Marie Antoniette Style

Be inspired by the film 'Marie Antoinette' - get your friends together, dress up and throw a lavish afternoon tea party. If you are into history, costume design, fashion and all things French and you haven't seen the film already then hire it on DVD one rainy afternoon. It's a refreshingly modern take on history directed by Sofia Coppola. It's a visual feast of silk, feathers, ruffles, lace, corsets, delicate pastries, extravagant cakes and sumptuous set designs. Here are few stills taken from the movie.



 

 

Following a few images from a fashion shoot inspired by the film 'Marie Antoinette' think iced cupcakes, meringues, macaroons, fresh strawberries, layered cakes and of course French champagne!
