SoHo was cold and packed with Christmas-crazed tourists Thursday night, but that didn’t keep me from scurrying over to the Apple Store and to Anna Sui’s boutique for two really exciting events celebrating two of fashion’s finest (who also happen to be friends.)
First stop? Apple, to see one of my icons (not just in fashion but in life), Sofia Coppola, speak about her latest film Somewhere, as part of Apple’s Meet The Filmmaker series.
And while Marie Antoinette will forever reign as my favorite of her films (okay, maybe my favorite movie ever?), I have high hopes for Somewhere, which stars one of our favorites, Elle Fanning.
After about an hour of camping out in my chair so that no one else snagged it, Sofia finally walked in wearing a heather gray cashmere sweater scrunched up to her elbows, a pair of fitted blue jeans, and what looked like a pair of Chloe wedges. Her hair was perfectly tousled and the only jewelry she had on was a diamond tennis bracelet and a slim black leather watch.
Sofia spoke about the challenges she faced, the similarities and differences between all of her films, and what inspired her to do Somewhere. “All my previous films had been from a girl’s perspective, so I really wanted to do a film from a man’s point of view.” she said.
