She gets a new outfit everyday. Her outfits are worth thousands of dollars. They are very detailed and heavy. She enjoyed the size of her gowns. the bigger the better in her mined. That was also the motto when it came to her hats. Her headpieces were sometimes up to 3, 4 feet tall. Even just around the palace she would enjoy wearing her new gowns. They were all costume made for her. She never missed an occasion where she could show off this extreme pieces. Women all over longed to be able to own just one of those beautiful gowns.

Nice post Maddie! Smile
I think we can agree that Marie Antoinette's fashion was very "extravagant". She was publicly loathed for wearing such fashion, and because of all the money that was spent for those dresses. Much of the population in France thought that she was an ignorant queen because she never realized what was happening behind the palace walls. Aside from her bold fashion choices, she was also very disliked because for a very long time, no offspring was produced. This began terrible and dreadful rumors about the Queen and the King. So, her fashion choices just added up to more reasons as to why to dislike her
