A STUDY ON COSTUME DESIGN ı Marie Antoinette (2006): costumes by Milena Canonero"At the start of pre-production, Coppola handed Canonero a box of pastel-coloured macaroons from the Ladurée pastry house. “She told me, ‘These are the colours I love’,” recalls Canonero. “I used them as a palette. Sofia was clear about the colouration, but left the rest to me. We squeezed the essence of the period, without reproducing it. Even if you think you know a lot about it,” she argues, “you always have to look for a new angle. I simplified the very heavy look of the 18th century. I wanted it to be believable, but more stylized.”
“Sofia is a bit like me in that she is most interested in the feeling that a costume gives to the audience, so some of our work in Marie Antoinette is symbolic, some of it is stylish and some of it is psychological. There is always a reason for a particular texture or colour. Sofia wanted a richness and a freshness for Marie Antoinette and the clothes need to show her evolution from a very young girl to a sophisticated woman. You see through her dresses how she gains more confidence and even her décolletage becomes more emphasized.” - Milena Canonero

"On the page it looked nothing. The beginning simple, almost comic. Just a pulse - bassoons and basset horns - like a rusty squeezebox. Then suddenly - high above it - an oboe, a single note, hanging there unwavering, till a clarinet took over and sweetened it into a phrase of such delight! This was no composition by a performing monkey! This was a music I’d never heard. Filled with such longing, such unfulfillable longing, it had me trembling. It seemed to me that I was hearing the very voice of God."
