Chloë Sevigny devoted to Gucci

Chloë Sevigny could never take selfies like Lily-Rose Depp, as she feels horrible in them.

Chloë Sevigny didn't care what the press said about a recent Gucci dress she wore, as she's in awe of what Alessandro Michele is doing at the label.

The model-and-actress is known for her unique style, with many claiming she's the definition of cool. However, fashion fans were left divided over her yellow choice at the 2015 LACMA Art+Film Gala in November (15).

"It was a little wild, and the tabloids love to make fun of me, so this was like feeding (disparaging comments) to them on a silver spoon. But f**k it," Chloë smirked to Britain's ES Magazine. "I love what Alessandro (creative director) is doing at Gucci."

Even if the tabloids mock her clothes, Chloë's indie style has always won over fashionistas. At 41, Chloë could still get away with being the laidback 20-something who rocked London's Cool Britannia Britpop scene in the '90s, and she hopes people still find her relevant.

"Oh, I hope not. I hope I’m still cool," she smiled. "I think Jim Jarmusch is the coolest person I know. Jane Fonda is still cool. I hung out with Anjelica Huston the other night - she’s way cool. I hope I can hang on to something. I think there’s a confidence, and a vulnerability, in those people. You feel like they know who they are and there’s a true sense of that - they’re not phoney."

One trend she can't buy into though is the culture of selfies. Despite coming alive in front of a camera, Chloë despises the thought of taking solo shots.

"I looked at Lily-Rose Depp’s Instagram and it’s all pictures of herself - and people love that!" she said, astonished. "I’m just not interested in inviting people in that way.

"I can’t do it. Even when I’m on my way somewhere and my boyfriend’s like, 'Show me a picture!' I try, look at it, and feel horrible."
