Halloween Ready Made Outfit: A Modern Marie Antoinette

October 24th, 2006

Sofia Coppola’s flick "Marie Antoinette" is being released at the perfect time to inspire a fabulously rich and over-the-top Halloween costume. The Queen of France was, after all, one of the most stylish royal icons of her time.  In the interest of practicality, we decided to modernize Queen Antoinette’s look just a tad–the gigantic skirt poufed with yards of tulle probably isn’t the look you’re going for.  But if the Halloween look you’re after is sophisticated and of-the-moment, Queen Marie Antoinette is the way to go. 

"A Modern Marie Antoinette" Fashion Formula = Platinum Wig + Pearl Choker + Satin and Lace Corset + Bubble Skirt + White Leggings + Hand Fan.

    I’m laughing because I imagined myself wearing just the wig, necklace, corset and shoes for Halloween. With the fan, of course. Scary. I didn’t get my invite to the Playboy Mansion this year, so I guess I’ll need a dress. LOL :-D

    Glad we made you laugh a bit :) But you’re right, that would only be appropriate at Hef’s mansion!! Are you going to opt for a less risque Marie Antoinette for Halloween this year?
