I'll always have a soft spot for Roccoco fashions. It was really the first time in history that "fashion" existed as a concept. Clothes became more than just what you wore and what social status you lived in. It was about enjoying the frivolity of beauty, the pursuit of glamour, decadence and sex appeal.....as long as you were a member of the bourgeois or nobility, anyway.

It's amazing to see these clothes in person. I saw some panniered court dresses and robes a la polonaise at an FIT exhibit a few years ago and the clothes are absolutely tiny. It's amazing how much the average size for an adult has changed in the two centuries since then.

For anyone who loves this era, Stephen Frears' Dangerous Liaisons is a must see. The opening credits are fantastic. Sophia Coppola's Marie Antoinette is worth watching too.

Instead of the 1980's, I say designers should revive the 1780's

From Sophia, it is indeed a splendid book. Perhaps the best book on history of fashion I have ever seen. I would scan those pictures myself had I got a scanner.

Spike, Rococo is indeed an interesting era in many ways - not only fashion became Fashion, but European dressmakers also got interested in everything Asian. And indeed, they were so tiny! I remember seeing a Rococo shoe at V&A and first thought it was small child's, turns out it was a woman's.

As for the film list, I would like to add Stanley Kubrick's Barry Lyndon, and if one is into comedy, Blackadder Series III. Despite being comedy, the show had access to the costume archives of BBC. I especially enjoy the wardrobe of the Prince Regent (played by Hugh Laurie).

Here's the famous Dangerous Liaisons opening bit:

Sprigged, thanks for the beautiful pictures! PS. "If it ain't Baroque, fix it" - I take it you are a Baroque fan too, then? I have been wondering if there should also be a Baroque thread here at TFS...
