We've been obsessed with Sofia Coppola since we were mere teens. We loved her acting debut as Mary Corleone (despite what the critics had to say), clocked every episode of her Travel tv show with BFF Zoe Cassavetes, bought Milkfed tees by the crate, toasted with her pink bubbly by the can, cued up in line opening day for The Virgin Suicides, Lost in Translation, Marie Antoinette and Somewhere.
Somewhere, on our walls, we have a picture of a very young Sofia wearing only trousers, naked from the waist up with superlong strands and her infamous nose, that we've always admired. Once, when we were fledgling reporters, we got the opportunity to interview Ms. Coppola and she was a lovely as summer's day. Sounds like we're laying it on a bit thick but she really is as sweet as apple pie.
And even though we credit her sartorial influences as culled straight from A, her Napa upbringing clearly can be seen in her inimitable wardrobe (oh, what we wouldn't give to get her hands to the gifts 2nd BFF, Marc Jacob must bestow upon Mrs. Mars.) Her clean, classic and chic style can be seen time and time again.
But, she's not without her daring moments, though they remain true to her aesthetic vision. She stood out as a breath of fresh air at the Oscars, when all other attendees were donned in mermaid dressed and feathered gowns, Sofia simply wore a black knee-length cocktail dress, courtesy of french icon Azzedine Alaia.
So, for our latest get the look, we've posted pieces that remind us of the fashionable film maker. Think timeless chic pieces, feminine flirty dresses that aren't cutesy or overly showy, tailored button downs and vintage frocks that would befit Lux Lisbon, who if we had to put money on it, probably picked her way through Sofia's closet, despite having several other sisters. After all, didn't Kristin Dunst borrow a dress from Sofia to wear to her prom?
