Marie Antoinette is the 2006 film directed by Sophia Coppola. It took a highly stylised and sumptuous approach, with modern music – though nailing the cake thing. Reception was quite hostile – but maybe has improved? See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Loulabelle's FrancoFiles Ep 47 - Living in Versailles avec vintage Marie Antoinette! With pastries to make a queen swoon!
www.loulabellesfrancofiles.comMolly Wilkinson has loved pastry all her life. After a brief visit to France during her College years, & also after working 9-5 in the US for a number of years (which she loved by the way!) Molly decided to follow her passion for baking and explored options to go to the Cordon Bleu cooking school in Paris!Initially the idea was quite scary and Molly thought there would be lots of obstacles but in reality, furthering her training in cooking was more economical in Paris than in the US! She could rent an apartment in Paris, go to the famous Cordon Bleu school in the steps of Julia Child and eat French pastries in Paris every day whilst she was learning to make French pastries herself! Molly now lives in Versailles (no not the Château!) teaching cooking classes online and has just penned her brand new cookbook.For FrancoFilers who are into French pastry, following Molly's adventures will not leave you disappointed! In fact Molly's enthusiasm for everything she does is infectious! I loved seeing France through her eyes. Molly chatted to me about her visit to regional areas including the Dordogne, the Loire and Normandy. Her energy and joie de vivre is just beautiful. This chat really transported me to France momentarily!

France | Hôtel de Crillon, A Rosewood Hotel: A Historical Palace, Marie Antoinette, and How Paris is Always a Good Idea
Luxury Travel Insider
I’m excited to welcome our guest today, Vincent Billiard, the General Manager of the fabulous Rosewood Hotel de Crillon in the beating heart of Paris. With it’s official designation as a Palace Hotel - a marker of the finest service and luxury anywhere in the city, you’d think Hotel de Crillion could err on the extremely traditional side. But it doesn’t. It has all the trappings of 5* service, along with an incredible history, contemporary design, and a sense of warmth designed to bring you in, and lull you into a Parisian state of mind. The hotel has hosted the likes of Marie Antoinette, Neil Armstrong, Karl Lagerfeld, Woodrow Wilson, and Queen Elizabeth. While you sip your champagne, overlooking the twinkling Eiffel Tower - you can feel that you’re in the company of greatness. Vincent and I discuss how Paris has evolved during the pandemic, how to find hidden gems in the city, and special details about the hotel.

The Breguet No. 160 , more commonly known as "The Queen" or "The Marie-Antoinette" may be the world's most beautiful watch. Commissioned for the French Queen in 1783, the watch was so complex that it wasn't completed until 34 years after Marie Antoinette's death. In 1983, a master thief snuck into the L.A. Mayer Institute for Islamic Art and vanished into the night with the world's most incredible time piece.Pete is joined this week by Steven Cohen (@monkeyinheaven) and we play a trailer for the fantastic Bop or Flop podcast.If you're liking the show, please subscribe wherever you get your podcasts.
