At age 17, Chloe Sevigny was spotted on an East Village street by Andrea Linett, a fashion editor of Sassy magazine, who was so impressed by her style that she asked her to model for the magazine; she was later made an intern. When recounting the event, Sevigny recalled that Linnett ”just liked the hat I was wearing.”
She later modeled in the magazine as well as for X-girl, the subsidiary fashion label of the Beastie Boys' ”X-Large”, designed by Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth, which then led to an appearance in the music video for Sonic Youth's ”Sugar Kane”.

It was funny and awkward—we both laughed quite a bit. And we'd been intimate in the past, so it wasn't so weird. If you're not challenging yourself and taking risks, then what's the point of being an artist?
