Gallery offline pending overhaul

Since CSO launched in 2003, a lot of things have changed – truly, been revolutionized. Technology has made incredible strides, websites have become more professional and website management more complicated. Even fan sites are no longer what they once were; small fan tributes on the limited but growing “world wide web”.

From the beginning, we’ve wanted to be the web’s most comprehensive archive for all things Chloë. We’re big fans of her work as an actress and style icon, we think she’s a riveting personality and (need we say it) all kinds of stunning.

At the same time, however, we want to give credit where it’s due and respect the work of original authors, photographers and their rights. As a result, the time has come to rethink our most popular section – the photo gallery.

The gallery has been something of a problem child for us admins for some time now. It’s poorly organized, time-consuming and laborious to update and, quite simply, too large. And while we want to continue keeping Chloë fans updated on everything she’s doing, we can no longer keep doing so at the expense of owner’s rights (or our peace of mind).

As a result, we have made the decision to take the gallery down while we weigh our options, consider what we’re able to bring back and work on a complete overhaul. We realize this is a disappointment for a lot of our visitors, but believe us when we say we are not making this decision lightly. Rest assured we do intend to bring the gallery back, because we feel it’s important that as much as possible of Chloë’s work remains archived and accessible to fellow fans. But when we do bring it back, it will be in a much more manageable capacity – in every sense of the term.

If you have any comments or questions, feel free to leave them here. In the mean time, we kindly ask you to be patient. As we do have nearly 70,000 files to sort through and we’re all doing this in our spare time, we won’t be done in a week. :I

Best regards

Chloë Sevigny featured in ‘Dazed’ Autumn/Winter 2019

Chloë Sevigny is featured in the Autumn/Winter issue of Dazed magazine.

Chloë looks spectacular in the magazine in a series of new photos taken by photographer Harley Weir. In the accompanying article, she talks among other things about her upcoming TV series We Are Who We Are from director Luca Guadagnino, her third short film White Echo and what happened to the Lizzie Borden series she had been working to get made before Lizzie the movie. A couple of interesting excerpts from the article below:

On Luca Guadagnino and We Are Who We Are:

For Sevigny, already a fan of Guadagnino’s intimate worlds, the project was an opportunity to experience some of the magic for herself. “I really fell hook, line and sinker for Call Me By Your Name,” she says. “And of course this has similar elements: young people’s sexuality, Italy… But I liked that juxtaposition of his taste and aesthetic on the army base, and how that would play out. (Where) would the finery of his other films be? Because military bases are not exactly aesthetically pleasing environments!” A slice of contemporary America in Europe, the picturesque setting will offer a unique backdrop for the idea of all-American values – in an era where said ‘values’ are increasingly politicised – to be explored in stark relief. “There is a lot of that,” says Sevigny, citing the conflicts between parents in the show, as in so many coming-of-age tales, as the essential foil to the adolescents. “My neighbour is played by Kid Cudi, and he’s more conservative. My son befriends his daughter, and he doesn’t like us.”

On Lizzie and the series which was never made:

“It was very dramatic,” she sighs. “Everybody was like, ‘It seems so timely,’ (but) I feel like if it had come out (the way) I initially wanted, it would have been more of a punk gesture. It would have been more radical.” Originally envisaged as a series for HBO scripted by Sevigny’s friend Bryce Kass, the show was scrapped when Lifetime made its own mini-series, The Lizzie Borden Chronicles, with Christina Ricci. When the pair cut down their script into a feature film, the first director pulled out and Craig William Macneill stepped in. […] A year on, and Sevigny is frank about her disappointment with the final cut. “It kind of goes back to that (feeling) of having no control over a project,” she says. “I really wanted to make this a commercial film. Lizzie Borden (would easily find an) audience, what with American Horror Story, all those kids. I always identified her as an outcast. It was unfortunate that (Craig) turned it into this measured and restrained film. I wanted it to be frenetic.”

On her own performance in The Act:

“When I went to see The Act, I went home and I was miserable for a week,” she admits. “I hated the way I looked, I hated my performance, and I was so unhappy. (Watching yourself) can mess with your head for a long period.”
