Who are the above-mentioned Comte? I've never heard of them!!! Are they Paris Hilton-type people? :)

I must disagree. These women are famous only in select circles and are not widely known. Also they are mere celebrities, not royalty, and I don't think you can compare them. They were not sharing a bed with the ruler of a powerful country.

I must heartily agree with this, Christophe.

Thanks for the links Fleur! Rachel Zoe is so thin in that photo I actually thought she WAS Nicole Ritchie at first :shock:

Unfortunately Marie Antoinette is a huge part of pop-culture today and with that ideologies surrounding her from the 18th century till today have been greatly perpetuated. For example, the whole 'let them eat cake' still is attributed to her; learning about democracy in a politics course at University, television, movies, etc has shown me as much. What is accredited to her other than pink, frilly, decadent, opulence? Rarely do we hear things such as how she portrayed such contemporary, kind thinking, adopting poor children, defying Darwinist/racialisation by adopting children of other nationalities, but this always gets me, prisoner of a whole country that hates you.... what human cannot sympathise with this?

Yes Marie Antoinette was Queen of France and could have what she wished for, but she was no different to any courtier or nobleman back then. Pop-culture has just perpetuated ideologies of being a rich haughty, careless being as I mentioned before through the media.

But we can all play a part in changing this, through educating others about the truth of who Marie Antoinette really was.

I want to share with you my rage. :evil:
In one women magazine some national celebrities were answering the question: In which movie you would like to live and as whom? One young make-up artist said something like that “I would like to play Marie Antoinette in the same named movie because…(pretty dresses, make up, hair…) but I wouldn’t like to be in the skin of insensitive and unscrupulous Marie Antoinette for a long time because her character and her acts are so against my understanding of morality, generosity and humanity. It is so awful that one young woman dared to say such bad things about the subject and person she obviously does not know.
:angry4: :angryfire: :angry4:

You should write a letter of complaint to this awful magazine! Explain why this woman is so terribly wrong and why the real Marie Antoinette is a figure to be admired. :angryfire:

It is not the magazine but the woman who gave the interview. I was so angry! And the way she wanted to show her own morality and sensitivity is just pathetic. She only managed to show the lack of knowledge. :angry1:

Hi everyone! I've been away for some time after a little disappointment, but never mind, I'm here because I love MA :)
I don't know if these were posted before. A friend sent them today and I knew I had to share them :P

Beautiful images Delilah.
At first I thought she looks too big on some of them but that’s only because I can’t get used to her having very full figure later in her life.

Me too, not only about Marie Antoinette.
I just have a fear of living in an illusion, positive or negative. Sometimes I can’t correctly estimate people I know so I am very careful when it comes to historical figures. :?
