It was in a Chanel dress that Sofia Coppola’s daughter caused a sensation on the Croisette alongside her illustrious grandfather, Francis Ford Coppola, director of the film in competition Megalopolis.

Long wavy blonde hair, aquiline nose, black dress with airy petticoat and tight bustier, Chanel pumps. For a moment, on the red carpet of the Cannes Film Festival this May 16, we note the presence of a young woman on the arm of Francis Ford Coppola. The 85-year-old director, who comes to attend the screening of his own film Megalopolis in official competition, with his sister Talia Shire, is also accompanied by his granddaughter Romy Mars, the daughter of Sofia Coppola and the French leader of the group Phoenix, Thomas Mars. The spitting image of her parents, the teenager signs her first climb of the steps in this 77th ceremony. Not without being noticed by a certain elegance in discretion.

All in Chanel

On the steps of the Palace, the observation is clear: the very rare apparition attracts the lenses of photographers who immortalize this moving family moment. To mark the occasion, Romy Mars, only 17 years old, set her sights on a 100% Chanel outfit: from the strapless dress to the earrings, including the shoes and the quilted black handbag with a gold chain. A look reminiscent of the silhouettes of her mother who, in the 1980s and 1990s, often opted for minimalist and flowing dresses. The little black dress, or a promise of elegance passed down from mother to daughter.

Obviously, no other house than Chanel could dress Romy Mars for her first steps on the red carpet of the Croisette. Because there are rare times when, during her public appearances, Sofia Coppola is not dressed in a creation from the house with the two “Cs”. The director of Virgin Suicides (1999) was also entirely dressed by Chanel at the last Met Gala which was held in New York on May 6.
