Queen of Fashion: What Marie Antoinette Wore to the Revolution by Caroline Weber
Queen of Fashion: What Marie Antoinette Wore to the Revolution

A great, gossipy biography of a subject who has been addressed over and over again. I couldn't help drawing parallels to Princess Di. Antoinette was a powerless person who made herself an icon but didn't see the shifts in popular opinion, or perhaps didn't care. Presents an interesting angle.
