Thanks for posting! :) Are there any more photos or pages from that particular interview?


Yes, there are quite a few. I didn't know whether to post them all in one or to post the individually or what, so I'll post them in two different posts. I hope it's alright.

The dresses in the following pictures are all costumes from the movie.

And here are the dresses made by various designers for the photo shoot.

Image
This one is Alexander Mcqueen

Image\
This one was made by Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel Couture

Image\
This one is Oscar de la Renta

Image
This one was made by Nicolas Ghesquière for Balenciaga

Image
This one was made by John Galliano for Dior Couture

I'm sorry if there are too many of them or if they are too big.

I found some fashion photos of modern "18th century dresses" and hairstyles...

Thank you both, Sillage de la Reine and Brittany!
Sillage de la Reine, where do your last pictures come from? I find them really cool!

Turns out a Dutch museum in Den Haag has a major costume collection. Unfortunately, they only show certain pieces at a time, and seem to extend that principle to their on-line samples.But there's a mantua here:

and a sumptuous male suit a bit further on:

A related site mentions some fashion magazines from our period, but only offers the following nineteenth century material, which might nonetheless interest the more hardcore dressophiles here:

As an artist, (NOT as a historian!!) I found the Coppola movie utterly mouth watering. The blue dress "Marie" wore when coming across the border into France inspired my muse mightily.

As have all the luscious offerings !!

I have found three new images of Robe a la Francais the first one circa 1770-1790. I find this one interesting because it's plaid ( or it looks like plaid to me) which is rather uncommon.

As of right now I have a really weird obsession with later robe a la francaises ( yes extant garments do exist but you do have to search but these are my favorites.) You can see a dramatic narrowing of the back pleats if you compare the two below to most Robes a la Francaises. This would been the sort of dress Antoinette wore when she was in her thirties. I'll be quiet now and show you the photos. :)

I like the green one, especially the sleeves and how tight it looks.

Why not? :) You can make it. I would try too but I am afraid of the challenge!

Unfortunately I have a lot of other things I need to get done i.e. stays, pocket hoops, etc; hopefully I'll make one soon. :)

I love these pictures that are from a Lavazza calendar. They are a coffee company that does amazing calendars every year.

This starts in 1794, but might interest hard core modistas:

And while I'm at it this is full-on 19th, but has some lovely color pictures buried in it:

There are many nice images of the dresses from the end of the 18th century and the 19th century. Thank you.

Just one beautiful example (19th century) -

http://www.ancarpost.org/picture.php?/1000/category/31

Makes me sorry for the fashion of today.

I am sure there is a painting of a woman wearing the same type of dress (impressionism) maybe painted by Renoir or Manet.
