Sofia Coppola married
In Bernalda, Italy, where her grandparents lived and where her father, Francis Ford Coppola, owns an estate. She and her husband Thomas Mars of Phoenix have two children. Sofia wore light purple Azzedine Alaia who hates Anna Wintour and Karl Lagerfeld. Hilariously.
Am a little surprised that Sofia went to Alaia instead of Marc Jacobs. It’s not a big deal. I don’t think it means anything. It’s just... Sofia has long been one of Marc’s girls. If you were to have asked someone to assume would be the designer of her wedding dress, most people would have answered Marc. Anyway, no matter. It was Alaia and it was exquisite. Another example of her impeccable taste. The opposite of tacky.
A few of you have emailed to request coverage of Sofia’s wedding on the blog today because you’re big fans, and any additional details I may have. Of anything? Because I don’t have additional details about the wedding other than it was 80 people, super casual, super elegant etc. I do however have an observation of her father from Comic-Con which may rank as one of the best things I’ve ever seen of all time. It may not however be all that appropriate. Sorry in advance?
It was a press line. Standard issue. Celebrity walks down the line, stopping at each outlet. Guillermo del Toro did this with a broken foot. Francis Ford Coppola did this with his own chair. He had someone move a chair over two feet at a time with every outlet. So that he could sit down while doing his interviews. I just need you to imagine how awesomely funny this would have been to watch.
