‘The Secrets of Chloe Sevigny’s Preppy Cool’ in the November Town and Country Magazine

Chloe Sevigny from Whit Stillman’s The Last Days of Disco is the cover girl for the most recent Town and Country Magazine.  The article discusses fashion, films, Chloe Sevigny’s Voltron commercial, and Cape Cod salt box houses.  It also talks about Sevigny’s love for Little House on the Prairie and that she’d love to be in a period drama.  Maybe Whit Stillman can make that happen?

“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.

Leafing through Vogue and The Face and gazing at album covers, she found her style deities. “Marianne Faithfull and Debbie Harry—those were the first images I ever saw of women that I thought were beautiful.”

She talks about Edith Wharton with the same unaffected excitement she brings to her favorite Guided by Voices record (which happens to be Bee Thousand). And after all the out-there parts, what Sevigny really wants to do in her career, she says, is period drama. “I’ve always wanted to be in one, the romance of it, being swept up.”
