Sofia Coppola goes goth for Louis Vuitton ad campaign

Sofia-Coppola-Louis-Vuitton-SS14

Here’s Sofia Coppola modelling for Marc Jacobs’ last ever Louis Vuitton campaign. The SS14 images have just broken and were shot by Steven Meisel and styled by Karl Templer with Guido Palau and Pat McGrath on hair and make-up duty.

Marc Jacobs rallied a few of his favourite muses to model for the campaign, chiming with the prevailing trend of the last few seasons for an all-ages approach to fashion (Edie Campbell, Catherine Deneuve and Fan Bingbing also feature).

Sofia Coppola rarely lends her face to ad campaigns and I so admire her for this. Instead she works with designers who she is genuinely friends with, hence those Marc Jacobs fragrance campaigns we all love, and this slightly goth-y Vuitton one.

“I talked to my friend’s 17-year-old daughter about the slang that teenagers use, and this lovely young lady explained that all her friends call one another ‘bitches, sluts and whores’.”
Sofia Coppola, Red Magazine, on researching teen language for The Bling Ring

A successful film director who’s intelligent, glamorous and female? Let’s face it, it doesn’t happen often. So the glossies must have been gagging to get Sofia Coppola for their covers. The July issue of Red features a cover plus six pages of Coppola (sporting Miu Miu, Valentino and Chanel), in which she shares her own astute observations of celebrity culture and modern-day youth culture.

On researching LA teenagers for The Bling Ring, she said, “I talked to my friend’s 17-year-old daughter about the slang that teenagers use, and this lovely young lady explained that all her friends call one another ‘bitches, sluts and whores’. I also went to clubs in LA with all the girls dressed up in miniskirts and sky-high shoes. That was pretty exotic. Everyone was texting, taking pictures, and I tried to put as much of that in the film as possible. It was almost sci-fi, this idea that living does not count unless you are documenting it. All those things interest me and say so much about our culture, and what is emphasised as important.”

The July issue of Red is out on 5th June.

Walkable heels: Louboutin’s Mistica

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

I wrote about walkable Loubutins last year for Lyst but had never been able to pin down Sofia Coppola’s exact model. (The press office deduced that these were an old style – typical.)  Instead, I’ve discovered the next best thing, the Mistica, which has a sensible 60mm heel and low cut toe box. Obviously, the flash of red on the sole is what gives these their va va voom. Without, it would leave a rather plain court shoe but I guess that’s the power of the Louboutin signature for you! Mistica is a great shoe for daytime power meetings if you want a bit of elevation but don’t have a Wintour-style town car at your disposal. I’d wear them with my Club Monaco 7/8th trousers and a 3.1 Phillip Lim blouse.

Alas, I can’t find these online in the UK (Louboutin’s ecomerce operation is in the planning stages) but you can buy from the US Louboutin site or from Harrods (£375).
