We all have a vision of Marie Antoinette: the ill-fated child princess was known for her fabulous, opulent wardrobe as much as she was for her vivacious personality, legendary extravagance, and the famous phrase "let them eat cake." Sure, she had some haters; but what royal figure doesn't? Today marks Marie Antoinette's birthday, and she's not only an infamous historical figure, but also an unforgettable style icon. We're feeling a little inspired by her fashionable opulence: think decadent ruffled lace, exaggerated silhouettes, ribbon, and gorgeous jewels. With a look at Kirsten Dunst's role in Sofia Coppola's stylish flick Marie Antoinette and Alexander McQueen's Fall 2011 collection as a modern starting point, we're getting into the romance of a bygone age.
Clockwise, from left: Alexander McQueen Fall 2011 runway, Kirsten Dunst in Marie Antoinette, Junya Watanabe Archive Rose jacket ($2,599, originally $3,712), Vivienne Westwood dress ($638), portrait of Marie Antoinette, Lanvin necklace ($465), Elle Macpherson Fly Butterfly Fly Torsolette ($78), Giambattista Valli Puff Skirt ($1,590), Giuseppe Zanotti Crystal-Embellished Ballerina Flats ($650)

Sarah Jessica Parker headed Down Under for the premiere of I Don't Know How She Does It in Melbourne, Australia. The trendsetting actress chose a pretty, metallic purple Prabal Gurung dress for the event, which she paired with black accessories. Watch to see why we love this look! On Allison: StyleMint top, Lia Sophia ring.
Reese Witherspoon donned a black sweater and dark skinnies while running errands in LA. The stylish star paired her classic basics with black suede booties, Ray Ban wayfarers, and simple gold hoops. We are loving her trés chic two-tone Celine bag and tribal necklace. Get Reese's exact shades with other complementing items here.
Kate Middleton looked ravishing in a red LK Bennett coat and brown suede boots while distributing emergency food and medical supplies with UNICEF in East Africa. She cinched her toned figure with a wide Reiss belt and toted a leather clutch. Since the Dutchess's ensemble was covered by her coat, we chose a navy cashmere sweater dress to complete her ensemble.
