Sunday’s are movie days unless I have other plans – and even then, I try and squeeze in a movie. Today it was the 2006 film Marie Antoinette and what was missing in the plot was made up for by the costumes, created by the fantastic Milena Canonero. Kristen Dunst and the rest of her court stunned parading around Versailles. Ever since I visited in the French palace in 2003 it has been my dream to live in a place like that, a dream of a little girl, I know but dreams have never hurt anyone. This movie absolutely deserved the 2007 Oscar for the Best Achievement in Costume Design.
Sofia Coppola dis a great job writing and directing this film and I highly recommend it! The costumes were absolutely gorgeous and incredibly ornate – every scene seemed like the characters were going to a ball – a perfect choice when depicting the extravagance of the French aristocracy. Marie Antoinette swiftly became an abominable hallmark of aristocracy in France.
