Chloe Sevigny: Known in the mid to late
nineties for her status as a fashion impresario and "it girl," with over a dozen
art house films to her credit, Chloe Sevigny also stands out as one of the most
prominent queens of contemporary independent cinema. Originally hailing from
Darien, Connecticut, Sevigny attributes weekend trips into nearby New York City
in her teens as an important early saving grace from her super rich and stuffy
hometown. It was on one such trip at the age of eighteen, that Sevigny was
spotted on the street by a fashion editor for Sassy magazine. Impressed by her
flair for street fashion, the editors of the progressive teen mag asked Sevigny
to intern in their offices which led to a few modeling jobs with both Sassy and
x-girl, the urban clothing line created by Sonic Youth front woman Kim Gordon.
At this time Sevigny also spent a lot of her time watching the skateboarders who
convened in New York's Tompkins square park. It was here that she met young
aspiring director Harmony Korine, and a friendship ensued, resulting in her
being cast as the lead in Korine and Larry Clark's collaboration Kids (1995). At
around the same time Sevigny snagged the cover of Interview magazine, and even
inspired writer Jay McInerney to write a piece about her for The New Yorker in
which he hailed her the new "it girl." The late nineties saw Sevigny continuing
her acting career with a string of independent films, among them Trees Lounge
(1996), Palmetto (1998), and Whit Stillman's homage to early 80s yuppiedom The
Last Days of Disco (1998). In 1997 Sevigny and Korine teamed up again to make
Gummo (1997), in which Sevigny both starred and acted as chief costume designer.
It was in 2000 however that Sevigny's career made a turn towards more mainstream
recognition when her portrayal of Lana Tisdel in Boys Don't Cry (1999) garnered
her an Oscar nod at the age of twenty-five. Known for signing on to projects
based on her interest in a good script rather than a hefty price tag, one of
Sevigny's most recent roles, making the climb from indie princess to A list
actress, should see her surprising both audiences and Hollywood alike with roles
in interesting and thoughtful projects.
