Sevigny: I’m in control

Chloë Sevigny craves control over putting her image out into the world.

The 40-year-old star was labelled an 'It-Girl' in the 90s thanks to her eclectic style and work with Sassy magazine.

She's also made her mark in movies such as 1999's Boys Don't Cry and scored a role on recent Netflix show Bloodline.

Chloë teamed up with Rizzoli recently to release a book of her most iconic styles and it's all part of controlling her public image.

"I’m trying to put a little more effort into being involved in that process, which is really draining and not a lot of fun, and I don’t really want to do it, but now I’m trying to regain control of how I’m put out into the world," she explained to

"And [I’m] trying to do it less. I feel like this book was like, 'That’s it! No more photoshoots. I’ve done a million. I’m 40. It’s done, it’s over.' And then I’ve had to do more photoshoots than ever to promote the freaking book!"

Chloë hopes the tome will help people see the "real" her by viewing images she's carefully selected. She knows there will always be a lot of pictures on the Internet, but claims she'd rather "kill myself" than Google her name.

Ultimately, why people are so interested in her style remains a mystery.

"I just don’t really see it. Even in the book—this isn’t even a fashion book. I think there’s an authenticity to the way I dress, and that’s what people like, but I don’t see myself as having some sort of super-classic look or anything. I don’t really understand it," she shrugged.
