Dress of Duchess de Char

The Duchesse de Char is not  a very prominent figure in Marie Antoinette (2006) but - like everyone else - she also had amazing costumes. She is the one who complains to Count Mercy that Marie Antoinette did not invite the Duc and Duchesse to her small gatherings at Petit Trianon. The dress is kept in the normal pale colours that were favoured among the ladies at Versailles but this dress has a more discreet colour choice. The dress itself is pale pink - almost nude - and the bodice is trimmed with ribbon with golden and pink edges. The main focus of the bodice are the two flowers - they are placed on white lace (you can just see the edge over the flowers). The sleeves are edged with the same white lace and bows. The final touch is the ribbon around the neck.
