If there’s anyone that’s lived a charmed life, Sofia Coppola is one of them. As the daughter of filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola she’s had access to things most of us can only dream of. Case in point? An internship at Chanel. Here’s what she told British Vogue about her experience:

I was 15 or 16 and a friend of my parents worked there and they take a few girls every summer to do an internship,” said Coppola. “It was so exciting to go to Paris in the Eighties at the height of Chanel. I was in the design studio, so I got to see Karl Lagerfeld doing haute couture sketches for the final shows. It was incredible – he is so creative. I was getting coffee and doing intern stuff, but just to be around him was amazing.

How amazing to watch Karl Lagerfeld sketching haute couture! And what a great time to be there!
