This Couture Evening Gown in the collection of the MET was my original inspiration for the Marie Antoinette costume. I know, you can't tell. But, hopefully next time I wear the costume it will look a little closer to this.
How I ADORE this gown. It's so divine! I would have loved to wear this (in white) as my wedding dress. But, I was afraid it would look a little too over the top. :) Someday I would love to incorporate the swirls and bows of this ruched trim into a costume.
