Biography of Marie Antoinette.

The Washington Post - Suzanne D'Amato

Weber's book is an ode to the art of dressmaking at its most fantastic, a heady, gorgeous glimpse into the past…Queen of Fashion is as richly imagined as the gowns it describes, but its narrow focus comes at the expense of some biographical detail; those looking for a comprehensive portrait of Marie Antoinette's life will be left wanting. As sociology, however, it's nothing short of stunning. When every day is casual Friday, it's easy to forget the ways in which clothing speaks volumes about class, sexuality and power—sometimes more so than even its wearer intends.
