“The umlaut isn't on my birth certificate. I had this book as a child called Chloë 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. People always come up to me and say, Oh, you're Chloë Se-VIG-ny, right? Sevigny. Number seven, letter e.”
— From Esquire, January 2009
!!!! You read that right. Check out this clip of Chloë Sevigny from her last year’s Those Who Kill promo tour in which she talks about a potential second series of Hit & Miss being in talks (or at least having been so at the time of the interview in March 2014). We hope this isn’t old news yet.
For those who don’t know, Hit & Miss was a Sky Atlantic-produced six-part miniseries about Mia (Chloë Sevigny), a pre-op transgender female and hitman who unexpectedly learns she fathered a son with a former girlfriend before she began transitioning. The series was a ratings hit for Sky Atlantic upon its UK premiere in 2012, but despite a cliffhanger ending and rave reviews the series was seemingly discontinued.
Just a heads-up that there seems to be a relatively new user account on Instagram which we believe could be the real(!) Chloë Sevigny: @chloessevigny.
Although Chloë has confirmed in many an interview she is not on Twitter or Facebook — at least not publicly — she has talked about possibly wanting to join Instagram, and based on some of the photos posted by the user we believe this to be in fact either the real Chloë or someone closely connected to her.
Here’s Instagram mentioned in an Elle interview with Chloë, published as recently as January 28th, 2015:
That’s interesting. Can I ask why you’re not on Instagram, then? You could post your own images every day…
I bet I will be [on Instagram] soon. It’s an inevitability. I have this book coming out, I have my line with Opening Ceremony, and Instagram is a very good marketing tool. But I’m holding out. It feels like I’m teetering on the edge of shameless self promotion. The book versus Instagram—it’s a fine line.
Until Chloë Sevigny or her representatives confirm the account to be hers, we can’t be 100% this is the real Chloë, however there are a couple of photos on the account — particularly a few recent ones from the ongoing Love & Friendship shoot in Dublin, Ireland — which we believe could only have been obtained by either Chloë herself or someone connected to her.

Foreword by Kim Gordon, Afterword by Natasha Lyonne

A celebration of the eclectic and daring personal style of the actress and contemporary fashion icon Chloë Sevigny — famous for looking cool without looking like she’s trying. Chloë Sevigny has been a muse in the downtown creative scene for over three decades, beginning in the early ’90s when she modeled for Sassy, appeared in a Sonic Youth music video, and then starred in the controversial independent movie Kids (1995). Her quirky and avant-garde fashion sense was quickly noticed by indie magazines and the world’s top photographers. Since then, she has starred in dozens of films and television series, in addition to starting a fashion label with the trendy global boutique Opening Ceremony. This volume is a deeply personal illustrated chronicle of the evolution of Sevigny’s unique style throughout her career: from a teenage skater girl to award-winning film actress and fashion designer. The book includes early personal photos of Chloë taken by her high school friends; film stills; modeling appearances for brands such as Miu Miu and Chloé; magazine editorials for Purple, i-D, and The Face by top photographers such as Mark Borthwick, Terry Richardson, and Juergen Teller; and homages by artists such as Elizabeth Peyton and Karen Kilimnik. Additionally, Sevigny shares some of her treasured personal memorabilia, such as casting fliers, Polaroids, zines, and pages from her day planners. This volume will appeal to the legions of global Chloë fans and fashion industry followers, as well as a mainstream audience who will find this book an inspirational style bible.
Check out the Rizzoli website to see where the book is available for pre-order.
Just playing more catch-up with Chloë’s doings today. The gallery has been updated with a total 68 720p screen captures of Chloë Sevigny guest-starring in episodes 1.02 and 1.04 of HBO’s Doll & Em last year. Chloë had a small but fun cameo in both episodes as an actress called “Chloë”… ;) Check out the caps (and the eps, too) out when you have the time!
