Chloë Stevens Sevigny (; born November 18, 1974) is an American actress, model, and fashion designer. She is mostly known for her work in independent films, often appearing in controversial or experimental features. She is the recipient of several accolades, including a Golden Globe, a Satellite Award, and an Independent Spirit Award, as well as Academy Award and Screen Actors Guild Award nominations. She also has a career in fashion design concurrent with her acting work. Over the years, her alternative fashion sense has earned her a reputation as a "style icon".After graduating high school, Sevigny found work as a model. She appeared in music videos for Sonic Youth and The Lemonheads, and acquired "it girl" status. In 1995, she made her film debut in Kids. A string of roles in small-scale features throughout the late 1990s established her as a prominent force on the independent film scene. She received particular attention for her portrayal of Lana Tisdel in Boys Don't Cry (1999). This was followed by appearances in American Psycho (2000), Party Monster, Dogville, Shattered Glass, and The Brown Bunny (all 2003). Her participation in the latter caused considerable controversy. Sevigny's other film credits include Melinda and Melinda (2004), Manderlay; Broken Flowers (both 2005), Zodiac (2007), The Killing Room; My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done? (both 2009), Mr. Nice (2010), Antibirth (2016), and Lizzie (2018).
