more mainstream success, her passion for the avant-garde has not waned. Moreover, the book highlights contemporary fashion's extraordinary spirit of levity and inventiveness, qualities for which she has been largely responsible." -Rolling Stone "Thus was born the retrospective album Chlo Sevigny (Rizzoli), a compilation of photographs, tear sheets, scrapbook pages, and other highly personal ephemera curated by the actor, designer, occasional Vogue model, and original street-style icon . . . the grainy photos in the book have an undeniably nostalgic appeal - in those antediluvian days we were still communicating largely without the help of computers, instead relying on the ancient machinery of typewriters, Polaroids, and Xeroxes." -Vogue "Sevigny's latest project aims to stitch together her diverse pursuits., a photo book published by Rizzoli, due out tomorrow, collects a hundred and seventy images from the span of her career, taken by friends and collaborators including Harmony Korine, Mario Sorrenti, and Inez and Vinoodh, with essays by Kim Gordon and Natasha Lyonne. It's not an art book or a scrapbook, she says, but a fan book, in the vein of teen fanzine tributes to River Phoenix or Matt Dillon." -The New Yorker "As Rizzoli's new tome proves, little has changed since the '90s - Chlo is still as cool as ever." -Harper's Bazaar "Chlo Sevigny looks back on her three-decade oeuvre and delivers a deeply inviting visual anthology." -Nylon Magazine "Rizzoli's Chlo Sevigny catalogues the images, ephemera, and personal details [Chloe] feels best represent her . . ." -V Magazine "Chlo Sevigny hit the big screen 20 years ago with Kids and later earned an Oscar nomination for Boys Don't Cry and a Golden Globe for Big Love. With the release of a self-titled book of portraits, the actress reflects on her other full-time job: being cool." -Entertainment Weekly "The New Yorker famously called her 'the coolest girl in the world, ' so Chlo Sevigny needs little introduction. Boasting a resume of eclectic credentials - each one more impressive and unique than the last - she is that rare creature who is cool without trying, effortless without being conceited, and interesting without being pretentious. A muse to film directors, designers, and musicians for over two decades, her latest venture is a self-titled book published by Rizzoli that chronicles her journey from a teen trawling skate parks in the early '90s, to her career as an it-girl, actress, and model bar none." -Yahoo! Beauty ..".charts a rather fantastical, visually ecstatic coming-of-age - street urchin to star - in pictures, Polaroids, snapshots, magazine covers . . . the book is a wild ride through a well-spent youth." -Interview Magazine "The term 'It Girl' tends to be overused and is borderline meaningless at times, but when you're talking about Chlo Sevigny, it's an ideal descriptor. In her self-titled photo book--published by Rizzoli and boasting a foreword by Kim Gordon--Sevigny's eclectic and truly personal style is explored, from her days as a teenager interning for Sassy to being the face of Miu Miu." -CoolHunting.com "Chlo fans, rejoice! 'The Coolest Girl in the World' now has her own Rizzoli book." -I-D "This book will be a total blast for the legions of Chlo Sevigny fans the world over and will be an inspirational must for young women everywhere, who march to their own fashion tune and appreciate Chloe's fearless and fun choices-- in fashion and in life!" -Marinela.com
