As we eagerly anticipate the arrival of the style-centric "Chloe Book," general cool person and sometimes actress Chloë Sevigny continues to look chic as hell in front of cameras. In New York on Tuesday, she braved the snow to attend the premiere of her new Netflix series "Bloodline" in a Louis Vuitton dress and boots.

Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere sent this exact dress and boot combination down the runway for his spring 2015 collection, so we can't exactly give her credit for styling it in her own unique way — though she did forgo an accompanying statement necklace. But there is something to be said about combining the right look and the right person. There's a lot going on in this dress: flowers and flamingos, soft velvet, a peplum waist, a frontal zipper and droopy elbow-length sleeves. And while another "It" girl might look clownish in such a look, Sevigny wears it like it's no big deal. She may not be a top tier LV muse, but she looks effortlessly at home in the French brand's designs. 

Sevigny's collarbone-length wavy hair is just as soft as the velvet on her dress, and a refreshingly styled look that we aren't used to seeing her wear. It's an easy accompaniment to the whole ensemble, especially balanced against the narrow structured knee-high boots. Stay tuned to see if the look lands a page in her style guide.
