Back in 1786, Marie Antoinette earned the nickname of “Madame Deficit” after spending more than twice her allowance on 172 new gowns, ordered in one year alone. You could easily call that the height of extravagance, but the splendor surrounding her name is a subject that continues to seduce and captivate.
Drawing loose references to the Queen of France herself, Bartlomiej Chabalowski’s superb photo shoot brims with regal, lavish details, easily calling to mind Marie Antoinette’s taste for extravagance.
Gorgeous flower embellishments, rich layers of tulle and exquisite brocades culminate with a flamboyant gown made out of hundreds of gold feathers aligned beautifully in an ethereal shape.
Sweet and utterly feminine, adorned with roses, oversized bows and delicate lace, the photo shoot features hair, make-up and styling by Marcin Kulak (www.marcinkulak.com).
