Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette

27 Feb

Sofia Copella’s version was almost a stark opposite of the 1938 version. Featuring bright, strong colors and mouth-watering images, it had very little dialogue and instead relied on the costumes and the emotions of the actors to tell the story of the young queen. (As from my previous post you’ll note that the 1938 version was more dialogue heavy and in black and white).

Here’s Kirsten Dunst as Marie Antoinette:

I don’t Know how many times I’ve seen this movie (likely too many to count) but each time I do, I fall more and more in love with not only the costumes but the characters themselves.

Below are images from the Vogue shoot for the film again featuring Kirsten:
