Chlöe Sevigny is Selling Her Clothes to Benefit LGBTQ Youth

Chlöe Sevigny has long been beloved by the queer community, ever since Jay McInerney declared her “the coolest girl in the world” in a 1994 New Yorker profile. Since then, she’s earned acclaim for her roles in such titles as Kids, Boys Don’t Cry, Party Monster, and American Horror Story. She’s also remained a fashion it girl throughout all of it.

And luckily for us, she’s sharing a little bit of her it girl fashion with the masses. Pieces from Sevigny’s closet are up for grabs onThe Real Real. Items like a Balenciaga wrap top, an Agent Provocateur slip dress, and a Gucci embellished sweatshirt are available for those who want a piece of the actress. There were even a few men’s items up for grabs, but only a Supreme button-up shirt remains.

“I’m trying to shed more and acquire less, to only hold on to the most sentimental of pieces,” Sevigny told The Real Real’s blogReal Style. “My first communion dress, prom dresspieces I wore on the most special of occasions and pieces that were always in heavy rotation. I’m also a true vintage addict and get a rush from the thrill of the hunt, so a heavy turnover has always been consistent in the life of my closet.”

The sale is for a good cause: A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Hetrick-Martin Institute. The organization creates a safe and supportive environment for young people of all sexual orientations and identities.

“HMI helps provide a safe place for our most vulnerable population: trans youth,” Sevigny says. “Youth members range from 13 to 24. ‘HMI’s Center for LGBTQ Youth Advocacy and Capacity Building, advocates on behalf of LGBTQ youth by influencing policy on local, national and international levels’this is where change needs to happen.”
