1. CHLOE SEVIGNY
Known throughout the mid 90’s as a fashion impresario, Chloe Sevigny has graced magazine cover after magazine cover. She was heavily involved in the fashion scene as a model, an intern for Sassy Magazine, and just as an overall cool girl. In 1994 the then 19 year old actress/model caught the attention of journalist Jay McInerney and a 7 page article got written about her in The New Yorker. It was through that article that Sevigny got the title “coolest girl in the world”. That same year, the actress received critical acclaim for her role in the movie Boys Don’t Cry.
Sevigny is talented as she is enigmatic but she is no Hollywood beauty. Perpetually looking in need of a bath, her hair looks like it’s never been brushed since 1999 and her dark eye bags look like she’s never slept since then either. It’s not that she doesn’t have what it takes to look beautiful. Let’s face it, she’s never going to be Charlize Theron stunning, but she could at least try and make an effort?
2. ROSSY DE PALMA
Described by many as “Picasso come to life” we don’t really know whether to look at Rossy De Palma as an unattractive Hollywood star or a masterpiece with abstract mismatched features—Picasso style. De Palma has enjoyed a long and rich career filled with interesting projects but she started out as Marisa in the movie Women on the Verge of a Breakdown, directed by Pedro Almodóvar. In the late 80’s her “interesting” look made her a sought-after muse for designers such as Jean-Paul Gaultier and Thierry Mugler.
We understand the fascination with this woman—sort of. She is not entirely ugly but her exaggerated features belong more to the ugly step-sister archetype instead of to the Cinderellas of Hollywood. A kind of potato shaped head, a big pair of eyes where the left one is wonky, an oddly thin but prominent nose, a bow-shaped mouth filled with large uneven teeth; it is a wonder how a combination of all those features seems to have worked for Rossy De Palma.
