Chloe Sevigny recently posed for a nude photoshoot over Zoom while pregnant with her first child.

Due to the coronavirus lockdown, the Boys Don’t Cry actress, who is due to welcome her first child with boyfriend Sinisa Mackovic in three weeks, had to serve as location scout, hairstylist, make-up artist, costume designer, and creative director of her photoshoot with photographer Elizaveta Porodina for the May 2020 cover of The Cut.

In an unprecedented move, Sevigny and Porodina worked together to conduct the photoshoot over video conferencing tool Zoom, with the 45-year-old posing for a range of risque nude shots from the comfort of her own home and Porodina taking the photos.

On the cover, Sevigny can be seen kneeling away from the camera on a bed and turning back to face it, with her bare bottom and baby bump on display. She is rocking a classic red lip, given her hair a 1920s-style wave, and has accessorised with Simone Rocha earrings and a Batsheva bag, which is draped over the back of her shoulder.

In another shot, she reclines on a couch with her body angled away from the camera but her face looking directly at it, while another is a close-up of her bump, which is poking out of an open vintage blue robe. Her hands are folded together underneath her belly to protect her modesty. Sevigny also posed around her New York home in a variety of floaty dresses.

“In this situation, the subject has a lot more control and much more artistic license than usual… They’re going to be the one adjusting the camera. They’re going to be the one making decisions,” Porodina explained. “When I learned that she was pregnant and that she’s in New York City right now, I knew it wouldn’t be just another portrait shoot; it would be a documentary piece about a person who’s living through a critical event in her personal life, during a crisis in collective human history.

“Even through Zoom, Chloe had so much charisma and energy. She exudes elegance, and a mix of something extremely sexy and intellectual at the same time.”

Chloe Sevigny: ‘Style has gone out of the window during lockdown’

Chloe Sevigny has found it hard to stay fashionable while pregnant during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Boys Don’t Cry actress, who is known for her eclectic sense of style and love of vintage fashion, is currently holed up in her New York home with her boyfriend, gallery director Sinisa Mackovic. The couple is preparing to welcome their first child together in three weeks’ time.

But in an interview with The Cut, Sevigny admitted her sense of style and beauty routine has fallen by the wayside during coronavirus lockdown.

“My boyfriend suggested that we have a dress-up day, but we never implemented it. Today, I put on mascara and he was like, ‘Ooh, did you put on make-up?'” she recalled. “But it’s hard, between corona and my state, to be fashionable. That’s kind of gone out the window. I keep reminding him, though. I’m like, ‘People think I’m a really stylish woman!'”

Sevigny also heaped praise on American fashion designer Norma Kamali for making stretchy outfits, such as flared trousers and turtleneck dresses, that she has worn throughout her pregnancy. She is “obsessed” with clothing brand La Fetiche too.

“I ordered one of their shirts for breastfeeding. Everyone was like, ‘You need shirts that button down the front’,” Sevigny explained. “For some reason, I didn’t have that many that were fitting over my very large, new bosom. Everyone talks about your belly changing, but your boobs really change the most. It’s terrifying.”

The 45-year-old hasn’t just had to update her wardrobe to include maternity style – she’s also needed bigger shoes.

“Because of the swelling, I also had to size up for comfort shoes that I can slip on and off. I got these slip-on Birkenstock Mary Jane shoes, which is really giving in to pregnancy style,” she admitted.

Chloe Sevigny has been wearing flared leggings to try and “balance out” her blossoming baby bump.

Earlier this month, the Big Love actress went public with the happy news by showing off her growing stomach as she stepped out with boyfriend Sinisa Mackovic in New York City.

Chloe is well-known for her eclectic sense of style, and in a new interview with WWD, shared that she is determined to keep mixing designer pieces with vintage garments long into her pregnancy.

“Norma Kamali has been a godsend. I always loved Norma Kamali,” she commented of her go-to designer. “She makes lots of stretch. These stretch pants that go high, up over the belly, they’re flared.

“It’s almost impossible to find flared pants from a (maternity) company, which I think is surprising because I think it’s better for the silhouette to have a little flare at the bottom to balance out this big thing happening in the middle… She makes the perfect flared leggings.”

The mother-to-be is a big fan of the 74-year-old designer’s gender-inclusive collections and is also impressed by her approach to sustainability in fashion.

“She’s always been a real champion of vintage, and she’d always sell in her collection vintage pieces. I love her whole look, her whole vibe, her whole ethos. Everything,” the 45-year-old gushed.

