Whether sporting a high-concept Balenciaga dress to a Hollywood event or performing unmentionable sexual acts on film (paging Vincent Gallo), Chloë Sevigny has always been a risk taker. But recently, the indie darling has been spotted working one of the safest runway trends of past seasons: black-and-white ensembles. Of course, the actress has managed to add her own subversive touch. As far back as February, Sevigny employed the color-free look at a Whitney Biennial party, donning an androgynous white Dolce & Gabbana pantsuit and skinny black tie. And since then, she has fully embraced the trend as a veritable uniform, though one with a full range of incarnations, from her girlish, ruffled Yves Saint Laurent frock at the Costume Institute gala to a sleek, Cy Twombly-inspired Proenza Schouler dress at the CFDAs and a litany of monochromatic appearances (black bubble dress, white jacket, demure white top and black satin skirt) during the Cannes International Film Festival. One has to wonder: Hasn’t anyone told her they shoot color film nowadays?
