Those not familiar with Marie Antoinettes history would do well to watch Sofia Coppola's biopic, which is based on what is generally considered to be the most historically accurate biography of the former Queens life - 'Marie Antoinette: The Journey' by Antonia Fraser. In fact, even those who could recite her history backwards should watch this film. It's immense. The attention to detail is so precise and the composition of every single shot is perfect. It's a film so beautiful that I could happily turn the sound down and just admire it like I would a Monet or Da Vinci. It captures the essence of Marie Antoinettes life at Versailles perfectly, whilst not adhering to the guidelines of your average period drama. Coppola injects kooky details, such as a modern soundtrack featuring The Strokes, Radio Dept and The Cure, and this blink and you'll miss it shot of the Queen putting on her shoes with a pair of baby blue Converse boots by her side.
I put together a Polyvore piece of Antoinette-inspired attire. I'd like to think the late Queen herself would have approved...
In other news, I've applied for an internship at Amelia Magazine in London. I'm keeping my fingers crossed, but I'm aware that I'm most probably hugely under-qualified (I'm guessing 5 years unpaid writing experience and no degree isn't hugely appealing to a prospective employer). Oh well, nothing ventured, nothing gained!
