Not only did Chanel’s Cruise 2013 presentation take place at Marie Antoinette’s former home of Versailles, but Karl Lagerfeld also put a cheeky twist on fashion’s famous doyenne and her beauty looks by giving his models their own “beauty marks”, which were actually tiny intersecting double-C logos, and decking them out in a variety of pastel wigs. Additionally, his couture creations paid homage to her penchant for extravagance with beautifully embroidered gowns that were amplified with hip padding.

Marie Antoinette’s sway over the fashion world is still so strong that even in the year 2014 designers like Raf Simons were exploring the silhouette potential of hoop skirts and panniers at Dior. The exaggerated shape of his slim-fitting bodice, enormous skirts, and pastoral embroidery formed a striking and memorable collection for the the fall season

Nicolas Ghesquière had a particular knack for effortlessly fusing the past and the present, and for Spring/Summer 2006 at Balenciaga he wove a strange and alluring tale inspired by both Marie Antoinette and Billy Idol for a riotous and provocative collection. There was a sense of Idol’s dandyism at work in the full-skirted, full-lace looks that proved that the 1780s and the 1980s (both eras obsessed with their own view of extravagance) were really a perfect match.
Oscar de la Renta Spring/Summer 2013
Lest we forget, Marie Antoinette was a teenage queen, married off to Louis XVI at the unbelievably young age of 14. Perhaps her youth accounted for her decadent, irresponsible love of opulence and finery, but regardless we’re almost certain it contributed to her sense of whimsy when it came to fashion experimentation. For Spring/Summer 2013, Oscar de la Renta celebrated her joyful embrace of vibrant pastels, lavish crystal embroidery, and towering wigs with a modern spin on Rococo styles.
Simone Rocha Fall/Winter 2014
Simone Rocha explored a maudlin side to fashion royalty with a Fall/Winter 2014 collection filled with empire-waist dresses and voluminous skirts done in a slick, noir palette.
Hervé Léger Spring/Summer 2011
Hervé Léger placed a hyper-modern, ultra-sensual spin on the Marie Antoinette reference by reinventing 18th century corsetry with fitted moulded silhouettes in fabrics like velvet, rubber, and perforated leather, and then amplified the silhouette through the hips with tiered ruffles.
