Pretty Pastel Dress

This beautiful yellow and pink pastel dress was worn by Kirsten Dunst as Marie Antoinette in the 2006-edition. The fabric is satin and the dress is worn with panniers (or hoops) to increase the volume at the hips. The bows and the trimming of the bodice is of pink/yellow striped satin with small flower-embroideries and pearls.

The bodice itself is sewn in three parts that would have been inforced with whalebone if the dress had actually belonged to Marie Antoinette herself. This dress does not have seams in the bodice but the panels makes it look as if it does. The bodice itselfs is closed by 7 hooks.
