Marie Antoinette

There was never a time in the French Royal Court as well known as when Queen Marie Antoinette reigned supreme. 

In 1770 at the age of 14 she married the 15 year old boy who was later to become King Louis XVI.

In 1789 France was declared a republic and the monarchy was stripped of its power. Both she and her husband were murdered, he first and nine months later she was killed.

While it lasted, it was a time of great extravagance.

If you ever visit Versailles and have an opportunity to see the private apartments of Marie Antoinette, I would highly recommend that you do so.  They are quite amazing and can only be seen by appointment.

I have been looking for this dress since I saw it last year at the Oscars.  Voila here it is.
Maybe not something you would wear to Versailles but it would cause a wow everywhere else.
