Alexander McQueen and Victoria's SecretTo fête the release the Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette in 2006, Vogue enlisted Annie Leibovitz for an 18th-century-themed editorial starring Kirsten Dunst as the Dauphine. Photographed nowhere else but Versailles, Dunst is resplendent in designer interpretations of rococo fashions, descending the stairs of a gilded carriage and poised amongst members of her court all similarly done up in the confectious, pastel colors typical of 18th-century dress. Having built a reputation for reappropriating just about anything into their runway concoctions, the 2012 Victoria’s Secret fashion show presented a dress which resembled a McQueen gown worn by Dunst in the 2006 Vogue editorial.
