Chloe Sevigny

Fashionistas (and fashion photographers) love to play with gender boundaries. Too often IMHO that turns campy, like poorly-executed drag, or tasteless-pushing-offensive. These don’t.

Here’s a Monday morning kick for you – Craig McDean’s images of actress Chloe Sevigny, in character as a pre-op transgender assassin in an upcoming British show). And this, my friends, definitely avoids that glitzy, Hedgwig-impersonating trap. They take a high-fashion approach, where gender is more like an accessory. Fashion photogs out there, take note.

The provocative shots, featured in February’s issue of Interview magazine, are simply gorgeously composed. This is bold fashion done well. Bold outfits, styled by Karl Templer – courtesy of Fashion Gone Rogue.

    I’d like to take a detour on this subject to know how in the world Chloe got to be such a fashion celebrity if you will. She was in a couple of movies, (Kids, Last Days of Disco, American Psycho) but then she started showing up around the fashion world as some sort of icon. She’s no model, and I’m just not seeing or understanding where we’re all supposed to be in “awe” of her.

    Someone please give me some insight into what I’m missing here with Chloe. Fun concept with the photos, and good photography on this.

    I honestly don’t know. Maybe her willingness to be ugly and edgy or something. I really have no idea. She did the “porno art” film and ever since then I’ve been seeing her. These photos are a interesting…ish….nothing really special. Honestly I thought they would have real teeth. This feels like an attempt to be scandalous, but it falls short. Kids these days smoke crack, rape, murder, steal, sext, it’s crazy world. You wanna be edgy your gonna have to work harder than this. Also hate the lighting in a few of these. If I see one more photo that feels like on camera speedlite im gonna lose my mind.

    Easy. Some art director has the hots for her.

    Viewing a woman posed as in Foto # 1 makes me want to throw UP. Tasteless and trashy…At least cross those scrawny legs.

  5. eddiebaba February 13, 2012 at 7:59 pm #

    McDean’s trying to be different without substance. Bad lighting, cross lighting (i.e., copy stand) and masculine poses without a purpose. If Terry Richardson can do it, why can’t Craig? Effort + Execution = What’s the grade, a B- or C+? Chase preaches using a “Try to be different” approach. Is this example achieving that? I wonder.

    Fashion models are NOT Glamor models – two different things. Fashion models tend to be interesting, instead of beautiful. Chloe Sevigny is Hot in her own way. Conventional beauty has little to do with Hot-ness.

    Good photography is in the eye of the beholder. You may not like what you are seeing, but Fashion magazine editors and their Advertisers like it just fine.

      You are correct c.d., that is the way it works. I’m not “blaming” per se Chloe for not being my idea of “hot”, it’s just to my eye she’s very boring, doesn’t have any ability on camera, and basically is just doing what anyone else off the street can do.

      In my beholding opinion, being a model (or a fashion celeb no less) means you put something out there that is really worth taking the time to look at on a more mass appeal. This to me looks like anything I can find on Model Mayhem. I love Craig’s work, he’s one of my favorite photographers hands down. But Chloe, again, why are we supposed to care?

      Is “being different” starting to trump being really good? Are we all supposed to go out and suck because it’s “being different”? I choose to work harder at my skills, to better what I do, and find a style that’s to my own liking. “Being different” for the sake of being different doesn’t mean that it’s automatically what the world wants to have shoved in their face. That’s just my opinion of course, it doesn’t mean I’m right, that’s for the public at large to decide.

    As a doddering oldster out here in the middle of the ocean, let me assure you there is a lot to enjoy about Chloe. It’s been my opinion for a long time that there are women who appear bored because they want to be entertained. Not knowing Chloe, of course, in her case this could just be her very highly developed ‘act’ but it works in real life for many — generally young — women who don’t know any other way to get attention. They NEED comfort, you see so there is an opportunity to do well by doing good for the observant gentlemen at hand who have some ideas about how to provide that.

    I’m 77 so what I’m saying may not be found in any books about modeling but I assure you it comes from some experience.

    Love the photos and great article written by Kim Gordon.

  9. Jessica February 15, 2012 at 6:59 am #

    It’s interesting that only men have replied and left negative feedback. I think this only goes to show that if this expression of “hotness” makes you uncomfortable or intimidates you – than the photos are working.

    • Matt Timmons February 19, 2012 at 8:51 am #

      @ Jessica- No, it just means she’s trying to go for shock value but it’s boring, we’ve seen it a million times. Try to think above turning this into sexism.

    That’s the rather definition of remaining nonrational, in conflict based completely within your sensations. I not really know what exactly everyone else on the planet is actually emotion, even so really do know which usually what they boast of being “love” is merely being and as with some other feeling the idea changes. I do think you require therapy regarding dismissing any realistic an important part of the human brain, you already know, any component that rationally thinks about the entire world surrounding you together with utilizes sense..
