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."
Sofia Coppola Wants to be Paris Hilton's New BFF
Sofia Coppola is a rare and dying breed: Not only is she a terrific director, fabulous dresser, and general all-around cool person--she's also one of the last remaining Paris Hilton fans. It's true! The multi-talented Coppola, who cast Hilton as herself in this summer's teen heist flick The Bling Ring, photographed the 32-year-old at home for Elle and spoke of her adoration for the celebutante.
H&M Tapped Sofia Coppola To Direct the Marni for H&M Commercial and Print Campaign
I'm not sure if I've ever been this excited for an ad campaign for a collection before. Perhaps because it's pretty unusual to promote an ad campaign before it's even been released, but when Sofia Coppola is involved and it's for a highly-anticipated H&M designer collaboration, we want all the details we can get. So, WWD announced today that H&M's upcoming collaboration with Marni will be promoted with a print ad as well as an advertising film that will run in cinemas, television and online--all of which were directed by Ms. Coppola. She shot the ad in gorgeous Marrakech, Morocco in October.
