Marie Antoinette was a fascinating queen who was seen as a fashion icon & trendsetter of her time.
She struggled at the rigid court of Versailles & found comfort in fashion, using it in an attempt to try to have a hold on her destiny as well as on the French.
She revamped fashion in Versailles with stunning, glamorous costumes & outfits & extravagant hairstyle. Her avant-garde style & original "pouf" that stands for big hair made her a fashion "pioneer"
Her 2 foot high pouf became one of the queen's trademark & she would structure it with various objects & scenes..
Marie Antoinette's major fashion decisions & enduring influence still inspires designers today, such as Karl Lagerfeld who rocked the palace of Versailles on may 14th with the Chanel 2012/2013 Cruise Collection, setting a timeless & playfulness tone with models in pastel colored fringe bobs, white & blue denim topped off with the Chanel signature jacket.
The collection updated fashion from the 18th century, mixing the frivolity of that time with modernity & classic Chanel pieces, showing 18th silhouettes cut in denim shorts, illustrating what trendsetter Marie Antoinette could have been if she would have lived in our era...
