Pink Bow Dress
This is one of Kirsten Dunst's dresses in Marie Antoinette and is worn in a dinner scene as well as a church scene. The dress is a robe à la Francaise due to the pleadings descending from the back's neckline. Mainly blue silk has been used for this costume except for the three pink bows attached to the bodice as well as the white pleaded fabric peeping up at the neckline and the sleeves. Also, a paler shade of blue has been chosen for the piece on the bodice where the bows are sewn onto - notice that a brooch is attached to the upper bow. This strip of paler blue is edged with pleaded ribbons in a slightly darker blue than the rest of the outfit. The petticoat is without any particular decoration and continues the blue colour as the sleeves and the main part of the bodice.
