Chloë Sevigny: 'The "It girl" is dead'
Chloë Sevigny is never one to keep quiet, which is why we love her all the more. The actress has given another frank interview, this time to Playboy magazine, expressing her views on her ideal man to why she thinks today's idea of the "It girl" is dead.
"Today the term is used to describe, say, Peaches Geldof - a girl who doesn't do anything but is just sort of around. The original It girl was the 1920s movie star Clara Bow; then, in the 1960s, with Edie Sedgwick and Warhol, It girls turned into socialites, ladies of leisure."
As for what she thinks of her own personal style, she added: "I'm glad I grew up during the last vestige of cool, in the 1990s, when everything wasn't blogged and on the Interwebs, when things were more on the down-low and underground. I guess I am stylish, but I would rather have people come up and say 'I really liked your performance in this or that' than 'I really like the way you dress.' That irks me."
Awesome, insightful girl.
