A muse to designer Marc Jacobs and a front-row fixture at shows in New York and Paris, director Sofia Coppola has long had a personal style all her own.

With understated glam and indie cool as her fashion hallmarks, the 39-year-old mother to daughters Romy, 4, and Cosima, 6 months, favors ballet flats or kitten heels and unfussy designs by Jacobs, Chloé, Chanel, Balmain, Givenchy, Alaïa, Dior and Anna Sui.

While Coppola's name is currently making headlines due to her much buzzed-about fourth full-length film, "Somewhere," we take fans on a stroll through the influential director's style past.

Speaking of "Somewhere," don't miss Coppola's take on the film's (and her own) style sensibility.
