I fully recommend you look for "Marie Antoinette Style" by Adrien Gotz, "The Private Realm of Marie Antoinette" by Marie-France Boyer and "Queen of Fashion: What Marie Antoinette Wore to the Revolution" by Caroline Weber.

My dear girl, I absolutely recomend "Queen of Fashion: What Marie Antoinette Wore to the Revolution." It is an amazing book. One of the major ways that Marie Antoinette influenced the french and thus the world style was in her rejection of the habite de Cour or the Robe a la Francaise in favour of the rustic en gaulle. She was hated for this by the old members of the Aristocracy who stated that it was the look of a milkmaid. Imagine a queen dressed as a peasant. Many also faulted her for discarding french fashion in favour of the more english muslim and rustic fabrics.
Lots of more where that came from in the forementioned book.

Goodluck on your speech. I did a similar one complete with a powerpoint presentation about 4 months ago!!!
