The talented miss Kirsten Dunst is granted the cast of the lead role, Princess-then-Queen Antoinette. Her lover, Count Versen, played by Jamie Dornan; whose look was influenced by 1980's rock star Adam Ant.
Amazingly, the production was given unprecedented access to the Palace of Versailles (including the Queen's Petit Trianon and the Hameau de la reine, also the Paris Opera).
Movie Stills - Fabulous Costumes
Think pink! Inspired by the girly decadence of tragic fashion queen Marie Antoinette, and the prevalence of girly-pink and sugary sweet beauty; Milena Canonero and six assistant designers created the gowns, hats, suit and prop costume pieves. Ten rental houses were also employed, and the wardrobe unit had seven transport drivers! Shoes were made by Manolo Blahnik!!! Hundreds of wigs and hair pieces were supplied by Rochetti & Rochetti. The movie eventually won an Academy Award for Best Costume Design. Hard work pays off!
