Chloe Sevigny honed her personal shopping skills yesterday afternoon at Hugo Boss's 14th Street outpost where lucky HB shopper, Adele Fevrier, won the brand's coveted Celebrity Shopping Experience challenge. Chic was on-hand to watch Sevigny in action while a sparkly Bryan Boy mugged for the flashing cams. But, first! We grilled the actress using some of our favorite Chloe Sevigny flicks.    

If These Walls Could Talk, what would they say?
Oh god. I'm so bad at things like these. Is this for The Daily?

Yep! Are you a Party Monster?
I'm trying to reel it in. When I party, I party hard.

Any party dos and don'ts?
Leave before 3 a.m. or before you get too dark and dirty. Always leave them wanting more.

If you could time travel to The Last Days of Disco, what would you want to do?
I'd wanna go see some punk. That was much more interesting during the disco era than disco. I'd love to go to CBGB and hear the iconic New York bands.

Do you believe in Zodiac signs?
I read my horoscope every day in The New York Post. I'm a Scorpio, and it tends to always be on the money. I'm very tempestuous like a Scorpio. 

In honor of your movie The Wait, what are you waiting for these days?
I'm waiting for my mother to stop being so critical! 

Have you met your Mr. Nice?
Unfortunately not, but I'm trying. I've been on a few dates. It's hard. The problem is I don't like them too nice.

Haus party on the West Coast! Haus Interior, the New York-based home decor boutique headlined by interior designer Nina Freudenberger, threw an haute bash last night in West Hollywood to debut their new Cali outpost on West 3rd Street. Rawdon Messenger manned the deejay table, overlooking a crowd throwing back Gosling's Rum and scoping out the mid-century offerings from vintage furniture to tabletop tomes. “Our favorite part of the Haus Interior aesthetic is combining a modern twist with natural and traditional materials, and to me, the West Coast fully embodies this design principle," shared Freudenberger. In attendance: Lulu Frost designer Lisa Salzer, VP of Fred Segal Karen Meena, designer Magda Berliner, MANNIN fine jewelry designer Suzanne Donegan, and stylist Maryam Malakpour.

A Moment With...Courtney Love at Cinema Society

More tidbits from last night! Courtney Love dropped into the Armani Ristorante for the Albert Nobbs afterparty, hosted by the Cinema Society, to talk about her newest hobby and one of her oldest buds.

What's new?
I’m trying to discipline myself to write a blog because I have to write a book. I started one on perfume, but I can't get through it.

Is your book going to be about perfume, too?
No! My book isn’t going to be about perfume. I started the blog because I wanted to write about something lifestyle-related and I’m obsessed with perfume.

What blogs do you follow?
BaseNotes.com is a great perfume blog. My friend Jane Pratt has a blog. I told her to do the site out of my house this week, which is what she’s doing. That way she can send someone who does copy to do my blog. I’m a good letter writer, and I write poetry and lyrics, obviously, but writing a blog is really hard. That's why I'm hanging out with a writer tonight.

What's the secret behind your long-lasting friendship with Jane?
She knows everything about everything. And she keeps secrets really well. She’s discreet and hilarious at the same time.

History Lessons with Hal Rubenstein

Still looking for the perf holiday gift? We found it!  InStyle fashion director Hal Rubenstein's new book, 100 Unforgettable Dresses ($35! Deal!) pays homage to the most influential looks from the past century. Narciso Rodriguez's wedding gown for Caroline Bessette-Kennedy? Check! McQueen's Hologram Gown? Oui! Chanel's LBD? Obvi! Even Phyllis Diller's Tent Dresses get a shout-out. We grabbed a moment with the CFDA 2011 Founder's Award winner when he was signing copies at Joe's on Mercer Street to dish about his labor of love. 


How did you come up with this idea?

Harper Collins approached me about doing a book, but they wanted to do great dresses in fashion. I said, why limit ourselves to just the dresses in fashion? That's not really the world of fashion: the world of fashion is what fascinates the public and gets them excited. They look at the runway, but they also look at movies and television and comedy and politics, red carpet, the evening news. In this day in age, fashion comes at you from everywhere. 


What are some of the dresses we're seeing in the book?

Elizabeth Hurley in Versace showing up at the Four Weddings and A Funeral premiere in the safety pin dress, and becoming world famous over night because of one dress. Marilyn Monroe singing happy birthday to JFK—you don't forget that. She had the dress made in secret. She said she wanted to wear a dress that only Marilyn Monroe could wear. We look at Marc Jacobs' grunge collection, which got him fired and then changed the way people dressed for seven years. Audrey Hepburn's little black dress and Bette Davis's dress in All About Eve...


Does every dress have a little blurb?

There are 40,000 words. This is a story book with over 100 illustrations. The important thing for me is that every single one of these dresses has a story behind it. 


Let's talk about DVF's wrap dress..

An incredible idea of a dress that looks great on every woman. It weighs nothing, you can throw it in the washing machine. Diane (von Furstenberg) was one of the original trunk show people. She went around from store to store to store. What woman in America didn't want to meet a princess? It was a brilliant dress and a brilliant marketing campaign. This was during the seventies during women's lib and she was saying, feel good in a dress, beat men at their own game. All of these dresses have a social context.


Is J.Lo's Versace dress from the Grammys in the book?

What do you think? (laughs) It's the most famous red carpet dress ever! It's the most celebrated. What's interesting about it is that she's not the first person to wear the dress. It wasn't made for her. Amber Valletta wore it down the runway. Donatella wore it to an event in New York. I was with her and nobody said a word either time, but nobody was built like Jennifer Lopez.  


Was it hard to pick 100?

I had about 75  of them within 25 minutes. They were all stuck in my head for years just waiting to get out. I knew a lot of the stories and I wanted to tell them. It's a great way for people to learn about fashion. With all the bloggers and stuff online, we see everything instantly, but nobody looks back. Nobody knows the stories of great dress making or seismic changes in our culture that had to do with fashion. I wanted my sixteen-year-old niece Molly, who the book is dedicated to, to understand where these great inspirations come from. When you look at Marc Jacobs collaborating with Murakami or Richard Prince, this goes back to YSL's Mondrian dress.


Is there any one dress that stands out as a favorite? 

No, I love all 100 almost equally.
