New Marie Antoinette Film

To know me is to know I'm borderline-obsessed with Marie Antoinette.  So when I heard that a new Marie Antoinette movie was being made, I got a little giddy.  First, Eva Green was rumored to play the infamous queen.  Then, it was verified that Diane Kruger would be taking the role.  I was a little wishy-washy at first about the thought of her in the part. But, with the release of these film stills... I'm starting to totally see it...

Above: Marie Antoinette (Diane Kruger) shares an embrace with her friend the Duchesse de Polignac (Virginie Ledoyen). 

The new film, titled "Farewell, My Queen" is Chantal Thomas' novel.  It centers around Sidonie Laborde (played by Lea Seydoux), a reader to the queen.

I'm swooning over the costumes and set...

Gorgeous, no?
Thanks to Lumiere for these stills!  And to Tea at Trianon for pointing me toward the post on Playlist.

Psssst! Love Marie Antoinette decor as much as I do?  Check out one of my early decor boards, inspired by none other than Marie Antoinette herself!

Shelby, I totally forgot that was Diane in National Treasure. I loved her in that, too!

Diane Kruger was amazing as Helen of Troy- I'm sure she'll do an equally fabulous job as Marie Antoinette! Can't wait:)
Thank you for the link! I am looking forward to seeing the film, too!!!

I can't wait to see this one :) I'm fascinated with Marie Antoinette as well! I'm still getting used to Diane Kruger as Marie, but I'm sure she'll do a great job. And I love the costumes in the pictures you posted. They're so beautiful!


DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done. I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia .

Penny's Apartment | Big Bang Theory

Aniela, a lovely reader from Germany, sent me an email requesting advice on recreating the style of Penny's apartment on Big Bang Theory. 

Blair's Room | Gossip Girl Decor

Manhattan's debutante Blair Waldorf happens to be my favorite Gossip Girl character.  Her behavior and feelings vary from snobbish to sensitive, but she always (except for a few rare occasions) looks and acts totally pulled together.  Her luxurious bedroom is fit for a queen---and is as pulled together as her preppy fashion ensembles.
