I bought a pair of Birkenstocks today - let's be real. I wanted a chunky sandal that was functional. That should tell you where I am at as far as fashion.— Chloe Sevigny
The most uplifting Chloe Sevigny quotes that are guaranted to improve your brain
I do a dance-based cardio workout infused with circuit training, and emphasizing strength and alignment.
I'm really into a blush on the eyelid and on the high of the cheek.
The singer of 'Cocteau Twins' used to do that - really pink eyelids. It added a little romance to the hard kind of street-edge clothes.
I'm single, so I'm trying to do an overall overhaul.
The look I'm going for is very '80s supermodel. It's time to be sexy.
It was always a fantasy of mine growing up - my favorite program was always 'Little House on the Prairie' - so I always wanted to wear those looks. When I was a child, I wouldn't let my mom put me in anything but calico dresses and now... whaddaya know, every day I'm in a calico dress, basically, so it's kind of funny.
I'm a sucker for packaging!
As of late, I am more of a homebody. I like having people over. You can smoke in the apartment. I'm just not into going out so much. The crowd is getting younger and younger.
I want a guy who is masculine, good with his hands, and able to build stuff and who has survival skills. Facial hair is a big turn-on... I like a stronger, more physically imposing man - like a lumberjack.
My first job was in sixth grade, sweeping the clay tennis courts at the yacht club near my house, which I was not a member of. Always had to pay my own rent. But I don't really have any concept of how money works. I don't know how much things cost. Like a BMW. Or a quart of milk. It's embarrassing.
Muse. Mu-se. It's a great thing, for someone to feel that they can draw inspiration from you. And I don't think it's necessarily a man 'taking' from a woman. It can go both ways, both can stimulate, excite.
New York is so diverse. When you're on the street or in the subway, you're experiencing more of the diversity of New York.
Fashion embraces the weirdos. They're into that. There are always young people that people in fashion are interested in. You know, youth and vitality and energy - it brings something different.
I feel like we were the last generation, and there's this big divide before and after the 1990s. I feel sorry for the kids today. It's all too much.
I was a girly-girl until I moved to New York.
Then I got really into the androgynous look of the early-'90s club scene. I had really short hair and started blurring the line a bit. But for me, grade school was about Benetton, Esprit, and Guess jeans.
It's not what you spend but how you wear it that counts.
The key is often to dress up inexpensive basics with accessories. Something like a beautiful designer bag or belt can make everything else look richer and more luxurious.
It's like you always have to put on a happy face, be the phony baloney, and I'm so not that. I never was that; I'll never be that. That is part of the business that I don't like.
I'm more conservative with make-up. My everyday look is a bit of concealer with lots and lots of mascara.
If I'm feeling down in the dumps, or like I need a pop of colour, I'll put on MAC's Lipstick in Lady Danger. I discovered red lipstick when I did the Oscar season: Chanel sent me one and I realised how classic and glamorous it can be.
When I was younger, I was really anti-Hollywood.
Now I'm more accepting of it because I'm less of a snob.
I definitely spend the most money on shoes, partly because vintage footwear can be a little funky - in a bad way. I like to keep things pretty simple up top and then go weird with the shoes.
From when I was a really small girl on, I would pick every fabric, every color on the walls, and I was always redecorating. Like once every couple of months I would redecorate my room. I had a full wall that was all collage - the entire wall - when I was in junior high. And then it would kind of morph with me as I was growing.
I wish I looked more like my mother, but I think I look like my father.
I wish I had one of those naturally beautiful faces. Or a more quirky face. I'm right down the middle: not interesting enough, not pretty enough.
I always like my trailer or hotel room to have fresh flowers or pillows I find at a local flea market - anything to personalize the environment.
It's a great thing, for someone to feel that they can draw inspiration from you.
I know who I am by now. And I am my own brand.
I am a Scorpio, and playing the seductress appeals to me.
There are a lot of women throughout film history, like Marlene Dietrich or Mae West - those are the women I was always attracted to. The bad girls.
I have the insecurities of any actress, I suppose of any woman.
Even the most beautiful ones feel unhappy. Look at Bardot: she was suicidal. But I like to play with the camera. I like to ham it up.
It's hard to encapsulate my inspiration because there are so many different looks, but I think it's just like, sexy girl you see walking down the street in a cool outfit. A lot of eyelet, a lot of leather, playing with the hard and the soft, the good and bad inside of us all.
Even buying a swimsuit is super difficult. And then making one is even harder.
I always feel I could be like Toni Collette, going between big studio things and indie films. That would be feasible.
When I get a fringe, it's because I'm bored or need a change; I always regret it!
I am most proud of my integrity and least proud of my cynicism.
I think once you're past 30 you shouldn't wear a lot of glitter.
I refrain from lots of things I love, like cheese and carbs.
I eat plenty of greens every day, my favorite being watercress.
I permed my hair 12 years ago, because I always wanted a perm, but my mother would never let me have one! I got a lot of stick, but I didn't care - I loved the curls. The growing out was the difficult part!
I love cleaning the house. I'd never have a cleaner - I wouldn't trust them to do it.
When I was a teenager, I was really into hair;
I dyed it different colours and had loads of haircuts. I shaved my head when I was 17 - it was pretty radical!
I had always wanted to be an actress.
I went to summer theater camp from kindergarten on up until high school, and always had the leads in all the plays - even though they were at the YMCA - but it was something I always wanted to do.
The umlaut isn't on my birth certificate.
I had this book as a child called Chloe and Maude, and there was an umlaut on the e, and I said, I want that! It's a little flair. Just to confuse people even more.
I'm definitely a lash girl. I feel they are my best feature. I have tried lots of mascaras. I was drawn to Lancome Doll Lashes recently. Not only because of the name, but it smells like roses! I usually add a few coats of it for a night out.
If I could edit Google Images, then I wouldn't be as scared of the Internet.
I don't like to read about myself, whether it be positive or negative.
The first time I went to therapy, I had to stop going because they were making me hate my parents.
Most of the models have this thing I call slouchy sexy, not only in the way they dress, but in the way carry themselves. I don't think they would look hot in one of my dresses. They are more into A. Wang. Most of my clothes are nerdy sexy.
The other day I got a text from a boy, but it wasn't hot.
I mean, if you're going to text me every day, you haven't seen me for months and you're trying to seduce me, you'd better spice up that text and make it more exciting than 'How was your day? I hope you're having a beautiful one.' Sadly, I haven't been doing a lot of kissing lately.
I had a weird dream the other night that I was on 'Jersey Shore.'
The media loves negative spin.
I save all my problems for my mother.
I couldn't survive just doing independent movies.
And I'd rather do modelling than movies or TV I didn't like.
