Waiting for a friend in Around the World today, flipping through Another Magazine, I opened to the first shot up top and caught my breath. I love it so much--the scruffy hair, the bare legs, the messy, slept-in blankets. The fact that she's wearing Chloé doesn't hurt either. While looking for a scan, I came across the last two photos, both equally arresting but in such different ways.

I feel like Sofia has one of those faces, sort of like Cate Blanchett, that I remember being described somewhere as "not always pretty but always fascinating" (my poor paraphrasing...) Anyways, I think she's great.

Jolie laide! French for "pretty ugly" that actually refers to women who are striking rather than beautiful, odd-looking and oddly/surprisingly attractive, and more or less dark. The word "changeling" comes to mind...

Other oft-cited examples:
Charlotte Gainsbourg
Juliette Lewis
Jeanne Moreau
Anjelica Huston

Love the pictures!

I was looking at these photos thinking 'What is it about her?' and I think you have it exactly right, she might not be pretty-pretty but she is so fascinating I always want to know more/see more about her.

both have beautiful but different noses and high cheekbones.

she is just grand, one of my favorites. there's nothing too interesting about a typically pretty girl...

These photos are all great... I love the unique beauty that Cate Blanchett and Sofia Coppola have and it always surprises me to hear that they are not considered "conventionally" beautiful!
