I first saw Chloe Sevigny in the Kids, a film about bored suburban teens experimenting with anything and everything dangerous. The film was so disturbing to me. I was in my 20s at the time and wondered how everything could have changed so much already?!

It was an important, controversial film, and Kids sent Sevigny on a career trajectory that included many more important and jarring movies including Gummo, The Last Days of Disco, Boys Don’t Cry, American Psycho and the ultra-controversial Brown Bunny.

After all that, she played a fundamentalist Mormon second wife in Big Love, and has gone on to direct and star in more mainstream films including Zodiac and appeared in The Mindy Project. The woman is indie to the core and an incredibly versatile actor.

In addition to all that and a slew of movies you’ve probably never heard of, Sevigny is a fashion icon who has collaborated with the likes of Miu Miu, Louis Vuitton, Chloe, was creative director of Imitation of Christ and has long collaborated with ultimate cool-girl brand Opening Ceremony.

All that said, it’s no surprise Sevigny is a master of denim style and has been since she was a kid. She mastered mom jeans long before anyone else was wearing them, and her kick-flare games on point. Behold!
