i recently watched sofia coppola's marie antoinette and fell in love with the sensuous, opulent, ridiculously luxurious styling of the set and the costumes. did you know they actually got to use the real versailles grounds and structures for that film?! so amazing. after i took in all the satin and silk and lace and damask and cakes and whipped cream and jewels and champagne, all i wanted was more. (how appropriate. i'm a girl after m. antoinette's own heart.) hence this post.
i've also included some of k.y. craft's gauzy, intricate artwork. she illustrated one of my favorite fairytales of all time, the twelve dancing princesses. in her work, i see some of the same spill of riches in which coppola's film is saturated.
