Marie Antoinette Inspired Style

Inspired Style: Marie Antoinette's French Glamour

We all have a vision of Marie Antoinette: the ill-fated child princess was known for her fabulous, opulent wardrobe as much as she was for her vivacious personality, legendary extravagance, and the famous phrase "let them eat cake." Sure, she had some haters; but what royal figure doesn't? Today marks Marie Antoinette's birthday, and she's not only an infamous historical figure, but also an unforgettable style icon. We're feeling a little inspired by her fashionable opulence: think decadent ruffled lace, exaggerated silhouettes, ribbon, and gorgeous jewels. With a look at Kirsten Dunst's role in Sofia Coppola's stylish flick Marie Antoinette and Alexander McQueen's Fall 2011 collection as a modern starting point, we're getting into the romance of a bygone age.
