Geek Girl Of The Week: Chlöe Sevigny

Who: Chlöe Sevigny

Type of Geek: Retro Geek

A big part of being a retro geek girl is acting cool. Just like the tagline for that old-school brand of deodorant Dry Idea, you never wanna let them see you sweat. That said, if cool were a commodity, Chlöe Sevigny would be Warren Buffet—or at least Jimmy Buffet. (Goodness knows those Parrotheads have afforded him to live pretty damn comfortably.)

Chlöe’s carefree attitude applies to both her acting choices and her personal style. Whether she’s giving fellatio to Vincent Gallo in The Brown Bunny or wearing an oversized teal doily to the annual Met Costume Institute Gala, she doesn’t care what other people think, and that’s what being a retro geek girl is all about.

Well, that and having a good sense of humor when people like Drew Droege poke fun at your likeness.
