Sofia Coppola has long since been a reference of style for me. Her subtle, elegant and effortless ease with how she dresses has always drawn my eye. I’ve been collecting images of her from way back, focusing on her style in one of my first Stylish Girl blogs back in 2009. I have been a fan of hers since her roles in her Dad Francis’s films Peggy Sue Got Married and The Godfather III. When she began to direct her own movies, my favourite being Lost in Translation, I’ve always felt she takes a delicate approach to her direction, which is distinctively Sofia. Some people have a way of allowing their style to infiltrate all that they do and Sofia is one of those people. Everything she turns her hand to is distinctively Sofia. The way she builds a character, to the way the camera pans the scene, to the music choices of the soundtrack, for me, there is always a reflection on her personal style – reflected in the cut of her clothes, the choice of colour or prints she wears, to the leather goods she designs for Louis Vuitton. All Sofia. Don’t you just love her?
So of course, this week’s frock Friday is dedicated to the one and only Sofia Coppola. Enjoy!
love & light,
