We need to be elegant..

Let's talk the 18th Century. For one thing, I love the clothing back in that time,very elegant, classy, and gorgeous. Even the men dressed amazing, in their velvet coats, and top hats. Here are three movies that take place in that time. Pride and Prejudice is a favorite of mine. The men in this movie are so handsome, and the way they are dressed.. yum! (I like a nice man in some sandy jeans, and white t-shirt, with boots.. but you can't beat the Velvet Jackets, and Chiffon Shirts, with Beige Tights, and Knee High Boots). The women in the film were just as gorgeous, but nothing to far-out like the wardrobe in the film Marie Antoinette. Now those are some gorgeous gowns! And that hair, .. trying doing that everyday! Even if it's a wig, could you imagine holding that up on your head all day while you were working. I love how in that film everyone was dressed in elegance. The one film I haven't seen yet is Young Victoria, but I'm dying to see her wardrobe, along with her man's. All the gowns look stunning! I must go rent it today! But the one film that beats all these films is Ever After.. it was the first 18th century film I fell in love with, the clothes, the 'man', the castle, the scenery. I loved it all! I just really adore that time. I know it was hard, but I think it was worth it. That's when you really knew how to dress, and fall in love.. ah.. now there is no more romance.. 
 Whats your favorite film set back in that time?

Funny that you have pics of Marie Antoinette because it is one of my favorite movies. The clothing is like drugs for your eyeballs. Gorgeous. I pretty much like any period piece, especially PBS Masterpiece theater. Swoon.

I am so with you on this :) I love everything about that time period. Wouldn't it be fun to go back for just a bit? heck I say we bring back that fashion!

I love this time too! I haven't seen P&P yet (I know, I'm horrible) but Young Victoria was incredible, one of my faves! It's on NetFlix too!

Ahh I absolutely LOVE Pride and Prejudice! That movie is my FAVORITE. Such beautiful wardrobes and locations. My other favorite movie set back in that time would probably be Sense and Sensibility, but P&P is definitely a lot prettier.

Kristine. Or Polly.

oh gosh, how do you chose! I actually really love all of these movies. my last semester of college, while working on my senior project I would play Pride and Prejudice over and over again. when I'm not too sure what I want to watch I go to one of these movies. Ever After especially!

does Vanity Fair, with Reese Witherspoon fall into the 18th Century style films? if it does, I would add that one to my list too.
