FASHION FLASH: Chloë Sevigny is heading to the French Mediterranean city of Hyères this spring. The actress will be among 10 members of the fashion jury at the 29th edition of the International Festival of Fashion and Photography, which runs from April 25 to 28 there.
“Chloë has a very strong point of view on fashion.…When you look at the way she has dressed from when she was 16 until now, she represented all these different very big moments in fashion. She has gone through many interesting stages in her own fashion choices,” said Humberto Leon, who will preside over the jury this year, along with his Kenzo codesigner Carol Lim.

They were speaking at a cocktail event Wednesday in Paris.
“I feel I have been consistent in my mid-30s now onward,” Sevigny claimed, wearing a Kenzo black dress and a bandana around her head. “I am trying not to care as much, not being concerned about being judged. That is the stage I am at right now.”
The actress has her hands full, starring in a film directed by her friend Tara Subkoff, working on a style book published by Rizzoli and her next collection for Opening Ceremony. Sevigny was part of the committee that on Wednesday chose the 10 finalists for the festival, who will be revealed Thursday.
