a few years ago, i traveled to jakarta, indonesia to watch phoenix. and i was supposed to write a piece on the concert and about stalking sofia coppola. as you know, ms coppola is with thomas mars, the lead singer of phoenix. they have two kids now and live in paris.
i thought seeing phoenix in concert would be an amazing chance to stalk sofia. but fortunately for her, i didn’t get the chance. ehehehe!
sofia coppola is one of my biggest girl crushes. i think she is unconventionally beautiful and she is ridiculously stylish and has an impeccable taste and a keen eye.
here are a few of the pages she guest edited for french vogue a few years ago
other than being a muse and style icon, sofia coppola is also an award-winning writer and director for movies such as the virgin suicides, lost in translation, marie antoinette and most recently – somewhere. she is truly her father’s daughter.
but the thing that i find most fascinating about ms coppola is her decision to make quiet films – a testament to her down-to-earth beauty and lifestyle and a counterpoint to the privilege she grew up with.
and a few months ago, i found the most amazing recording of a then 5-year-old sofia being asked by her father, the great francis ford coppola, to talk to a future sofia. she was also asked to sing a song she learned during her stay in the philippines(yes, remember apocalypse now?).
so adorbs! <3
