This past Saturday, Chloë Sevigny transformed St. Mark’s Church in-the-Bowery into a 1960s protest party filled with stylish smut and infectious beats. Inspired by the silhouettes of the time, the indie actress/fashion darling’s fifth collection for Opening Ceremony features retro numbers like A-line coats and babydoll dresses, which were modeled by five picketing all-girl bands that included some famous faces.

Attendees like Vanessa Hudgens, Kate Lanphear, and Garance Dore looked on as rebel rockers like Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon and Thinner’s Lissy Trullie (a friend of Sevigny’s and the original face of her OC collab) posed in pieces from cult skate label Vision Street Wear and Emilio Cavallani. Standout designs included a furry round purse, chunky white clogs with red soles, baby pink gingham tops, intarsia tights with Egyptian motifs, funky berets in an array of shades, and a mock turtleneck/vinyl skirt pairing modeled by Sevigny herself.
