Farewell My Queen

15 August 2011

There haven’t been many production shots released from the shooting of the upcoming film Les Adieux à la Reine (Farewell My Queen) about the final days of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette’s court at Versailles in October 1789.

The few I’ve seen though look really ropey with just horrible costumes (that eye bleeding shade of green for instance!) and general naffness abounding. I think that the fashion conscious Marie Antoinette would have tittered behind her ostrich feather fan at the outmoded coiffure that Diane Kruger appears to be sporting in this photograph.

It’s always the hair that they get wrong. Tsk.

On the other hand, maybe I’m just bitter that my MAJOR GIRL CRUSH Eva Green won’t be playing Marie Antoinette…
