Seek­ing se­vi­gny

The In­die Queen of cool is the new face (and feet) of Jimmy Choo’s lat­est cam­paign and the slip dress is back.

Back in 1994, writer Jay Mcin­er­ney called 19-year-old Chloë Se­vi­gny the “coolest girl in the world” in an ar­ti­cle for The New Yorker. More than 20 years on, the Amer­i­can ac­tress, fash­ion de­signer, di­rec­tor and for­mer model is still a con­tender. Se­vi­gny is a style leader, known for her eclec­tic fash­ion sense and love of all things vin­tage. “Grow­ing up in sub­ur­ban Con­necti­cut, most of my style in­flu­ences were peo­ple I’d see around me: the rebels at school, the girls who were into al­ter­na­tive mu­sic in clunky shoes and black mock turtle­necks. They were the crowd I wanted to roll with,” says Se­vi­gny, who shot a photo diary for the Jimmy Choo col­lec­tion in the Florida Keys while on lo­ca­tion film­ing the sec­ond sea­son of the Net­flix drama Blood­line. Her favourite shoe, the white Luc pump with the red vinyl at the toe cleav­age, “would be great with jeans or a sexy dress,” she says. “They re­mind me of white pumps I’d wear in the ’90s. I love a white shoe. It’s a bold state­ment.”
