Teen Fashion Queen

For a look at a true fashionista, take in Sophia Coppola's

Marie Antoinette

, which opens next Friday. Sure, all of the reviewers agree that the movie falls apart once Francis Ford's daughter strays from frippery to history (including our own J. Hoberman, whose review can be found

here

), but the fashions are worth the price of admission. And how ironic that the movie is opening tonight — just a week (and lots of years) after the "teen Queen" was beheaded on October 16, 1793. For an insightful look at Antoinette, her true nature and her courtier styles, check out Judith Thurman's excellent (but long) piece in the

New Yorker

.

For those of you who just read for the pictures, here are some advance snaps from the press kit.
