Chloë Sevigny loves that vintage Chloé dresses are "not afraid to be really feminine".

The actress attended a cocktail party in Barneys New York last night in celebration of the label's 60th anniversary.

Not only does she share a name with the designer brand, but Chloë revealed she also possesses a vast wardrobe filled with the range.

“When I started collecting vintage, I started collecting early-Lagerfeld ’70s Chloé,” Chloë told “I just think it’s so pretty and girly in a way that’s not afraid to be really feminine.”

Chloë opted for a Lagerfeld for Chloé vintage black dress with a gold sequined violin in the middle that served as a reminder of the label’s quirky past.

The 38-year-old former model's obsession with Chloé garments, and the name itself, started at a young age.

“When I was little I got Chloé perfume, every birthday, every Christmas, from extended family members,” she said. “I didn’t know any other Chloés. I lived in a really small town so to me it seemed really chic, my name, because with the perfume and whatnot. But now everybody’s named Chloé and everybody’s dog is named Chloé and it’s not as elegant a name to me anymore.”

The American star has a talent for fashion design herself. The funky and fashionable actress has created lines for Opening Ceremony in collaboration with the founders and Kenzo designers Carol Lim and Humberto Leon.
