There are some really great celebrity style moments, and then there are the looks that really stick with you, the ones you’re desperately trying to recreate at home. In ‘Great outfits in fashion history‘, the editors of Fashionista revisit their all-time favorite obscenes.
With the coolest wedding the state of Connecticut has ever seen, Chloë Sevigny recently added his wife to her long list of titles, including mother, award-winning actor, style icon, sometimes designer and original it girl. The fashion-filled event (she wore white looks by Glenn Martens for Jean Paul Gaultier couture, Jonathan Anderson for Loewe and Casey Cadwallader for Mugler) prompted a look back at Sevigny’s fashion history, which despite her penchant for design that pushes boundaries, doesn’t really include every misstep.
Even in the early 2000s, Sevigny carefully avoided trends like trucker hats and dazzling denim, instead wearing chic and largely timeless outfits, like the 2003 look above. Her darling pinafore mini dress, unexpected yet cool capped turtleneck, classic Chanel bag and simple strappy sandals have truly stood the test of time. The one detail that really reveals the era is the arm bracelets, which are of course more simple and understated than the clunky ones that became ubiquitous among starlets with Rachel Zoe on their payroll in the mid-20s.
