Proof ChloГ« Sevigny Is the Underrated Beauty Icon of Our Generation


Happy birthday, ChloГ« Sevigny! Can you believe this human is 45 years old today?! Personally, I had to double-take when I saw the number. How has she managed to look 25 years oldВ for the past 25 years?

While the actress and style It girl has managed to age with impossible grace, her look hasВ evolved drastically since she first appeared on the art film scene's radar in the mid-'90s. Sevigny is one of those actresses everyone recognizes-after all, her rГ©sumГ© features cult TV shows and films like Harmony Korine'sВ KidsВ andВ Gummo, critically acclaimedВ Boys Don't Cry, and more recently,В American Horror Story.В

But Sevigny isn't always at the forefront of the beauty conversation. Which, when you take a moment to reflect on her aesthetic, seems absurd. Sevigny has such a unique beauty perspective in Hollywood. She's dared to rock androgynous looks, retro hairstyles, bleached brows, and even blinding lip colors, way before any of it was cool.

So today on her birthday, we're celebrating one of the most underrated beauty icons of our era.

Read onВ to see nine inspiring images of ChloГ« Sevigny throughout the years!

Man Repeller

Head-to-Toe Androgyny

The androgynous ChloГ« of the early '90s is one of our favorites. Few could pull off an ultra-cropped cut like her.

Opening Ceremony

Bowl Cut Made Chic

More sick '90s ChloГ«. Somehow she makes shimmery rust eye shadow and an actual bowl cut look fly. Re-create her eye makeup with SigmaВ Eye Shadow Palette in Warm NeutralsВ ($39).

Chill-OutChair

Bleach on Bleach

Here's ChloГ« in 1997 on the set ofВ Harmony Korine'sВ Gummo, rocking ice-blond feathered hair and bleached brows to match.

Interview

Throwback Femininity

This stunning shot comes from a 2000 shoot for Interview. The classically feminine vintage hairstyle and red lip portray ChloГ« in a whole new light.

Dolce & Gabbana

60s Runway

Here's our girl slaying the Dolce & Gabbana runway show in 2005, looking all '60s disco in teased blond hair and Twiggy-esque lashes. Get her spidery mascara look with MaybellineВ Volum' Express The Colossal Spider Effect MascaraВ ($6).

Girly Meets Grunge

Flash-forward to 2010 and this grungy aesthetic. Slicked-back hair, clean skin, and an orange-red lip makeВ this the model-off-dutyВ look of our dreams. Copy that killer lip color withВ RevlonВ Super Lustrous Lipstick in Fire & IceВ ($5).

Tomboy

Polished Bob

ChloГ«'s 2012 shoot for Tomboy has her looking so chic it hurts. We love our girl in this spicy red bob.
