Chloe Sevigny Style
Chloë Stevens Sevigny /ˈkloʊi ˈseɪviŋi/ (born November 18, 1974) is an American actress, fashion designer, director, and former model. In 1994, she attracted the attention of novelist Jay McInerney, who wrote a seven-page article about her for The New Yorker, in which he called the then 19-year-old Sevigny the "coolest girl in the world". Sevigny made her film debut with a lead role in the controversial film Kids (1995), written by her then-boyfriend Harmony Korine and received an Independent Spirit Award nomination for her performance. A long line of roles in generally well-received and often experimental films throughout the decade established Sevigny as a mainstay in the independent film community. In 1999, Sevigny gained recognition outside of the independent film world for her role as Lana Tisdel in the fact-based drama Boys Don't Cry, earning her Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations for Best Supporting Actress. Other roles that followed included in American Psycho (2000), Party Monster (2003), and Dogville (2003). Her role in the film The Brown Bunny (2003) caused significant controversy because of a scene in which she performs unsimulated fellatio. Her films since then have included Melinda and Melinda (2004), Manderlay (2005), and Zodiac (2007), the latter of which marked Sevigny's transition into a more big budget studio picture. From 2006 to 2011, Sevigny played the polygamist Nicolette Grant in the HBO television series Big Love, for which she won a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress in 2010. She then appeared in several television projects, including lead roles in Hit & Miss (2012) and American Horror Story: Hotel (2015–2016), and recurring roles on American Horror Story: Asylum (2012–2013), Bloodline (2015–2017), and Portlandia. She made her directorial debut with the short film Kitty, which closed the 2016 Cannes Film Festival.
