Queen Elizabeth s Wedding Tiara | POPSUGAR Fashion

Marie-Antoinette is the most controversial woman in French history. She had a
complex personality. She was a multi-faceted woman; frivolous, a big spender
and sentimental, but also a modern woman who wanted to preserve her
intimacy and her freedom. Marie-Antoinette was only fifteen years old when she
arrived from Vienna to Versailles to marry Louis, who would be the future
Louis XVI.

Marie-Antoinette did not care about the rumors . She was a rebel from the start. When she first arrived at the court she refused to wear her corset, a torturous instrument designed to cinch the woman’s waist making it thinner and the breasts larger. She rebelled against the strict rules of Versailles. She was not allowed to get dressed by herself. After waking the queen was dressed in front of the most important ladies of the court. She had to wait, naked and shivering, whilst fifteen countesses who awaited her decided who will have the privilege to give a shirt to the queen.

Eventually Marie-Antoinette suppressed this humiliating ritual which resulted in angry aristocrats. She wasn’t allowed to voice political opinions, so she took refuge in the private sphere and decided to become the fashion icon of the court. She had no intimate relationships, one could say that she compensated for her lack of love by
becoming a shopping addict. Each morning she saw her dressmaker, Rose Bertin, to choose what to wear to keep the title of the most beautiful woman in France. Before Chanel and Dior, there was Rose Bertin, a commoner and humble dressmaker.
