Why Sofia Coppola is a Style Icon for the Ages

START

Sofia Coppola has a lot going for her. The indie filmmaker, who is the daughter of Francis Ford Coppola, has emerged as one of the leading directors of her generation with her offbeat, female-focused movies—from The Virgin Suicides in ’99 to Lost in Translation, Marie Antoinette, and The Bling Ring—that share a dreamy introspectiveness and transcendent romantic quality. And at Cannes last year, she became the second woman ever to win best director for her award-winning film The Beguiled starring Kirsten Dunst, Nicole Kidman, and Elle Fanning.

Coppola has naturally become a fashion icon along the way. She interned at Chanel as a teenager, has been close friends with Marc Jacobs for decades, designed a handbag for Louis Vuitton, and is a front row regular at shows including Dior and Sonia Rykiel. [Not to mention the brief-yet-shining moment that was Milk Fed, her clothing label in the nineties, which was full of baby tees and wispy floral dresses.]

Her personal style is never trendy, always understated and chic. She mostly sticks to a simple, monochromatic color palette, joking that the title of her memoir should be Does This Come in Navy? Her typical on-duty uniform is a crisp white men’s Charvet shirt, black slacks or Acne jeans, a delicate gold watch, and sensible ballet flats. Red carpet events mean amping things up with a LBD and heels—I’ve noticed her wearing the same black ankle strap wedges on at least six different occasions. Coppola has never met a striped t-shirt she didn’t like, but also owns a stash of covetable statement furs she’ll toss over her outfit for a fashion show.

On her 49th birthday, CR pays tribute to Coppola’s canon of work and her personal style evolution.
