Halloween Inspiration: Marie Antoinette
Posted on October 27 2015
One of history’s most infamous queens, Marie Antoinette reigns as a symbol of the opulence of the ruling class leading up to the French Revolution. Politics aside, though, she’s an excellent choice if you want a costume that involves dressing up with historical flair! We love the idea of a ‘masquerade ball’ look—accessories like the Le Sublime Eye Mask and Villa Satine Lace Cuffs (from French brand Maison Close, bien sûr) would add playful yet regal touches to an embroidered or embellished dress. Finish the look with stockings and a garter belt (the Juliette style seems appropriately Rococo) and the crucial powdered wig.
