Vice magazine photoshoot: Chloë Sevigny, 1994

"You got it buddy: the large print giveth and the small print taketh away" — Tom Waits

So the day after i take a side-swipe at Vice magazine they go and publish the best thing i see all day (applicable to quite a few days, actually).

It seems they're pretending it's 1994, for some odd reason (opportunity for lots of dramatic irony seems to be the main reason).

Anyway, this gives them cause to reprint a '94 photoshoot of gorgeous Chloë Sevigny1 modelling stuff by X-Girl, Kim Gordon's fashion imprint, so even if i didn't love the nineties it'd have been worth it for that alone.

Chloë had made her first screen appearance two years earlier in Sonic Youth's "Sugar Kane" video, spraying champagne over a crowd in a X-Girl wedding dress, a manoeuvre which gets a nod in this very shoot.

Bonus Sonic Youth video

1 If you know me, you probably also know i'm a hopeless Chloë Sevigny fanboy.
