Marie beauty and hair tips, a bit of Dior and the Rose of Versailles

Hello Lovelies,

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.

Modern Maries go for rouged cheeks and light hair powder.

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.

3. Marie Antoinette + Manga
You might be aware of the  ’80s cartoon based on Marie and her friends. You might not know about the stories on which they were based and the reissued 3-volume set that started it all off. Le Monde covers what has become a phenomenon here (in French). To translate, click here.

If the books don’t interest you, this might: The author recently held a recital at Versailles dressed as Marie Antoinette and sang a piece written by our queen (as well as some piece from some fellow named Mozart).
