Fashion Icon Halloween Costumes: Marie Antoinette

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

So this is my second post for my Fashion Icon Halloween Costume Ideas.. a couple of people mentioned Maria Antoinette as a fashion icon and I most definitely agree. The look is achievable with an extra poufy dress, white pompadour and lacy fan. I thought the stuffed pug would be a cute addition.. One could even carry around a box of chocolates/slice of cake and repeat "Let them eat cake," for extra effect! (I read in a novel about her life that she didn't actually say that though?). Ever since the movie and my visit to Versailles over the summer I've been intrigued by Marie Antoinette. I think she'd make the perfect halloween ensemble as well!

As an advocate for a Marie Antoinette inspired post, I LOVEEEEEEEE the dress you chose, it was actually my first choice as my dress for prom (they didn't have my size in the colour I wanted, so I ended up with a DVF dress instead). Great post.

I saw the strangest "sexy marie antoinette" costume that was very obviously made cheaply to be bought thoughtlessly by girls who'd seen the hot pink on the posters of the movie. Yours is much more creative and awesome. Making costumes from elements you can re-use is the best.

It was very pleased to find this site. This is an intelligent and well written article, you must have put a fair amount of research into writing this.
