I watched Sofia Coppola’s visual masterpiece ‘Marie Antionette’ on Friday night (complete with delicious tiramisu) and found myself being pulled into that world of decadence and frivolity.
The beautiful gowns complete with corsets, lace, hoop skirts and floral detailing made me swoon and I had serious sugar cravings all the way through due to the gorgeous pastel coloured sweet treats that distracted me in many of the scenes.
I had this wonderful notion that perhaps I could organise a group of friends together for a Marie Antionette themed picnic by the lake to dress up in amazing full dresses and eat tiny cakes and biscuits while sipping on tea or champagne and playing cards.
A little extravagant and outrageous I know, but wouldn’t it be fun? I am an actress at heart and love to dress up and be someone different for a few hours and certain parts of the Queen of France’s life would be quite fun to reinact.
Are there any movies that inspire you to the point of creating a party or event in the style of the film?
