Sofia Coppola's fashion credentials include a Japanese line called Milk Fed, campaign appearances for Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton (she even designed a shoe and bag collection for the latter last year) and a quintessentially French television commercial for Dior's Miss Dior Cherie fragrance line.

As a style icon in her own right she's almost as entrenched in the fashion world as she is in film and if recent murmurings are to be believed, Coppola will reprise her role as director for the latest round of Dior fragrance ads. The rumours came last week after newly announced Dior Parfums ambassador Natalie Portman was spotted filming in Paris with Robert Schwartzman, Sofia's cousin and brother to Jason Schwartzman who, as you might recall, starred with Portman in the Darjeeling Limited prequel Hotel Chevalier. Brothers joke?

Sofia meanwhile, was shooting on location in Paris the same week. Coincidence? I think not. Below are some images of Portman and Coppola in Paris as well as the latter's whimsical Miss Dior commercial from a year and a half ago...
