MET Costume Institute Gala

As usual, Sofia was yesterday night at the MET! She looked so stunning with this look and obviously in black! I couldn't Id the dress but I'm guessing Marc Jacobs or Louis Vuitton.

About the news of an upcoming movie with Kirsten Dunst, those reports are false :´( From The Playlist:

Well, that was fun while it lasted. As you no doubt heard over the Easter weekend, the blogosphere lit up when a Twitter account supposedly belonging to Francis Ford Coppola‘s production company American Zoetrope tweeted, “Happy to announce that Kirsten Dunst has agreed to be in Sofia Coppola‘s new film ‘Secret Door’. Script is still being finished. Stay tuned!” Sounded too good to be true—and indeed, that was the case.

A few hours later some pretty obvious clues started surfacing much to our disappointment and chagrin. First, the Twitter account posted what purported to be eight pages of the script— some of the worst writing we’ve ever seen (Sample: “It was he, I pondered most of”)— and then the twitter account name changed multiple times over the day from Zoetrope Films to Sofie Coppola to MsSofia Coppola to SCoppolaFans and back to MsSofiaCoppola. Earlier today, the account more or less signed off saying “All joking aside, please follow @AmZoetrope ( for more news. This account will be deleted. Thank you. Nothing more to say. Bye.” Of course, this is a fake account too. We reached out to reps for Kirsten Dunst just to get the final confirmation of what we assumed and we’re not surprised by what we heard.

“I know they’d love to work together again but this project doesn’t even exist. Wishful thinking from someone!” a spokesperson for Dunst said. Why anyone would write a fake Sofia Coppola script is beyond us, but then again, people are writing fake “Batman” scripts so anything is possible we suppose.

So chalk it up to a bit of an excited sugar high from chocolate rabbits and quasi-hoax on the internet. But nothing to see here, please move on.

marie-antoinette trivia (l)

Since there are no new Sofia news, I will continue with the movie trivia:

- This movie was going to be produced before 'Lost in Translation' (2003), but while Sofia was writing the screenplay struggling with historical truth and an imposing gallery of characters, she started creating another story in order to distract herself from the difficult enterprise. This parallel project - a small Japanese story - became 'Lost in Translation', whose planetary success revamped the 'Marie-Antoinette' production.

- Ladurée was chosen by Sofia Coppola to make all of the brightly colored pastries and cakes for the film.

- Sofia had originally wanted Angelina Jolie for the role of Madame Du Barry, but turned it down to star in 'The Good Sheperd', then Catherine Zeta-Jones was considered. The role eventually went to Asia Argento.

- Jason Schwartzman, who plays King Louis XVI, is Sofia's cousin.

- Was ranked #3 on US Weekly's "Top Ten Films of 2006".

- The men playing guitars in the scene with a woman signing for Marie are members of the group Phoenix, the lead singer of which is dating Sofia and is father of her daughters Romy and Cosima.
