Sevigny rages, "Today the term is used to describe, say, Peaches Geldof - a girl who doesn't do anything but is just sort of around.
"The original It girl was the 1920s movie star Clara Bow; then in the 1960s, with Edie Sedgwick and (Andy) Warhol, It girls turned into socialites, ladies of leisure, people who had it just for being fabulous. But Edie was just a rich drug addict, and when I got called the It girl everyone thought I was that too... I felt I was doing stuff, not just being a socialite."
