Chloë at Free Pussy Riot Public Reading

As previously reported, Chloë Sevigny made an appearance at the Free Pussy Riot Public Reading at the Ace Hotel in New York City yesterday, where fans and public figured gathered to show their support for Pussy Riot and the three members of the feminist punk band who are standing trial in Russia for an unauthorized protest at a Moscow church in February and could face as much as seven years in prison. Chloë was the picture of sophistication at the gathering in a white Chloë Sevigny for Opening Ceremony Resort 2012 leather dress with laser-cut eyelets. The first five images in our gallery!

Update: Report from the event from The New York Times:

Ms. Sevigny, in a white eyelet dress and flats, read a letter Ms. Alyokhina wrote long before the trial began, describing being cold and tired in detention. “It seems like it really won’t get any worse,” Ms. Sevigny-as-Ms. Alyokhina said, with feeling. Ms. Myles read a letter the group wrote to Prime Minister Dmitri A. Medvedev.

“There’s a Joan of Arc-type resonance,” she said afterward, “that they’re standing up to patriarchy. It’s poetry in and of itself.”

Update 2: All three of the accused members of the band — Maria Alyokhina, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Yekaterina Samutsevich — have today been sentenced to two years prison for “hooliganism” by a Russian court. Read more on BBC News.

Update 3: Video from the reading via Free Pussy Riot on Twitter. Chloë comes in at about 05:00.
