Since it's impossible for us to be Chloë Sevigny, we've settled for wearing (or at least lusting after) her collections for Opening Ceremony. And now we sort of want to be her more. The designer teamed up for a photo shoot and interview with
magazine, where she dished about the motivation behind the line. Her talk reveals that, unsurprisingly, the collection has a bit of intended shock, grit, and sex appeal. "When I was backstage with the models before the show, I remember saying to them, 'I want you to go out there with the attitude of someone who hasn’t seen her boyfriend in a while, and who intends to show up at his doorstep and knock his socks off,'" Sevigny says. Sigh, if only we could do so, too!
The interview also gave way to a few more unexpected twists, including that Chlo is a big American Idol fan, and although she doesn't consider her a celebrity, she'd definitely let Snooki wear her clothes, going so far as to explain that once, after Nicky Hilton said she didn't "get" her clothes, she "was like, 'Good! I’m glad she doesn’t get it. It’s not for her. Besides, what’s there to get with clothes? So if Snooki wants to wear my clothes, go for it. I think she’d look a lot better in them." Damn! But her Jersey Shore
lovefetish doesn't end there, she admits, "I do find that JWoWW is sexy in a really weird way. It’s like that sexy, dirty kind of girl—not dirty, but like a hot mess. We’ve all gotten too drunk and acted crazy at parties, but I don’t maintain that and I’m kind of fascinated by those girls who do." And we're fascinated by YOU, Chloe! Indeed, the images shot for Bullett look so flirty, exciting, and effortlessly cool, they skate the line of "sexy, dirty," but leave out the hot mess.... at least for now.
