Decadent living teen queens then and now…

Marie Antoinette was the ultimate cake eater and a true fashion plate. You could say that she paved the way for today’s starlets, who can only imitate her divaness — Paris is never photographed in the same outfit twice, LiLo buddies up with designers like Karl Lagerfield and everyone from the Olsen twins to JLo have started their own fashion lines.

The teen queen of the 18th century inspired a Parisian fashion frenzy — flaunting floaty chemise dresses, white fur and diamonds — while today’s poptarts inspire paparazzi frenzies of another kind. Her life story — filled with royal intrigue, bloody political revolution, unbridled sex and an early death — is the stuff of Hollywood dreams. And certain night-vision videos and celeb fashion lines only tickle the edges of the opulent heights Marie had hit by 20.

So when you take in the historical cinematic version starring Kirsten Dunst and produced by Sofia Coppola this weekend, make sure you do it in modern Parisian style.


Manolo’s were worn in the film but contemporary cake eaters require Christian Louboutin.


The Chloe collection romanticizes this season’s drab color palette. The detailing may be minute compared to Marie but just right for 2006 decadence.


If you want the ultra-femme ruffles and bows, look no further than iconic French fashion house, Christian Dior.

Paris Fashion Week just concluded in a whirlwind of sporty brights and eye-catching couture. Check out the Paris Runway Wrap-Up from the experts at Neiman Marcus.
