Much has been written about It girl Chloë Sevigny's style and background. Sevigny attributes her frugal past to her love of vintage: "I still prefer to buy vintage over spending it all on one designer," she told the Times. Vintage has always been at the core of her edgy style. She was among the first to make it cool on the red carpet, after years of mixing the preppy of her Connecticut upbringing with a vintage-informed street style gleaned from escapes into Manhattan. Her then-singular look got her noticed at 17 by a magazine editor and swept her straight into the "It girl" realm.
The actress insists her wardrobe is stocked almost entirely from thrift and vintage stores, with the occasional conventional separate thrown in for good measure. When asked about her shopping style Chloe says that there is so much good vintage. I'll go to Resurrection or Decades and be like, "Oh, I'm going to buy everything," but a lot of it is extremely expensive so I'll go to Wasteland and satisfy that urge and it's not too hard on the pocketbook. Then there's this place called Studio Wardrobe Department where everything is like three dollars.
Unlike most Hollywood starlets, you won’t find Sevigny meandering down Rodeo Drive on her shopping sprees. You are more likely to spot the independent actress in quirky stores such as C Madeline’s Showroom; a vintage store in Miami that stocks almost 100 years worth of the finest vintage clothing from all the greats, such as Gucci, Bill Blass and Halston.
