Sophia Coppola's Marie Antoinette - colour inspiration for S/S 2012...

Today in 1793 Marie Antoinette, teen Queen of France was executed by guillotine for treason.  Sophia Coppola's magical film about the young life of the French royal is a fashion / costume lovers dream.  I adore this film and her use of a predominantly pastel colour palette throughout is so spot on with the ice cream shades that were all over the catwalks for S/S 2012.  The amaze soundtrack to the film also includes two of my favourite songs - The Strokes 'What Ever Happened?' and Dustin O'Halloran's 'Opus 23'.  Here is the trailer for any of you who haven't watched the film - go see the DVD...

...Annie Lebovitch shot Miss Dunst and some of the cast in Versailles for the September issue of US Vogue 2006, below are some of her incredible images.
