Post subject:  Need Help With An Assignment

I'm in ninth grade and need help with an assignment about Marie Antoinette. I'm supposed to write about the following, and need at least five examples: "If your figure was here today what would he/she like: TV shows, movies, songs, books, fashion, food, sports, and games."

I know that she would obviously be interested in the most expensive and stylish clothing lines and that she was not very much interested in science and math. I'm not sure of what food she liked or what music.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I got marked off for not having enough examples on this (even though I fit all of the requirements). So, now she's making me do even more. I have to have two or more examples from each of the following categories(I will put it in blue if I do not have any examples, green if I already have one example, and yellow if I already have two. I will also put the examples I already have below so if you feel that one of them is incorrect, please feel free to let me know.): TV shows, movies, songs, books, fashion, food, sports, and games.

TV Shows: Nothing yet
Movies: Nothing yet
Songs: Mozart's Magic Flute and I need another example
Books: Nothing Yet
Fashion: Gucci and Chanel
Food: Croissant (Was the only thing she would eat when she came to France) and I need another example
Sports: Nothing yet
Games: Nothing yet

:help:

I mostly need help with the TV shows, movies and books.

Thanks!

:help:

Marie Antoinette played the clavichord and probably the harpsichord and also the harp. She also sang and there is the story where she ran in the hallway and bumped Mozart. She was very musical. Her fashion while she wore it well wasn't as interesting to her as were horses and she was a very fine horsewoman. She also danced. The theater was a great love of hers and that is one of the reasons she dressed as Vesta sometimes.

At what age would Marie Antoinette be for the purposes of your assignment?

In her younger years, she liked partying and gambling.....so maybe today she' like Monaco and the scene there. She was raised with the finer things in life - she'd likely be a patron of the Arts, supportive of the theatre, opera and the artistic community. Take a look at the young Royals of today, when MA was younger, and loved by the French people, she may have been like Kate Middleton who is certainly loved by most.
If it's a older MA, she adored her children. She liked decorating herself as well as her environment - decorating her homes and gardens would be an interest today.
She surrounded herself with beauty, so you could use that to tie her in with alot of things. Fashion designer, home decoraing, master gardening, etc. Hope this gives you some ideas!

She would most probably have lived in South Side Chicago listening to hip hop and driving a big car. She would have died in a cross fire. Other questions ?

And by the way judging by her choice of companionship when she came down with the flu in Trianon, she would have been likely to opt for a men only flatshare !

It would be for most of her life as Queen of France -- From when she was about nineteen to when she died.

She would like a TV show about interior decoration.

Or maybe "Desperate housewives"! :)

As a movie she would "Barry Lyndon" by Kubrick. Anything modern would just be too much for her!

Books - "Tess of the d'Urbervilles" by Thomas Hardy (love story) and any biography of Lady Diana Spencer

Sports:

Horseriding
Snooker

She would have liked "La Bohême" by Puccini as an opera
