oh, the converses (according to a SC interview) were put there to symbol what a child she was. i assume as in at heart and how like us modern childrend she was. im guessing thats what the hot pink was for. and i think Comt ment the accual style of the dresses, not the color. (feel free to contradict Comt)

Uhm, The pink looked good, for the style Sofia was portraying.
Even though, not historically accurate.
The converse symbolized her tenage sense.

In day to day, black was not accurate.

Black was used for mourning periods only.

Black was used in this movie, during the mourning, and during the masquerade. Masquerade is perfectly acceptable to wear black.

It wasn't really a true black it was either a grey or a dark brown. When I have my book I'll quote from it word for word. I couldn't find it in my book. :(

However I do remember reading in the book that the garments looked brown however over the years they lighten to a brown.

Here is a link concerning correct color for 18th century clothes. I hope this helps! :angel6:

Also there was hot pink. There is a bed room in Versailles that is hung all over in bright shocking pink. Monsieur Andre has a picture of it in the post Rooms from the movie. However (that is not from the movie,) it is a bedroom in Versailles. !The 50's pink, well that wasn't the first time anyone had seen that color. no more than the 1960's were the first time in history woman wraped there poufs in paper before they went to bed. I was shocked to see that much magenta when I first saw that picture too. But if it's all over the walls, well they probably wore it too. I first saw that bedroom at the Versailles web site. I thought it was Madame Royals.

Im not sure if I like the uniformity of the last three kings rooms.

Seems too boring for Louis XIV.

I have to correct myself. Well at least when it comes to Scandinavian fashion of 18th century. The picture below depicts historically correct fashion of Scandinavia during 18th century from http://www.durantextiles.com/index.asp.

I thought that back then the French (well Royalty anyway) wore white when they were in mourning, and not black? I'm sure I read in a book about Mary Queen of Scots that as Queen of France when her husband Francis II died in 1560, her mourning clothes were white. Maybe things had changed by the 1700s though. :queen:

I'm pretty sure that, for a Queen of France, white was the color of mourning.

Refer to the last official portrait of MA, you see she is wearing all black while in the Temple, or conciergerie.
With a white bonnet. Mary queen of Scots... ew.
