Fastes de cour at Versailles

Johanna from 18th Century Blog has recently returned from Versailles and has posted some amazing pictures of the Court Pomp & Royal Ceremony on her blog. I'm sure it doesn't equal to actually being there, but for those of us who live across the pond, it's the closest we can get. Thanks Johanna for the pics. Enjoy :-)

Wow that gown is insane. They must have had to widen many-a-doorway to accomodate the ladies during that period.

Wow. That gown is incredible. I guess the hippie look was in then, huh? Too bad big hips aren't exactly fashionable today!
