Sevigny Said What and F loads of Facts

If you're feeling like a particular magazine nerd, be sure to read below for F loads of useless but lovely facts and the answers to the "Say What" post.

It was Chloe Sevigny that said this about her Daddy "Always wore a trench coat, always wore hats... he was still very masculine, and very manly and rough and tumble, but still very elegant at the same time."

If there's anyone out there who inherited their style from a bow tied, sock suspender wearing sailor, it had to be her, didn't it?

Well, I thought it was a pretty hard question, but lots of you got it right (see, i knew font nerds read this blog..)

1.) the clue "you'll be sent to the Gallos, Kids!" was a reference to one time collaborator director Vincent Gallo and Kids was tacked on at the end to drop a hint about her first film.
2.)And then anyone really in the know, may have nodded their head in smugness that the song "Daddy never understood" which was on the music player is also in kids.
3.) The quote came from an interview with Chloe Sevigny by Humberto Leon for i-D magazine. Chloe was also Photographed by David Armstrong and styled by Benjamin Sturgill.
4.) Well done to sunni muchacha, d e n i z, Lola Eliza., flashy_shades, marie-kristine, editor and thesearchforchic who all answered correctly, you clever folk!
5.) but allure revealed her true nerd credentials and you're right, you are a "super freak" but we love you for it.

6.) Now playing: bennie and the jets by elton john

Oh I should have known it was Chloe - how could I not have guessed??
I have never read i-D magazine so I was doomed from the start lol (it's rarely sold here in Australia for some reason...)
I commend you on you extensive efforts, with regards to clues. You're dedication is really encouraging! Keep it coming! :)
Gosh I love your blog (in case you didn't already know lol)!

That is one hot pic of The Sevigny
I feel she has reached icon status like The Olsens and The Beckhams
So I'm giving her the 'The' treatment!
