marie antoinette is alive and well

i’m stopping by for a quick allo as i have guests arriving in about a minute. just wanted to share some of the love the city still has for our girl marie and admire how her legacy lives on. she may be the most influential fashion icon of all time cause she’s still reigning how many years later? and to think there were no photos of her at all. so much for technology…well, bonne nuit from paris!

September 6, 2011. Fashion, Marie Antoinette, Paris.

    218 years later…she was reviled during her life, but revered in death…people are fickle, especially the French. But yes, I do agree–she will always be “THE” fashion icon of the somewhat “modern” (18th century-on) world. BTW–where is this store in Paris? I would like to go by sometime in the near future.

    Have a great time in Paris, Claudia, and thank you for sharing. It would be great to have pictures. I saw an exhibit at the High in Atlanta which included one of the portraits painted of here. Beautiful. And the movie; great!
