*Marie Antoinette

The 2006 Marie Antoinette is quite an old movie, but the stylish composition is too beautiful to overlook. A biographical film, written and directed by our dearest genius, Sofia Coppola. It is loosely based on the life of the titular French queen in the years leading up to the French Revolution; taking the sympathetic view of her life as was presented in her biography.


The Casts
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.

Filming Cites
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!
