Sofia hates being called a style icon

London: Director Sofia Coppola hates being termed a "style icon" as she does not consider herself fashionable enough.

The `Somewhere` director, who has also worked as a model, photographer and TV presenter, is surprised when people cite her as a fashion inspiration and never thinks of herself in that way, reported Vogue magazine.

"I don`t think of myself in the way I think of Tina Chow or Diana Vreeland or someone I thought was stylish when I was a kid. I just don`t think about it," said Coppola.

However the 39-year-old director, who has also designed a line of bags for Louis Vuitton with her close friend Marc Jacobs, admitted she does love "beautiful things".

"I like beautiful things. I like photography, well-made clothes. I appreciate creativity. I tend to like things that are more simple and classic. Not super-glitzy, I guess. I wouldn`t describe my aesthetic as bling."

While Coppola`s own style may be revered, she tries not to impose her classic look on her four-year-old daughter Romy.

"I`m just thinking about how my four-year-old is really into pink and purple and sparkles right now and I don`t want to inhibit her by forcing navy-blue clothes on her. I have to not be a snob when it comes to toddlers," she said.
