Day and Night

Had a double dose of Sofia Coppola's The Virgin Suicides and Marie Antoinette last weekend.
I am amazed with the stunning visuals and colour schemes that she incorporated in both movies,
though each were different as day and night.

The Virgin Suicides infused more of an earthy element and lovely play of sunlight and shadows while Marie Antoinette was pastel candy - coloured heaven with its stunning costumes and confectionery alike.
It is really hard to say which one I adore more.

I would also like to apologize for the images overload,
it's so hard to choose which ones to include!
They are all so very beautiful! Hope you enjoy them as much as I do:)

Let them eat cake!

"What we have here is a dreamer.
Someone completely out of touch with reality."

p.s. I think Kirsten Dunst never looked lovelier than in The Virgin Suicides, don't you agree?

I love Sofia Coppolla's works! I've seen the movie 'Marie Antoinette' about a thousand times and I love the ambiance, the colours and the storie. It's an amazing movie. The Virgin Suicides I've never seen, but after reading this, I totally will!
I also love the campaign of Miss Dior Chérie L'eau, which is directed by Sofia Coppolla too!

Love, E

What a beautiful post! Sometimes I underestimate Kirstin's beauty... because she really is truly beautiful! Especially in pale shades and pastels like this.

Oh, as for your question... yes, my mother is Japanese :)

haven't seen either of these yet as I have an aversion towards Kirsten Dunst. But these pictures are so pretty that I may have to try them. I love how they are similar but different, the same pale, warm tones, but in completely different settings. Thank you for sharing these images...

AsianCajuns said...

I loved the visuals in Marie Antoinette! I always want to wear pastels and eat macaroons all day after I watch that movie.

I have yet to see the Virgin Suicides. It's on my list!

Flashes of Style said...

Oooh I love marie antionette! so divine :)

COCOVANA said...

I loveee both movies! She really captured what France was all about in those days. And the virgin suicides was also amazing following that hippie natural vibe.

unfortunately I let a classmate borrow The Virgin Suicides and he never gave it back ):

Kristin Dunst is surely something else. The pictures you found of previous movies she acted in are wonderful.
& I agree, she looked amazing in The Virgin Suicides.

Marie Antionette has become one of my favorite movies, but I have yet to see The Virgin Suicides. I had no idea that Kirsten Dunst starred in it as well. Gotta check it out!
