sofia coppola’s marie antoinette carries a gorgeous color palette throughout the film

Sofia Coppola’s film, Marie Antoinette (2006) was overall a gorgeous movie, with actress Kirsten Dunst playing Marie Antoinette. And like a beautiful editorial spread, or a gorgeous home- when you dissect it a bit you realize a color palette was chosen at the beginning of the production and carried throughout. Everything from the stunning gowns to the furnishings to the flowers followed a color story and the result is magical and beautiful. If you have never seen this movie I’d highly recommend watching it. Sofia Coppola weaves modern day nuances and music into the historical movie to make it more fresh and modern. It’s pure eye candy. And the food..amazing displays of confections and jelly cakes and vegetable and shellfish towers to feast your eyes on. Filmed at Versailles this movie transports you into another world, if only for a few hours. I love pouring over these photos and watching this movie- what an inspiration. For the trailer to this movie here’s a link. And if you like this palette for your own home make sure to see yesterday’s color palette post with Benjamin Moore Paint color suggestions. -Lynn Butler Beling
