Marie-Antoinette

Considered in her day to be one of the most beautiful women in Europe, Marie-Antoinette remains an icon of French fashion and beauty to this day. Eccentric and innovative, she stood out with her extravagant hair styles. Her most celebrated creation is undoubtedly the one dedicated to Lafayette's victory on board the Belle-Poule, for which she styled her hair with a model of the ship.

In addition to her hairstyles, Marie-Antoinette used to pay particular attention to her dresses, which she would change three or four times a day by selecting from among the 170 outfits that were made for her each year!
