Style Inspiration – Sofia Coppola

I had a girls’ day out with a friend yesterday and we were talking about style. She asked me about my style icon. Well, it was hard for me to answer the question because I’ve never had one. The person who has influenced me the most is my mom, in a way that she always knows what she wants and never really gives a damn about what other people think.

Talking about style in general, I admire the French style. French women are so good at wearing classics but twisted to give a respectful nod to the trend of the day. However they almost never look like fashion victims or slavish follower of fashion magazines. It’s all about the individual, the person, not the clothing itself.

Sofia Coppola is not French but I found her style very French chic. The effortless hair cut, minimal make-up and ballerina flats…Just like one of these beautiful women in left bank who don’t stuff their sexuality down your throat, so refreshing and yet so stylish.

Sensuality is a way of life and fashion.

    记得你还提到过女王陛下和大嘴朱丽。她们都是能有自己特色的女人,不随波逐流,不迎合,只选择适合自己的。
