Girl Crush

She may be the daughter of Francis Ford Coppola, but Sofia Coppola has created a legacy all her own. Starting out in small roles in her fathers films, she never really wanted to act and transitioned into writing and directing at the age of 26.


LOVE this photo with her father by the infamous Annie Leibovitz

By age 33, she was nominated for THREE Academy Awards for Lost in Translation and took home the award for Best Original Screenplay. Overnight she made Scarlett Johansson (errrr…) and the Park Hyatt Tokyo overnight sensations.

While I do love her movies, I am more intrigued by her role in fashion. She has been the face of Marc Jacobs fragrances, directed commercials for Dior, and created her own line of Louis Vuitton handbags. The ads for her bags are brilliant and I wanted to share a glimpse into her fabulousness.

Oh and PS, she is dating the lead singer of Phoenix and makes her home in Paris…not a bad life, oui?

Farewell to an Icon


Her courage, beauty, radiance, honesty and heart will be deeply missed.
