"Let them eat cake," she said, just like Marie Antoinette.

I have seen a lot of movies lately. That's because my friend got this coupon for the video rental store so you can rent five movies instead of three. When we're watching movies, we always come up with some sort of theme to select them. Like, we watch movies from one actor or actress; we had a Leonardo DiCaprio movie night, and we selected movies from Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. This time, we thought it would be cool to select them on the costumes. I just adore hoopskirts, so there were a lot of movies from that time. But we also rented Memoirs of a Geisha - Japanese kimono's!

Memoirs of a Geisha

Pride and Prejudice

Elizabeth and the golden age

Vanity Fair

But the best costume movie in my opinion is, without a doubt, Marie Antoinette:

OMG! I don't think there exists a girl on this planet who wouldn't fall for these dresses.
Just two words are enough: So. Cute.
All the bows, heels, ruches, ribbons, hoopskirts, hats, masks; all in milkshake colours. And the hairstyles are just as fabulous. Even the food is served stylish! I think Kirsten Dunst suits the role of Marie Antoinette very well, she's a good actress. I also think of Sofia Coppola as a great director. There's one thing very obvious; every fashion admirer should watch this movie. So grab your cake and hurry, 'cause you don't want to miss this piece of art!

Btw, it seems like The Duchess, with Keira Knightley, is also a great costume movie. I can't wait to check it out!
