Description   [from Freebase]

Tara Lyn Subkoff (born December 10, 1972) is an American actress and fashion designer from Westport, Connecticut. She has acted in over a dozen movies, most recently 2006's The Notorious Bettie Page. Subkoff was born in Westport, Connecticut and attended Otis Parsons school for less than a year before dropping out. She appeared in Blondie's 2003 music video for "Good Boys." Subkoff and Matthew Damhave were co-founders of the clothing line Imitation Of Christ, which remade old clothes into new works of fashion. They named their fashion line after the 15th century book of the same name by Thomas à Kempis. Chloë Sevigny was creative director of the line and Scarlett Johansson walked the runway in Subkoff's designs, and she recently collaborated with shoe company Easy Spirit. While the clothing was worn together with the shoes, the shoe collections were not branded as part of the Imitation of Christ clothing line. In reference to the collection's Spring 2003 show, Laird Borelli writing for Vogue magazine's Style.com observed, "Like all IOC events, the spring show, billed as a 'retrospective,' was more about performance art and cultural theory than clothes.
