Can you believe it’s been 10 years? While that’s not usually long enough for us to dwell on a Throwback Thursday, Sophia Coppola’s Marie-Antoinette (2006) has a special place in Frock Flicks’ own history. The film premiered in the U.S. on October 2006, and about a year later, we chose the movie for our very first Frock Flicks podcast.
On this auspicious anniversary, we encourage you to listen to that podcast — it’s kind of rough, but we clearly set out the goals and tone that would last through future podcasts and this blog. You can also check out Kendra’s textual ramblings about her Very Favorite Movie Ever.
And let’s all enjoy some scrumptious eye candy from this most delightful of films! Click on the images for full-size.
What’s your favorite costume or scene from 2006’s Marie-Antoinette?
Marie Antoinette is one of my favourite frock flicks. The other is Wings of the Dove. Milena Canonero is a Costume Ghod, along with Sandy Powell.
What I enthuse over in this frock flick is Marie’s growth Fashion-wise from a young girl to the supreme Fashionista that she was. Also how the film played with eating cake. The dresses Kirsten Dunst wore as Marie Antoinette were the best eye candy ever. Made me want to go out and eat ice cream.
Milena Canonero is in a class of her own. I found the costumes of Wings Of The Dove to be deadly dull and forgettable.
The fortuny gowns in wings of the dove!
I honestly don’t know who’s going to make great modern Fortuny gowns now Charles and Patricia Lester have stopped doing them!
I really love her mourning gowns for some reason.
Gurl, this movie is EVERYTHING!
And the Vogue Sept Issue that was alllll up on this…..BEST. ISSUE. EVER.
*listens to the Ceremony album on a seamless loop*
I tore all those pages out of that issue of Vogue (back when I still bought the Sept & Mar issues of Vogue every year) when I culled it and am pretty sure I still have them all. So gorgeous!
