The latest Lindsay Wixson editorial, photographed by Karl Lagerfeld for Harper Bazaar's April issue, has the model indulging in some 18th-century dress up. Fashion editor Amanda Harlech styled Wixson as a modern-day Antoinette, dressing her in baroque gowns, voluminous ruffles and illustrious head pieces.

Make-up artist Lloyd Simmonds really channeled the former Queen of France, opting for a snowy-white complexion punctuated with a dramatic, rosy blush. Meanwhile, hair stylist Eammon Hughes provided Wixson with a super-teased, sky high 'do.

The soft, pale lighting and props (such as the harp Wixson languidly leans on in one shot), contribute an ethereal quality to the shoot; in fact, it's almost as if Wixson is playing the ghost of the beheaded queen. Either way, her Marie Antoinette impression gives Kirsten Dunst's -- who played her in Sofia Coppola's quasi-historical film -- a run for her money.
