I was watching 'Marie Antoinette' the other day, and despite the countless times I've seen it, this short shot in the movie spiked some curiousity. I was going through my copy of Fairchild's Dictionary of Fashion, and came upon the actual name of this hairstyle/hat. The "Coiffure a la Independance" is also known as the "triumph of freedom" and was worn in 1778 to honor Benjamin Franklin's appearance at the French court for negotiation of a treaty between France and the US.
It's funny how you listen to band's and then kind of stop listening to them. This is the case. An old co-worker introduced this band to me way back in like 2007 or so. I can't even remember, but then I just kind of stopped listening to them until the other day when I heard this song for the Dior J'adore commercial. I love the way that perfume smells, anyway, Beth Ditto's voice is hard to forget. It's strong, powerful, and just evokes confidence to me.
