Ladies and gentlemen, let's talk about fashion !

8 Times Marie Antoinette Has Inspired the Runway

1. Chanel Cruise 2013

'Not only did Chanel’s Cruise 2013 presentation take place at Marie Antoinette’s former home of Versailles, but Karl Lagerfeld also put a cheeky twist on fashion’s famous doyenne and her beauty looks by giving his models their own “beauty marks” (which were actually tiny intersecting double-C logos) and decking them out in a variety of pastel wigs. Additionally, his couture creations paid homage to her penchant for extravagance with beautifully embroidered gowns that were amplified with hip padding.

2.Dior Fall/Winter 2014 Couture

'Marie Antoinette’s sway over the fashion world is still so strong that, even in the year 2014, designers like Raf Simons were exploring the silhouette potential of hoop skirts and panniers at Dior. The exaggerated shape of his slim-fitting bodice, enormous skirts, and pastoral embroidery formed a striking and memorable collection for the fall season.'

3.Balenciaga Spring/Summer 2006

'Nicolas Ghesquière had a particular knack for effortlessly fusing the past and the present and, for Spring/Summer 2006 at Balenciaga, he wove a strange and alluring tale inspired by both Marie Antoinette and Billy Idol for a riotous and provocative collection. There was a sense of Idol’s dandyism at work in the full-skirted, full-lace looks that proved the 1780s and the 1980s (both obsessed with their own view of extravagance) were a perfect match.'

4. Oscar de la Renta Spring/Summer 2013

'Lest we forget, Marie Antoinette was a teenage queen, married off to Louis XVI at the unbelievably young age of 14. Perhaps her youth accounted for her decadent, irresponsible love of opulence and finery, but regardless, we’re almost certain it contributed to her sense of whimsy when it came to fashion. For Spring/Summer 2013, Oscar de la Renta celebrated her joyful embrace of vibrant pastels, lavish crystal embroidery, and towering wigs with a modern spin on Rococo styles.'

5. Simone Rocha Fall/Winter 2014

'Simone Rocha explored the maudlin side of royal fashion with a Fall/Winter 2014 collection filled with empire-waist dresses and voluminous skirts done in a slick, noir palette.'

6. Hervé Léger Spring/Summer 2011

'Hervé Léger placed a modern, ultra-sensual spin on the Marie Antoinette reference by reinventing 18th century corsetry with fitted, moulded silhouettes in fabrics such as velvet, rubber, and perforated leather. He then amplified the silhouette through the hips with tiered ruffles.'

7. Ruffian Spring/Summer 2013

'For Spring/Summer 2013, Ruffian transformed Marie Antoinette into a hipster heroine. She still had the pompadour, but traded her hoop skirts for printed walking shorts, and her lavish houpelande layers for chic, shrunken blazers.'

8. Rihanna 2015 Fenty x Puma

'When Rihanna shot her campaign for Dior in 2015 at the Palace of Versailles, the iconic location’s gilded interiors and former inhabitants – in particular, Marie Antoinette – inspired her to create her ‘Fenty x Puma’ capsule collection with baroque fabrics. References to 18th century fashion also appeared in the form of corseted waistlines, doily-lace trims, and brocade embroidery.'


On matters of style, swim with the current, on matters of principle, stand like a rock.
