What was Marie Sntoinette's favorite color? I always assumed it was blue, but then I heard somewhere it was purple, then light pink... What is it? :(

Post not pink
i think it was blue,and i read that she belive pink was color only for very young people,like kids,adolescents,and i think untill 20-25 years,but after this age women dont used this color,and versailles had etiquette even for this,cause very old women ussually used black color...

Indeed. I learned this from Chantal Thomas' studies. Marie Antoinette hated orange colour...

I wonder if she disliked orange because of her hair colour? If she did have a hint of 'unfashionable' red in her hair she may have wanted to steer clear of anything which might highlight that? Of course, she may quite simply, have not liked orange!

I think that she just did not like this color… but her hair was not really red, but more a red-blond mixture :D

No, dear. Sandy blond is "blond vénitien", just like Isabelle Huppert. Splendid ! Look at Marie Antoinette's eyes brows on her Kusharsky painting, the one that is not finished... :D
