Sofia Coppola Et Sa Petite Robe Noire

Marie Claire France chose Sofia Coppola as one of seven icons of elegance for the January 2012 issue and I have translated their thoughts from French to English. They focus on her knack for the perfect little black dress, so chic, so Sofia...

Avoir du style en 2012: Les nouveaux codes de l'élégance

Comme le disait Coco Chanel: ‹‹La mode se démode, le style, jamais.›› A condition de le réactualiser. Démonstration avec sept icônes, leur pièce phare et notre interprétation du moment.

Sofia Coppola et sa petite robe noire

On aime son style... chic et sobre. Habituée des tapis rouge, elle a réussi à imposer un style simple avec une touche de fantaisie.

Mode d'emploi Une bonne coupe trois trous, un beau tissu, pile au genoux ou juste au-dessous. Côté couleur, on mise sur le noir ou le bleu foncé, plus subtil. Et on applique la règle des ‹‹sans›› : sans manches, sans veste et, surtout, sans collant noir, ça nous fait prendre vingt ans d'un coup. Nude, sinon rien.

Cette année, on la porte... bimatière, en jouant le contraste : dentelle, tulle, maille... ou carrément plumetis géants, comme dans la collection de Stella McCartney. Côté accessoires : sandales à talon, maximanchettes, jolie pochette façon python. Col Claudine et ceinture en option.

Have style in 2012: The new codes of elegance

In the words of Coco Chanel: "The fashion goes out of fashion, the style, never." A condition to be brought up to date. Demonstrated by seven icons, their signature pieces, and our interpretation of the moment.

Sofia Coppola and her little black dress

We like her style.... chic and sober. A regular on the red carpet, she succeeds in directing a simple style with a touch of fantasy.

Instructions A well cut three-holed, a beautiful fabric, right to the knee or just below. Next, color, the focus is on black or navy blue, more subtle. And we apply the rule "sans": without sleeves, without jacket and, above all, without black tights, it makes us twenty years old instantly. Nude, or nothing.

This year, one wears... bimaterial, playing the contrast: lace, tulle, mesh... or simply giant polka dots, such as the Stella McCartney collection. As for accessories: sandals with heels, maximanchettes, a pretty python bag. Peter Pan collar and belt optional.
