Fashion Icon: Vigee Le Brun


Vigee Le Brun is known as the most important female painter of the 18th century, and best friend to Marie Antoinette herself. She didn't conform with the overly decorated, cake looking trends of the times so rather than focusing on her paintings, I just love the look of her! To me, she represents what an 18th century eccentric (dare I say hipster?) would have looked like, with her loose gown and floral, feathered hat.
