Marie Couture...


I have been stumbling upon the most A~mazing gowns and images lately. I had to stop myself from eye~candy overload! I couldn't help to think, what if Marie Antoinette lived now. Would she be a fashionista today? Of course she would!!! Look at how she inspires so many even now.


I am loving this Valentino gown. How amazing and beautiful is the back!?! Wow! A girl should look just as ravishing going as she does arriving! :) The color is my favorite.

I just could not help but to fall in love with this image. The walls, the beautiful little chair, the colors, the fabrics, the whimsy, that ceiling! I could get lost.


Oh my! Oh my! Look at those shoes, and the hats! The hat with the bows is just darling and those sleeves! I so appreciate the vision and the exquisite detail these designers give us. I could take a nap on all those layers and yards of silk :)


The bodice inspired by that oh~so~famous necklace is truly incredible! I'm in love! I'm like a bird...anything shiny catches my eye.

Inspired in so many ways! The background is so pretty too.

I tried to get this pic bigger for you with no luck. Still, a gorgeous image. The shape and the color are worthy of MA!
I have more for you next time! It has been a grueling week as I am still preparing my big surprise for you! Have a fabulous and stylish (long) weekend!

  1. wow...

    wouldn't it be fab if we could see her in them 'today'?
    ( time travel is my thing )


  2. C' est si chic et joli! You really know how to find just the right pictures! The colors are so soft and subtle and I swooned over that pink bodice....Merci mille fois chèrie pour les images, si belles, si, si...quoi...ravissantes! Forgive me pour avoir fait des bêtises with my youtube! It multiplied on its own comme les lapins...but thank you for your kind comments. Have a fabulous weekend. Anita

  3. I love the Galliano photo, it's so good that I'd consider hanging it on my wall! No 1, 2 plus the last are also really gorgeous. But Judith, you're torturing us with the big surprise hints... Good luck with the rest of the preparations - please tell us soon!

  13. Love Marie and anything Marie inspired. These are amazing!

  14. Judith,
    I am in love with that Galliano image! She looks like a chandelier! And love that mustard sheer dress with the entire look! So whimsical. Yes, Marie has been an inspiration to all in many many ways. I think the images you chose she would wear today for sure!
    Beautiful post!

  15. MA definitley inspired fashionistas for centuries:) I love the ruffles, the fabric and those hats are to die for! Thanks for this delicious eye candy this morning. Have a wonderful weekend:)

  16. Bonjour Judith!

    You always post the most gorgeous and opulent images! I love all of the gowns. I especially love Galliano's artistic approach. As Kimora Simmons would say...lot's of fabulosity!. Thanks for the kind words and yes, please do keep me posted when you come up north. I would love to meet up with you and your family. I am looking forward to it.
