While Sevigny is now a well-established tastemaker, that hasn’t always been the case, at least according to the tabloids. Her mother found her a pair of vintage thick-rimmed white glasses from a Boy Scout tag sale in Darien, Connecticut. “I was obsessed, and I wore them all the time. I got so ridiculed by all of the US Weeklys and Star Magazines,” says Sevigny. “They were criticizing me, making fun of me, all the above to such an extent that my reps called me and were like, ‘It’s hard for us to see how people are dragging you through the mud over these sunglasses. Perhaps you should stop wearing those.’ It was so extreme” Even then, Sevigny was one step ahead. “Then, of course, they became all the rage.”
As for these silver frames? Sevigny recommends wearing them with something else silver to complement. “I have a nice pair of silver David Yurman hoops,” she says. Well, we’ll see you on the street looking chic, Chloë.
