In case you’ve been wondering what Sofia Coppola has been up to since she decamped to Paris, here’s one of her minor projects – a sweet and catchy commercial released in France last month for Miss Dior Chérie perfume.

The ad stars 21-year-old Maryna Linchuk and features Brigitte Bardot singing “Moi Je Joue”, the kind of novelty song that still gets on the charts in Europe but somehow never seems to make it stateside where whimsy is just not a quality in great demand.

Speaking of whimsy, Tom Adler sent me the Tim Walker picture below after seeing my post on Narelle Autio. And while I'm sure Narelle was completely unaware of the image (and her picture is of a found rather than created still-life) it's an interesting echo. As is the very Walkeresque image all the way below from the Miss Dior Cherie website. Could Walker be the #1 visual influencer of our time?
