A Dream of Versailles

Bonjour my friends! I am of course a huge fan of the very talented Mr. Karl Lagerfeld. I love his designs, his vision, his creativity, and his photography. I have many times swooned over his perfect editorial pages and his ads (for example his gorgeous photos for the Dom Perignon ads). However, this must be my favorite!
This photo shoot by the world-famous couturier takes place on the grounds of one of my favorite locales...Versailles. I can't imagine a more breath taking backdrop than the gardens of Versailles for any photo.

The shoot was inspired by the outrageous and fashionable Marie~Antoinette and is just beautiful.

Models: Jessica Stam and Snejana Onopka.

I love this one...

This one reminds me of Audrey Hepburn in Funny Face

I do believe that the next time I visit I shall dress in couture and commission a hat from my local millinery designer, feathers and all! A dream, I know...:)
All photos taken by Karl Lagerfeld and published in the Harper's Bazaar Romania

  1. Wow, thank you for the eye candy! These are gorgeous.

  2. So beautiful and creative! I would dress like that everyday we are obviously displaced in this century

  3. When I rounded the corner and stepped into the world of Versailles, my heart stopped. And for some strange reason I felt like I had been there before!Lately that is all I have been thinking about so your post today reminds me to make another trip a priority, soon. Gorgeous photo of model on top of huge planter, these creative. Everyone should wear couture and hats when they visit Versailles, great plan!

  4. I wish that is how all tourists would visit Versailles, instead of in jeans, tshirts and tennis shoes! When I make it there next year I know I will wear something somewhat more fashionable than that!

  5. After looking at these ultra-thin models I'm thinking about leaving the sugar out of my coffee this morning! Hi Judith! Look!!!! I'm actually up early today! We're usually meeting each other across cyber space in the nighttime hours. I'm just blown away by the fact that Karl Lagerfeld does his own photography. He's certainly had years of being around the best photographer's in the business to learn from, so why not! These photos are smashing. Have a great weekend girlfriend!

  6. Karl Lagerfeld is TALENT!!! I love the BEAUTY of Versailles!

    I look forward to seeing your return photos on your next trip!!!;)

  7. to dream for...who wouldn't want a dress like one of those even for only one day in Versailles....
    beautiful shots !

  8. Great images! Karl is such a creative designer and artist. He couldn't have picked a better background.

    Have a great day

  9. OH MY GOSH!!! How do you find this amazing stuff???
    I am SOOOOOO glad you are back!

  10. Any thing with Karl Lagerfeld and Marie Antoinette in the same breath certainly gets my attention. What wonderful shots Judith, xv.

  11. Allo Judith! Don't you love the Fuschia and black combination? The hats make the outfits all the more glamorous. Versailles is sooo the place for these beautful pictures! Wish we could be there;) Thanks!

  12. SIMPLY STUNNING!!!! Wonderful photos and lovely blog!

  13. I'm with A. Design: Versailles should institute special days for visitors in couture!
    Great post .... Judith