Chloe Sevigny is “addicted” to applying a popular rose-scented balm.

The Boys Don’t Cry actress has quite the collection of cosmetics, and alongside her Little Flower perfume that she made for Regime des Fleurs, has now shared that she is a massive fan of Smith’s Rosebud Salve. Asked about what smell she would have on her hands forever in an interview with The Cut, Chloe responded: “Rosebud Salve, because I already have it on there. I always use it on my fingertips so it’s already always on my hands and I actually can’t live without it, so it will be forever. I always have it on. I’m addicted.”

Smith’s Rosebud Salve features a rosy aroma and pink-rose colour, and can be used on lips, cuts, cuticles, and patches of dry skin. Other celebrity fans include Beyonce and Natalie Portman.

Elsewhere in the chat, Chloe shared that she likes the smell of popcorn and lily of the valley, while her entire home is fragranced with Regime des Fleurs scents.

“I have the Swans candle, the Leis interior spray, and I wear Little Flower. And it also smells like me. Everybody’s always like, ‘Oh my God your house always smells like you.’ So it smells like whatever I smell like, which is hopefully pleasant. Some sort of pheromone, which has worked okay for me thus far,” the 44-year-old smiled.

Launched in August, Little Flower features notes of blackcurrant, peony, pomelo, Turkish rose absolute, and black tea. The perfume retails for $205 (£169).

Chloe Sevigny: ‘Hollywood still feels pretty old-fashioned’

Chloe Sevigny says it’s “very hard” to accept that women filmmakers are still in the minority in Hollywood.

The actress, who stars in the upcoming Jim Jarmusch zombie horror The Dead Don’t Die alongside Bill Murray and Adam Driver, opened up about her frustration that the gender balance is still unequal.

In an interview with Deadline, the 44-year-old said she was more “at ease” being around – and working with – women, as she feels objectified by men.

“We’re talking about it, we’re more vocal about it, but it still feels pretty old-fashioned,” Sevigny explained. “Especially when you walk on set. I was making The Act in Savannah and there are female filmmakers and producers, and a lot of women involved, but I still walked on set and I was the only woman in the room and there were like 40 men around me.

“And you’re like, ‘Oh yeah, right. Where are all the ladies?’ And that’s very hard.”

She also admitted she felt comfortable on the set of The Dead Don’t Die, especially when she was playing the part of a zombie, because she wasn’t sexualised.

“Doing Jim Jarmusch’s movie, the day when I was a zombie was the most comfortable day for me because I was like, ‘None of these men are going to be sexualizing me or looking at me in that way.’ And I don’t know if that’s more telling about who I am or how I see things, but that was the best day,” she confessed.

And Sevigny will always be eager to sign up for any future female-driven films, as she’s far more interested in women than men.

“I think I’m more interested in telling stories about women because I understand women. I mean, I like boys, I like sleeping with boys and flirting with them. But I’m more interested in hanging out with girls and talking to girls,” she shared.

Jim Jarmusch’s zombie movie to open Cannes

Jim Jarmusch’s star-studded zombie thriller has been picked to open next month’s (May19) Cannes Film Festival in France.

The Dead Don’t Die, which features Bill Murray, Chloe Sevigny, Adam Driver, Selena Gomez, Iggy Pop, and Tilda Swinton, will kick off the annual movie spectacular on 14 May.

The film focuses on the residents of peaceful Centerville, who find themselves having to battle an army of the undead.

The movie, which Jarmusch also wrote, will be among the competition at this year’s festival.

The filmmaker has been a regular at Cannes for years, screening films like Mystery Train, Down By Law, Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai, and Dead Man at the event.

Oscar-winning Birdman and The Revenant director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu will front this year’s (19) festival jury, becoming the first Mexican to take the role.

“Cannes is a festival that has been important to me since the beginning of my career,” Inarritu previously said in a statement. “I am humbled and thrilled to return this year with the immense honour of presiding over the Jury.

“Cinema runs through the veins of the planet and this festival has been its heart. We on the jury will have the privilege to witness the new and excellent work of fellow filmmakers from all over the planet. This is a true delight and a responsibility, that we will assume with passion and devotion.”

Inarritu follows in the footsteps of his Babel star Cate Blanchett, who served as jury president in 2018 and awarded the Palme d’Or to Shoplifters with the help of jury members including Ava DuVernay and Kristen Stewart.

The official selection line-up for the 2019 Cannes Film Festival will be unveiled next week 18 April. It is expected to include Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Spanish moviemaker Pedro Almodovar’s Pain And Glory, and Elton John biopic Rocketman, which stars Taron Egerton as the British rock star.

