Marie Antoinette was the queen of fashion best known for her amazing over the top hairdos, gorgeous jewelry and fabulous dresses. She represented the symbol of the 18th century extravagance. A true tend-setter of her time. She was a kind queen that was especially fond of children, possibly because she had been childless for so long, and she adopted a number of children during her reign. Marie gave liberally to charities. She established a home for unwed mothers; patronized the Maison Philanthropique, a society for the aged, widowed, and blind; and made frequent visits to poor families, giving them food and money. We love and respect her as being a powerful woman with boldness, courageousness and empathy that is why we have chosen her to represent our September box.
"When everyone else is losing their heads, it is important to keep yours." -Marie Antoinette
