Actress Chloë Sevigny is giving back with the help of retailer Madewell.

French star Chloë Sevigny still lusts after a pair of vintage Levi's.

The model and actress knows what's what when it comes to fashion, and is often lauded for her stylish choices. Whether it's dressed up glamour or off duty comfort, the 40-year-old beauty rarely puts a fashion foot wrong. Talking about her most loved pair of jeans, Chloë keeps it cool with her choice.

"My favourite pair of jeans I’ve ever had was a pair of Levi’s from the '70s,” she told America's InStyle. “They were really super wide and had stretch in them, which is rare for a vintage Levi. I had them cut into a Ramones-style straight-leg and they’ve been repaired so many times.”

Blue jeans are a staple for the Oscar-nominee, and she most definitely has denim on the brain with her new venture. Chloë has teamed up with retailer Madewell, helping to publicise the brand's denim recycling programme. The aim is to collect 40,000 pairs of old jeans and turn them into housing insulation for Habitat for Humanity projects across the US.

"Anything that can raise awareness among young and old people about ways to dispose of unwanted, old garments is a great cause,” she noted. “I feel like girls are always on the eternal quest for the perfect jeans and so you’re always collecting and disposing. This is a great way to dispose of them.”

The project is also in partnership with Blue Jeans Go Green. As well as being able to give back to charity, the partnership may also benefit Chloë's own wardrobe as she's a huge fan of Madewell.

“I’m wearing them now!” she beamed of the label's new1offering. “I’m feeling these ones with the super high rise. I love their jeans."
