Post Would Marie Antoinette have worn Chanel?
Hello everyone,

Just a fun, whimsical topic to unwind and pass the time. If Marie had lived in modern times, do you think she would have worn Chanel or some other designer's creations? :)

Wondering,
Ray

I think she would of worn John Galliano for Dior, Alexander McQueen, Balenciaga and in her later years Stella McCartney, Chanel, Marc Jacobs and Willow.

Yes!!!! My favorite subjects of all, together...designers and MARIE ANTOINETTE! I believe she would love Dior by John Galliano, possibly even Valentino because it's so feminine, my favorite is Roberto Cavalli and own quite a few of his stuff, but I don't think she would like all the wild prints together which is Cavalli's signature look, but she'll love his evening gowns. Most celebs who've won music or movie awards in the past were wearing his dresses. Louis Vuitton definitely because it's French and I love their clothing and shoes(not so much for the handbags, they're designs are so unique and chic). Bottega Venetta, yes, Balenciaga...love it, and Donatella Versace. Oh I can't forget Oscar de la Renta, she would absolutely love his work.

Valentino and Oscar de la Renta - I didn't think of these. She might've loved Givenchy as well. But I get the feeling that she would of tried all the avant-garde designers such as Olivier Theyskens for Nina Ricci, Romance was Born, Akira Isogawa.

You all have such wonderful taste (although I don't know about Versace), but let us not forget my favorite, Giorgio Armani. :)

Thanks for responding,
Ray
