On the day before we were let out for break, my AP Art History teacher showed us the movie Marie Antoinette as an introduction to the lavish Rococo period. He also baked us pink strawberry cupcakes! I simply adore him.
It was said that costume designer, Milena Canonero, used the colors of macarons* as a palette. Working for this movie must've been a real treat for her!
This is my ultimate favorite scene of Marie Antoinette. Just look at all the color; shoes, fabric, jewels, and sweets galore!
*Macarons have become a real obsession of mine as of today. I tried them at this little French boulangerie on Park Ave. in Winter Park called Le Macaron. I tasted Belgian Dark Chocolate, Madagascaran Black Vanilla, and Gingerbread; all equally as delectable.
Well I hope I've left you thinking about everything français. Tout à l'heure, mon amis!
