I know this is a very popular topic and that many other people have talked about it but I was wondering....do you think that if Du Berry hadnt ordered the necklace and that it wasnt so expensive that Marie Antoinette would have bought it? It was a rather taky thing, yes, but do you think she might have considered buying it?

I do not believe Marie Antoinette would have bought this necklace even if it was inexpensive... It didn't really appeal to her. It wasn't her style, perhaps. It's very elaborate, not my style either...

It's almost silly! :P

I've placed my order for this necklace, as a historical piece.
It's elaborate yes, very Dubarry. She wanted to outshine everyone at court.

Comte, you did order it? I think it will make a beautiful keep sake. I think Marie Antoinette did want it, but it was too expensive. I didn't know Dubarry ordered it. How was she to pay for that?

Yes I did. I had it set with blue stones, instead of the yellow ones like at Versailles. The original had blue. It was the center strand, and had blue diamonds. :]

It was ordered by DuBarry, and Was made for her, but by the time it was finnished, DuBarry was in exile, and had no money to pay for it. Made by the Queens personal Jeweler as well. He came to the queen asking her to buy it, as it had no buyer.

I find it kind of entertaining in an over-the-top bodice ripper sort of way. The costumes are gorgeous. It has the obligatory Camille Desmoulins cameo. Adrian Brody is super hot in that scene when he gets out of the bath. I'll grant it those merits.

Gross! I really dont like Brody! I really didnt like the movie, it made Swanks character seem so helpless! :evil: :angryfire:

But, the person that played MA was beautiful! :angel9:

Joley Richardson, I believe, played MA.

The movie annoyed me because it took one of history's great con-artists and made her into some soppy "I just want to avenge my family! Waaah!" heroine.
