Sofia Coppola, Guest Editor

Sofia Coppola has edited a special edition of W to be sold with the magazine’s May issue. W’s editor in chief, Stefano Tonchi, tells WWD that Coppola was completely hands on– from the cover of Kirsten Dunst, to a “Q&A by Coppola with Marisa Berenson in Marrakech, a story from Cornelia Guest on her mother’s best entertaining tips and an item by Paul Fortune on his design process for Marc Jacobs’ media room”.

I’m a big fan of Sofia Coppola’s films, personal style, and desire to have a private life despite her famous family and career demands. The issue will be on newsstands Monday.

  • This is a great idea on the part of W, though I know guest editing has been done before. What sets Sofia apart is her talent and passion for visual imagery. I’ll go out of my way to get a copy of this issue.

  • Nothing wrong with a little refinement in my book!

  • Refinement, lady-likeness, all seem new and refreshing now. The explicit, overt, in your face, are frankly beginning to feel passé. Been there… saw that.

    Sophia has a marvelous sense of what people will want tomorrow. W would be wise to do more with her!

  • I love the sub-title, ‘What’s wrong with a little refinement?’ No kidding! Vulgar and gauche have always been vulgar and gauche. It just became the mode of the day. How about, ‘What’s wrong with a little restraint?’ We used to call refinement and restraint ‘good manners!’

  • Well to be honest, if you really desired privacy you needn’t stick your face in a magazine or proceed to interview Lee Radziwill about privacy- sounds a bit hypocritical. Just saying

  • Ooh I’ll look out for this.

  • Karlie makes a good point. Gotta love interviews of ‘celebrities’ complaining about privacy. Like Gwyneth complaining that her job is so much harder than most women’s jobs, they unfortunately come off as clueless.
