Marie & Madonna
Valentine's Eve marks the DVD release of Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette, which was probably our second or third most beloved film of last year. We're certain it's going to be the best thing to watch upon stumbling into bed after a night of too much pink-canned champagne (and, hint: the movie goes perfectly with a few handfuls of rose petal raspberry macarons, which taste like sugary perfumey heaven). In preparation, we've been peeking at Madonna's Marie-inspired performance from the 1990 MTV Video Awards, where "Vogue" went all 18th century with powdered wigs and floor-sweeping gowns and some very impressive hand-fan choreography. It's a much saucier take on Marie Antoinette than Sofia's - what with all that groping and squeezing and showing off of knickers - but of course we'd expect nothing less of our all-time number-one idol. Seeing the clip now makes us so nostalgic for the Truth or Dare/Blond Ambition era (our favorite Madonna moment), and for a time when MTV actually got us all worked-up in a happy way every now and again. Le grand sigh.
