Marie Antoinette queen of style and taste

€12.90

by Françoise Ravelle

In Marie-Antoinette's kingdom, the ministers were couturiers, cabinetmakers, bronze workers and painters. Personally contributing to the tailoring of her outfits, the decoration of her apartments or the landscaping of her gardens, ths French queen lived according to the tastes of the day when she wasn't launching new fashions herself - if only by transgressing the conventions attached to her rank. To the refinement of French style at its best, she added her own personal touch, with flourishes of flowers and pearls. Occasionally disguising as an actress or a farmer's wife, the rebel sovereign set out to capture the mood of her time... a time when she was hardly recognized for who she was.
