Louis Vuitton host party for Sophia Coppola’s latest film ‘Somewhere’

On Wednesday, December 8th, 2010

Louis Vuitton-clad guests enjoyed a preview of Coppola’s new film then partied the night away at the Chateau Marmont.

Stylish film director Sophia Coppola gets on famously with Louis Vuitton’s artistic director Marc Jacobs, so it was fitting that the French fashion house threw a party in honour of her new film, ‘Somewhere’, in Los Angeles last night.

After a preview of the movie, guests gathered at the legendary Chateau Marmont hotel – the setting of the film about a washed-up Hollywood actor (played Stephen Dorff) living a debauched existence there when his 11 year-old daughter (Elle Fanning) unexpectedly comes to stay.

Coppola, revered for her chic spin on laidback, androgynous style, sparkled in a simple, sequinned black dress by Vuitton. Models Erin Wasson and Angela Lindvall, who have cameo roles as Hollywood groupies in the film, took the opportunity to premiere looks from Jacobs’ oriental inspired spring/summer 2011 collection for Louis Vuitton.

Up-and-coming actresses including Isabel Lucas, Lea Seydoux and Jessica Chastain all called upon the magic of Louis Vuitton to make an entrance at the party. Quite possibly the only guest not wearing Vuitton was 12 year-old Elle Fanning, the younger sister of fellow actress Dakota, who wore a black puffball dress by Valentino.

Sofia Coppola counts Marc Jacobs as a long-time friend, and the two joined forces in 2009 after Coppola visited Louis Vuitton’s historic workshop in Asnières and was inspired to create a capsule collection of bags and shoes with the French luxury house, which have become modern classics.
