French Friday: Rock Royalty

October 19, 2006 by SheFindsRobin

Sofia Coppola’s new film Marie Antoinette is a tribute to the style queen best known for saying “Let them eat cake.” (So what if they now contribute the famous quote to some other royal dead person.) Coppola sets the scene to an 80’s soundtrack which is quite apropos given the current 80’s revival in fashion and music. Also, the conspicuous consumption of the 80’s runs parallel to the oppressive opulence of the French Revolution period.

Designers are reinterpreting this trend in tulle, organza, taffeta and lavish lace. Manolo Blahnik created a line of shoes inspired by the era and costumed the feet of the actors in the film. Find on sale Manolo Blahnik’s at Amazon.
