Royal Costumes

King Karl Lights up Versailles

It’s been a long time since Versailles has seen this much glamour. Beginning this week, the French cheateau is the host of Fastes de Cour & Cérémonies Royales (Court Pomp & Royal Ceremony), an exhibition of European Royal costumes from 1650 to 1800. The show is sponsored by Chanel, and will be introduced by Karl Lagerfeld. Will Antoinette-chic be the inspiration for his next collection?
