Oeuvre in Pink


(images via various tumblers over the years, which i forgot the name of. apologies)

Not only does Sofia Coppola exude style, her work as a director is at least as inspirational. Her films such as Lost in Translation and Marie Antoinette tell of the essence and loneliness of being a female in a world that, as one critic put it “knows how to use you, but doesn’t know what to do with you.” There is a quiet, naturalistic melancholy that surrounds it, even in her elaborate costumedrama based on the teenage French queen.

Every once in a while I’ll spend my evening with her movies and a big cup of camommile tea. They also make for perfect movies for sleepovers, with additional wine and macarons highly recommended.
