To commemorate the Les Miserables release in theaters, these French fashion photo shoots are perfect for getting in a revolutionary mood before the film.

The French Revolution stands as one of the most monumental moments in history and came to be the inspiration for the iconic novel, musical and now feature film. Each one of the photo spreads you'll see here draws direct influence from historical French fashions or landmarks including extravagant dresses and landmarks like the Palace of Versailles. The ornate detail and excessive nature of each shoot helps to further satirize French history, which in turn creates a stronger connection to the clothing featured. Additionally, the stark color scheme used throughout foreshadows the impending revolution and makes each one part of a perfect pre-emptive collection to celebrate the Les Miserable theatrical release.
