Orange for the King
This costume was featured in "Farewell, my Queen" and was worn by Xavier Beauvois as Louis XVI. The colour is very unusual for an entire ensemble but it actually is rather beautiful. The golden orange is only broken of by the sky-blue sash. Once again we a brooch of a significant size but it does not seem to be the same as the one on other photos.
The lace at the neck and the sleeves are lightly coloured to match the satin of the coat and trousers. The coat is embroidered at the buttons with warm tones of red and green. This embroidery also appears at the end of the sleeves.
