Sophia Coppola is to beautiful films what Anna Wintour is to beautiful fashion. Coppola is the daughter of Francis Ford Coppola, legendary director of The Godfather. His daughter, however, dabbles in a different kind of film making. Anyone who’s seen The Virgin Suicides, Marie Antoinette or Somewhere knows her films are far more emotional, feminine, beautiful and poignant. Many scenes seem like beautiful stills from Vogue photoshoots.
Dakota Fanning’s similarly pretty sister Elle Fanning was the latest beauty to star in one of her films (Somewhere), where Hollywood and the fashion world collide at the Chateau Marmont. It’s no wonder Dakota was seeing toting Sophia’s bag for Louis Vuitton around. Sophia not only helped design this bag, but LV’s entire 2012 resort collection, much of which was inspired by pieces in her own wardrobe. Her effortless, chic style is heralded as iconic by many in the fashion world.
This bag is loved by an endless list of celebs. Miranda Kerr and Chiara Ferragni of The Blonde Salad are often spotted carrying one in red. The asymmetrical tote is instantly recognizable not only as a Louis Vuitton piece but as one that is set to become a valuable collector’s item. Invest in one now, before they disappear from the market and become even more expensive vintage pieces like some Birkins have become!
The Bring it On beauty was recently spotted careening around town with a fabulous new Louis Vuitton Epi Alma handbag on her arm. The bag is named after the stunning Place de l’Alma, a grand square in Paris. Considering that Louis Vuitton is a French design house, how fitting! Featuring textured leather, the Alma bag is trimmed with a smooth leather lining. The inside is fitted with luxurious Alcantara lining, the kind found in some over the top luxe cars.
Kirsten’s outfit itself is such a trendy example of a cute summer ensemble for those who aren’t up for bright colors, loud floral prints or designer handbags with obvious monogrammed prints or large logos. The spotted black and white dress maintains an air of playfulness while abstaining from becoming too girly.
The accessories are what really take the cake though – the cute sunglasses with a gold metallic touch, the 90s throwback sandals and the Louis Vuitton Epi Alma, of course. The actress seems like she’s having a ball of a time this summer, munching on watermelon as she shops with her latest beau not long behind.
