It’s 20 years to the day since Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCullough landed on the NYFW schedule and started dressing the world’s coolest women in Proenza Schouler. Cut to 2023 and, in celebration of their big birthday, the designer duo enlisted the coolest of these cool women to step onto their catwalk: Chloë Sevigny.
Dressed in a sleek black structural jacket cinched at the waist with a leather tie and a buttery soft leather pencil skirt that rippled like water as she moved, Sevigny strutted out in front of bestie Natasha Lyonne, who sat on the sidelines at the show.
This is of course nowhere close to being the actor’s first rodeo when it comes to runway appearances. She’s also previously walked for Miu Miu, Simone Rocha, and Kim Gordon’s X-Girl way back in the early 90s, as part of a guerilla show which went down in NY fashion infamy, and was the face of Proenza's diffusion line PSWL in 2017.
Sevigny’s cameo follows on from another major casting moment last season, when Dazed fave Arca walked alongside Kendall Jenner and Mariacarla Boscono. Right now, the musician is also starring in Proenza’s SS23 campaign, and just had another turn on the catwalk at Casey Cadwallader’s Mugler gag-fest – check that out in the gallery below.
