I fell in love with Versailles. The grandeur, the gilding, the gardens - just too much for the mind and eye to absorb. I visited the Palace and Gardens a few years back and ever since that moment I became intrigued by both Louis XIV and Marie Antoinette - probably two of the most disliked people in French history. I actually wrote my final art history paper on the rise and inevitable fall of these two figures. The fashion world, like me, has always been captivated by her storied fashions and her mile-high wigs. These photographs shot on location for Vogue Japan are breath-taking. I could stare at them for forever.
