I’m finally reading my book She-Wolves: The Women Who Ruled England Before Elizabeth and so I am once again hopelessly in love with Eleanor of Aquitaine (because she’s a badass), and so I decided to doodle my two favorite queens!

My other favorite queen is Marie Antoinette, for reasons I can’t quite figure out.

(Red for Eleanor because the English coat of arms at the time was three gold lions on a red field. Blue for Marie Antoinette because the coat of arms of France was three fleur-de-lis on a blue field.)

A STUDY ON COSTUME DESIGN | Marie Antoinette (2006): costumes by Milena Canonero

#3. Wedding Gown: worn during the wedding ceremony.

This heavily decorated dress, worn over an extremely wide pannier and a tight corset, matches the unease dominating the scene in which Marie Antoinette and Louis XVI, looking confused and uncomfortable, get married in front of a crowd of greedy onlookers. The color palette of the mise-en-scène varies between white, crème and gold, emphasizing 
the harsh and cold formality of the grandiose function.
