I dont know why.. i guess it is simple, i like her much more grandious.. this kind of extravagant and grandious style historians call Antoinette s style... She was after all an fashion icon..

I like the feminine and fresh look of a la polonaise dress best. I think the en gaulle style makes her look a bit drab..which I suppose is what she was going for in her country retreat. hmmm....

I simply adore her in her voluminous velvet dresses, with the fur trimmings. Although, the formal a la Francaise is a close second... Indeed, a fashion icon!
A la Polonaise is wondeful too... :mrgreen:

A la Francaise is my favourite style...I know it wasn't probably very compfortable, but those magnificent dresses are wonderful to see...

I simply ADORE the elegant fur trimmed, velvet dresses (no matter how uncomfortable they may have been). I'm sure that Marie-Antoinette much preferred the lighter, garden dresses that she wore in the later years, without the strict structure of these beautiful pieces of "art" - and they were lovely (for what they were....) but as a Queen, there is just no comparison to the regalness of velvet & fur (with a HUGE skirt & train!) I would indeed wear this gorgeous dress any day of the week - and outfit my little "princesses" in equal grandeur! :D

:blob3: So I think it's very difficult to decide wich style is more beautiful- I like all of Marie Antoinette's dresses!

à la polonaise for me! It's much less restrictive and allows more freedom of movement I say.

Lovely dress altogether, wouldn't mind having one of my own!
