No too many historical figures can become a symbol for both fashion and pastry goods, but as demonstrated by these Marie Antoinette-themed finds, the Archduchess of Austria's influence reigns on.
Antoinette's illustrious hairstyles have always been regarded as fashionably eccentric. From the 18th century up until the present day, Antoinette's head pieces have been a widely recognizable symbol of glitz and glamor. John Galliano's runways are often filled with models sporting incredibly illustrious hair styles, inspired by the Duchess's head attire.
Of course all those who are familiar with Antoinette's legacy know of the famous "let them eat cake" response to the famine riots. While no proof exists that Antoinette ever uttered those lines, the connection to her name remains strong. French pastries often reference the Queen of France as an inspiration for the royal delicacies.
