In true NYC it-girl fashion, Sevigny wore not one, not two, but three dresses for the occasion. Sounds about right.
Actor, model, indie icon, Chloë Sevigny has long been top of our cool list. Feted for her fearless approach to fashion, she’s been turning heads with her sartorial choices for years now.
Discovered at age 17 and immediately offered a magazine internship alongside her modelling gig, Sevigny’s career took off from there and thus began a decades-long love affair with design.
Soon dubbed the new “it-girl of the New York party scene”, she’s gone on to model for everyone from Louis Vuitton to Miu Miu, was one of the ambassadors and faces of Chloé’s Chloé fragrance from 2007 to 2010, and has appeared on the cover of countless publications – always looking incredibly chic (almost painfully so).
“I guess people think of me as a strong individual, and strongly individual,” she once told Vogue.
I’d trust her with my life, or my wardrobe, at least. I’d definitely trust her with planning my future wedding too as Chloë Sevigny certainly knows how to throw a party judging by her recent nuptials.
Breaking the internet with photos of the most gorgeous ceremony in Darien, Connecticut, Sevigny walked down the aisle in an Haute Couture wedding gown designed by Glenn Martens for Jean Paul Gaultier. Floor-length, off-white in colour and made from sheer tulle with exaggerated shoulder detailing, she paired the look with sleeked-back hair and a bouquet of calla lilies. Her husband, Siniša Ma?kovi?, opted for a black Bottega tuxedo by Mattieu Blazy.
Two years after tying the knot in a secret ceremony at a New York City courthouse and the couple finally got to celebrate their love with all their nearest and dearest – their 2-year-old son, Vanja, included. “Yesterday was undoubtedly the greatest day of my life. So blessed to finally share our love and commitment with friends and family. So many people put so much work into making it just perfect, so from the bottom of my bursting heart, thank you,” Sevigny wrote on Instagram.
Unsurprisingly, the entire thing was ridiculously à la mode. There was a vintage Mercedes convertible, complete with a ‘Just Married’ sign and trailing Modelo cans tied to the bumper. There were glasses of cigarettes (very Mary-Kate Olsen), an ice sculpture and multiple outfit changes – Sevigny also wore two other gowns over the course of the night: one Loewe by Jonathan Anderson, the other Mugler by Casey Cadwallader. There was even a post-wedding afterparty at Chloë’s brother’s NYC nightclub, Casablanca.
As close friend Derek Blasberg put it, “it was touching and sweet and very cool”. One for the ages, no doubt.
