We had our share of Marie Antoinette news in the past week and you know I’m the Dow Jones newswire of prettiness, so I’ll get to it.
1. Urban Outfitters’ step-by-step instructions on how to get Marie Antoinette’s hair and makeup. I’ll post a comprehensive post soon, collecting all these links, but for now take a look at this very informative guide from Urban Outfitters.
2. Christian Dior’s Haute Couture Spring 2011 Collection
Forgive me if you’ve seen these already. But I have to imagine if you have you won’t mind seeing them again since they aren’t hard on the eyes. Part Marie, part Mad Men and all marvelous, the photos are a dream. From Little Pink Wardrobe.