Farfetch has announced a new content initiative to help consumers discover the latest trends, with the help of a number of famous faces and industry pioneers.

The online retailer has recruited Chloe Sevigny, Riz Ahmed, Adwoa Aboah and Blondey McCoy to be part of the Farfetch Communities platform, which will feature specially curated shopping edits and allow users to share daily fashion inspiration.

Alongside the celebrities, the community will also include Farfetch’s in-house creative team, industry figures, local influencers and boutique owners who work with the platform.

The idea is to bring together “people who are shaping the cultural landscape from all corners of the globe.”

Farfetch chief executive officer and co-chairman Jose Neves expressed his hope that the initiative will help the retailer keep up with fierce online competition.

“Since Day One, Farfetch has brought the world’s curators and creators of fashion together with people all around the world,” he told WWD. “We wanted to take that a step further by building out Farfetch Communities to create an inspiring way to help our customers, discover the things they love.”

He also considered the changing landscape of retail, and highlighted the need for brands to produce fresh, regular content to keep customers engaged.

Reflecting on the platform’s ability to connect with consumers globally, Sevigny explained she hopes it will inspire people to take greater risks when shopping for themselves.

“I hope to inspire buyers to explore something new and perhaps try designers that they’ve never worn before,” the 44-year-old actress said.

Chloe Sevigny is deliberately nasty on set

Chloe Sevigny is deliberately obnoxious when she arrives on film sets to ensure crew members don’t mess her around.

The Boys Don’t Cry star admits she can be demanding, so makes sure she’s at her meanest early in a shoot to make sure her assistants know what they’re letting themselves in for.

“I’m usually really b**chy,” the 44-year-old told Total Film. “I think it’s better to start off mean and then turn nice, so I usually come with an attitude. I like to be challenging. I like the PAs to know that I’m not going to stand for a certain kind of f**kery.”

One thing she insists on while filming a movie is getting her own meals – as she worries she’ll have a meltdown if someone gets her food or drink order wrong.

“I have my own teacup, strainer, and loose leaf teas,” Chloe explained. “I don’t like anyone else to get me food and drinks; I have to get it myself. If they get it wrong, I’m gonna have a mini-obnoxious actress spiral.”

The actress’ latest film is biopic Lizzie, in which she plays title character Lizzie Borden, a social outcast who bonds with her maid, played by Kristen Stewart, as an escape from her domineering father and stepmother – who both come to a grisly end.

Chloe says that she found filming on location in Savannah, Georgia disconcerting – but the Twilight star helped her through.

“It was great because Kristen and I really got on, but it was a really weird shoot,” she added. “The location had a weird otherworldly feel to it. It felt very haunted.”

Lizzie, which is in cinemas around the world now, gets its U.K. release on 14 December (18).

Joey King shows off bald head on Instagram

Independence Day: Resurgence actress Joey King has shaved off her long hair for a new role.

The 19-year-old star has been cast in Hulu’s true crime series The Act, alongside Patricia Arquette and Chloe Sevigny.

Based on a Buzzfeed article by Michelle Dean, the show will recount the story of Gypsy Rose Blanchard, played by Joey, and her murdered mother Dee Dee Blanchard, portrayed by Patricia.

Sharing a video on Instagram of the shaving process, Joey told her followers: “My name for the next 4 months, is Gypsy Rose Blanchard. This story is very disturbing and I am honoured to be able to portray it. What a wild ride this will be on “The Act”.”

And in an interview with Allure, the teen star admitted she had no reservations when it came to clipping her longs locks.

“I’ve never really had an attachment to my hair,” she shrugged. “I couldn’t care less what happens to it. No part of me was nervous or was second-guessing it. So many people would ask me, ‘Are you really scared?’ or ‘Are you nervous?’ or say, ‘You’re so brave.’ And I’d go, ‘I’m not brave, I’m just cutting my hair off.'”

It’s not the first time Joey has had a razor-short haircut for work; in Christopher Nolan’s 2012 Batman flick The Dark Knight Rises, she was nearly bald for her role as a child prisoner, and she shaved her head on camera in Zach Braff movie Wish I Was Here two years later.

“I know this sounds crazy, and not a lot of people will agree with me, but I think every woman should shave her head at least once in her life,” she smiled. “It’s not like they’re going to regret it 10 years down the line when their hair is long again. It’s something that’s very freeing, really fun, and really empowering.”
