Twenty-five-year-old Bard graduate Gia Coppola, granddaughter of Francis Ford and niece of Sofia, got her start in fashion film when she did a short video for her friend Wendy Mullin, who runs the Built by Wendy label. Opening Ceremony saw the clip and asked her to work with them; Zac Posen, Diane von Furstenberg, and Rodarte followed suit. "It just spiraled," said Coppola, who has a quiet, childlike voice and describes herself as "very shy." She most recently did a video for Elle China, which she shot in Las Vegas, and she's currently preparing to speak at the inaugural Portable Curators Conference, which takes place on September 5 at Lincoln Center. She spoke to us earlier this week from her apartment in L.A. about her career plans, shopping habits, and carbohydrate-loving cat.
