Chloe Sevigny & Miu Miu – A Fashionable History in Pictures

Hi All!

From blonde screen siren to red-haired tomboy, Chloë Sevigny can assume many guises, and changing hair colour aside, is certainly as diverse a model as any.  Although now known predominantly as an actress, she was hired by Sassy magazine in the mid-nineties because of her enigmatic street style.

Pre Miu Miu days: Chloë Sevigny, Street Style Shoot Sassy Magazine 1992(Before its time? It’s 20 years since this magazine fashion feature was published; it seems nothing has changed?)

As well as working for the magazine, she did modelling work before moving onto acting in 1995, starring in the controversial, Harmony Korine movie Kids.

A year later Chloë Sevigny was the face of Miu Miu Spring/Summer ’96 ad campaign (shot by Jergen Teller). Her short cropped hair and androgynous look, lent itself perfectly to the label’s, fresh young look at the time.

It’s 16 years later and she is back as the face of Miu Miu‘s  A/W ’12 ad campaign (Shot by Mert Alas); complete with cup of tea and perfectly printed trousers.

As a pretty big fan of both model and label, I think that Sevigny’s intangible, effortless cool and Miu Miu‘s eccentric chic are, once again a perfect collaboration.

Though featuring in its ad campaigns twice, Sevigny has remained a fan of the brand throughout; wearing pieces in both magazine editorials and at events on numerous occasions.

    Ms Sevigny can do no wrong in my book. Even when she wears something totally bonkers at least she’s still taking chances unlike most other style-by-numbers actresses.
