Fashion Muses, take 2
“Today’s undisputed king and queen of cool,” Marc Jacobs and the woman he calls, “young and sweet and innocent and beautiful,” otherwise known as Sofia Coppola. A muse-match made in heaven.
Marc Jacobs and his varied style…pretty prom like dresses, layered looks and oversize prints, ‘downtown meets glamour vibe’ seem completely compatible with Sofia’s own laid back approach to glamour. He even describes her as, “the epitome of the girl I fantasize of.’
I was shocked to see them only coming in at 4th position on elleuk.com’s top ten muses, beaten by the designer’s Christopher Kane and Henry Holland, the influential pairing didn’t seem to quite make it in the eyes of Elle magazine.
However, whenever a red carpet is near Sofia is adorned in yet another of Jacob’s masterpieces. When taking home, “Best Screenplay” Oscar for Lost in Translation Sofia displayed a subtle yet elegant dress of a purple silk. Understated and feminine with her flowing curls Sofia seems to hold her Oscar with pride.
I think this is another pairing that yet again show that the muse is very valuable to the designer to showcase the beautiful dresses.
