Remember when Sofia Coppola served as guest editor for the December 2004/January 2005 issue of Vogue Paris? Her knack for creating beautiful films extends to magazines as well and I always love looking back at this issue, especially the brilliant review of the contents by our editor-at-large, Dara Block. One of my favorite parts of this iconic issue is the editorial featured here, "Sofia," as styled by Carine Roitfeld and photographed by Mario Testino. This is one sexy Sofia! I admire her poise in playing whatever role Carine comes up with, in this instance, a sultry siren, and her hair looks fabulous in this starlet style. Carine reflects on their collaboration: “She was a natural. She could replace me tomorrow. She’s got the right eye. She’s energetic, she’s gifted and she’s got taste… Sofia’s of our generation. We share the same references. She’s in the heart of film and fashion and she knows music. And then she was very involved in everything. She really got into it. She got hair extensions and she even posed [semi-] nude."
