Get the Look of Marie Antoinette

10/20/2006 at 06:00 AM ET

Marie Antoinette opens in movie theaters today, and the buzz is already growing fast and furious about Milena Canonero’s exquisitely executed costumes. Director Sofia Coppola gave PEOPLE the scoop: “The costumes had to be an important element in the story because Marie Antoinette was so into fashion. We obviously based it on that period, but then took certain license.” We think blending the baroque and the modern is a great idea, and certainly won’t be surprised when we see celebs sporting Marie Antoinette inspired pieces on the red carpet soon. In the meantime, click through to the next page to see a few products you can get right now that nod to the young onscreen queen.

This movie is so going to be a top box office hit, I love the fashion in this movie very regal like.

AnnieM on

Kirsten looks beautiful in the costumes (but that doesn’t surprise me – she’d look good in burlap).

Susan on

I am very excited to see this movie. I want to see the clothes and the sets. I really don’t care if the plot is weak, I am going for the costumes. Now if only I can convince my husband to see it…

i was surprised to hear all the ‘marie-antoinette’ buzz around lately, cuz this movie came out in france at least three months ago and i thought people hated it cuz i never heard anything about, but now i see why. btw the movie was great, not a cinematic masterpiece, but the clothes and music were sooo good, loved it and so did my boyfriend. not a chick flick at all.

jess on

kristen dunst is so homely looking, even with all that make-up and the gorgeous costume.

Allison T. on

The costumes look fantastic, but Kirsten Dunst STILL looks bland!

Jackie on

I don’t want to see this movie. Kirsten Dunst is an awful actress. I don’t know why they went with her.

Amee on

I am so excited to see this movie!! I want to know how to get a dress like that. Does anyone know if they will be selling the wardrobe from the movie? If they do how do you find out about it?

Isabel on

I went to see this film in new york screening. It was not that good. I saw many ppl fall asleep, so did I.

As pick-ee as I am with clothing, though I have a few hit and misses myself, I have always love the Marie Antoinette look. This is fab… jeans to make it hip… slacks to make it elegant.. sling backs or boots… with jewels or without… it’s abosultely fabulous!!!

Zachery on

i think this is going to be an awsome movie. it has alot to do with history. also kirsten dunst is an awsome actress. i love all the movies i have seen her in. especially elizabethtown it is the best movie i have seen her in. she is so hot.

kayleigh on

This movie is going to inspire a new fashion and its going to bring out lots of new styles. I cant wait to see it.

Lisa M. on

I am on the same boat with Susan: I can not *WAIT* to see this movie! I am a huge history buff, especially the fashion. I am sure I won’t be dissapointed with the costumes in this movie.

I also think that Kirsten is perfect for this role. Marie Antoinette was very young when she married King Louis. She had a child-like aura about her, so does Kirsten. Kirsten (in my opinion) is even better looking than Marie was (although I am sure the paintings of her do not do her justice).

j on

if i see this movie it’ll be to support sophia coppola as the director only.

criss on

well, i do want to see the movie undo I don´t like very much Kirsten maybe because I think she has 0 personality, she´s too week..

Karen on

I believe Kirstin was the worse Actress for this role, with that huge wide face of hers, and then all the pale make-up making her head look even bigger!!!Her cheeks are humoungous too begin with! Just like i can’t believe they think shes so hot to be a cheerleader captain in the other movie “bring it on’. I just don’t get it!! I guess her acting is good, but she is also a drunk- she laughed when her friend got arrested on punked!!when she was the drunk one!

Richelle on

I don’t care what other people thinks but I love the fashion and the characters and the settings. I’m looking forward to see this!

janis on

Are you Kiddding? Sophie’s work will be wonderful & NEW we need to step back at a time that well never be replaced. The fever for life! You still will find it in New Orleans,La

wolfy on

Ah, the Marie Antoinette look.

White-powdered face, rouged lips and cheeks, powdered wig upon your head, don’t bathe for some time and douse yourself with toilet water.

Wear multiple layers of clothing, including pantalettes, hoops and corset, and try and breathe, let alone try to walk more than a few steps (or dance the minuet).

Then think about how long it takes to put all this on and take it all off, or even go to the restroom!

Yeah, this look is JUST what the doctor ordered…

LeeAnn on

i like the fashion in this movie and really like the era it is in i havent seen it yet but really want to i think kirstin portreys marie very well, she looks very elegant in this role and i think it suits her

fashin_mavn19 on

Just because Kirsten’s spine pops out doesn’t mean she is incredibly underweight. My body looks just like that. I thought the clothes were beautiful. I also loved the modern music, Moulin Rouge! style.
