I know many of you are huge fans of Sofia Coppola, and for the first time I was really excited to see her on the red carpet.

The actress/designer/director attended the Miss Golden Globes Party hosted by InStyle and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association at Cecconi’s Restaurant in LA last night not wearing her favourite colour – black.

She looked effortlessly beautiful wearing a Valentino Spring 2011 dress.

This is how you elegantly wear a Spring 2011 look in winter. No tights and definitely no thick black tops.

Her lighter than air ivory long-sleeved Valentino dress with a ruffled skirt was paired with the runway tan heels.
