Sofia wore Marc Jacobs to pick up her Oscar in 2004

Sofia often wears LV and MJ on the red carpet and wore one of his designs to pick up her Oscar for best original screenpay for Lost in Translation in 2004.

Sofia designed the SC bag for Louis Vuitton

Sofia visited the Louis Vuitton workshop in 2008 to place an order but ended up designing her ultimate bag - the SC. The classic leather tote is still on the top of our bag wishlists and in September 2013 they created a limited edition number with pink detailing for the Bon Marché Rive Gauche.

Sofia presented Marc with his lifetime achievement award

Sofia presented Marc with the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award at the CFDA Fashion Awards. 

Sofia was the first to wear the Marc Jacobs beauty line to the Met Ball

Marc revealed to WWD that he tested his first collection on Sofia, who wore the collection to the Met Ball. He revealed: 'I escorted Sofia Coppola to the Met Ball and Diane Kendal [who consulted on the line] did her makeup using all Marc Jacobs Beauty.'

Marc took Sofia as his date to the Met Ball three times

They went to the Met Ball together in 2004, back in the days when Marc had long hair and glasses. In 2013 these fashion pals hit the Met steps for the third time in matching Marc Jacobs PJs.

For Marc Jacobs' next fragrance campaign for Daisy, he has joined forces with his BFF Sofia Coppola. It's hardly a surprising choice as Sofia is Marc Jacobs' muse and starred in the first ever Marc Jacobs fragrance campaign (the one where she was starkers in a swimming pool). WWD report that Sofia will direct the upcoming Daisy campaign, although they have no further details.

Sofia and Marc have one of fashion's strongest friendships, as they were a twosome way before Marc got his hair cut and got inked. Sofia said of their relationship: 'I first met Marc when I was 20. My mum and I were going on a trip to New York and I asked if I could go and see this guy's clothes, Marc Jacobs, at Perry Ellis. I had seen some pictures and I felt for the first time like someone was making clothes for me. Marc came out of his studio and we have been friends ever since.'

Sofia wore Marc to pick up her Oscar, is a regular fixture on his front row, starred in his 2002 Juergen Teller fragrance campaign and was the first to try out his beauty line. Marc Jacobs said of Sofia: 'She is young and sweet and beautiful. The epitome of this girl I fantasize of.' Like all designer muses, Sofia also has a handbag named after her. They also designed a range of delicious totes for Louis Vuitton together.
