Sofia Coppola is my style icon. I love every, single thing she's ever worn on the red carpet, mostly because she dresses for herself and no one else. One secret dream of mine--other than owning a Sofia Coppola x Louis Vuitton bag--is that she create another clothing collection. A sequel to her 1990s line MilkFed, perhaps? A spin on her piece for Lutz & Patmos? Last night I stood on the red carpet at the Lanvin x H&M runway show to ask her just that. And she answered me, wearing a dotty button down, fur coat, cropped trousers and simple ankle-strap heels. Swoon. (Also, if you could please forgive the pathetic quality of the video--it was a spontaneous moment!--I'd be much obliged. Figured you'd like to see it no matter how goofy it looks.)
Sofia Coppola Weds in Lavender Azzedine Alaïa!
Filmmaker and style icon Sofia Coppola married longtime rocker boyfriend Thomas Mars Saturday in the remote southern Italian village of Bernalda. The rumors about her dress were true--Sofia wore a custom made lavender gown by Azzedine Alaïa and here is the first photograph to emerge, via People. Her father, Francis Ford Coppola, walked her down the aisle in the garden of his villa, Palazzo Margherita. The civil ceremony was officiated by Bernalda's mayor Leonardo Chiruzzi, who told the Associated Press, "If they wanted to do a Hollywood wedding, they wouldn't have done it here...(They) chose to do it here because it's here--it's here that is beautiful."
