Sofia Coppola In Valentino – Women In Film’s 2013 Crystal + Lucy Awards

Sofia Coppola In Valentino - Women In Film's 2013 Crystal + Lucy Awards

You could’ve knocked me down with a very light feather when I saw Sofia Coppola take to the red carpet at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in California yesterday evening for Women In Film’s 2013 Crystal + Lucy Awards.

That’s because she wasn’t wearing Louis Vuitton. Instead, on this rare occasion, she opted for a Valentino Resort 2013 sheer black dress with a white pointy collar, which she styled with a LV black satin clutch.

You would be forgiven if you thought Sofia was barefoot on the red carpet; actually she is wearing clear pvc Valentino peep-toe slingbacks, which do have a nude base.

Take a look at her footwear in the picture below and tell me what you think.

    This look seems totally her to me, and I love the shoes. Going to look for them online…

  2. Reez June 15, 2013 at 19:46 #

    those shoes are better than black pumps

    The dress loses its cute appeal on her, the top looks all wrong and she really resembles Alexa Chung here. Those shoes are terrible.

    The dress is too girlie for her, I don’t see her with this style. The shoes… I don’t dislike them but I don’t like them either. She’s a great director, but I’ve never been a big fan of her style.

    Great and classy on the model, so bad on Sofia!

    I like the idea of “erased” shoes, it’s very Maison Martin Margiela, but the rest of the look is not for her, I agree her torso seems oddly long and the dress is nothing special to begin with

    I love it. I love her style

    To my surprise, I don’t hate the shoes. I don’t love them, but I suppose if you have nice feet, you can get away with this look. My big issue is the distance from the collar to the line across top of the bust. It makes her torso seem oddly long. Also a belt is a must with dress.

      That’s what I thought, she has nice feet! Those shoes, to me, belong to a beach party or something like that.

  9. MaddyEliza June 13, 2013 at 23:13 #

    Like the dress, HATE the shoes. Ew. Whose idea was that?!

  10. amanda June 13, 2013 at 22:26 #

    With so many beautiful shoes at her disposal – why would she want to look like she is not wearing shoes? I think the belt would have been an nice addition.

  11. Heather June 13, 2013 at 20:29 #

    She’s a modern day Cinderella! lol

  12. Agathe June 13, 2013 at 20:05 #

    I like when I’m given homework!
    These shoes could work with a busy dress, but it’s way too plain for me here.
    And shop your size!!! Slingbacks are not supposed to be loose!!!

  13. Jolene June 13, 2013 at 19:56 #

    She looks fantastic, pretty and appropriate for the event. I also like the idea of visually “erasing” the shoes.

  14. Pedro June 13, 2013 at 19:36 #

    Pretty and very chic!

    • Remage June 13, 2013 at 19:42 #

      I agree with Pedro and also very much in line with what Ms Coppola likes to wear. I love this look and specially the shoes.

  15. Yeliz June 13, 2013 at 19:04 #

    I really don’t like those “shoes”. The dress is nice on the model, Sofia should’ve kept the belt.

    • Charlotte June 13, 2013 at 19:23 #

      I agree.

      • Denise June 13, 2013 at 20:23 #

        I agree, too.
        Also the fit of the top half is off.

  16. Nat39 June 13, 2013 at 18:58 #

    Is she chanelling her inner Alexa Chung…too school girl for her, whatever is on her feet isn’t working either, would’ve been nicer with a thin belt and a proper shoe.

        Alexa Chung x Anna Wintour?

    • Kathy June 14, 2013 at 04:06 #

      LOL you’re totally right. Even her hair is 100% Alexa. This dress is not for someone like Sofia.

  17. dee June 13, 2013 at 18:49 #

    The dress and shoes are both awful.

  18. Christine June 13, 2013 at 18:46 #

    This is too twee for her.

    Them shoes are not a good look.
