OH, ROCOCO! FLIRTY stylings of the 18th century

Mile-high pastel wigs? Risqué paintings? Color color everywhere? Oh yeah, this can be nothing other than Rococo - the opulent candy colored era which splashed into visual culture during the 18th century. It's totally wild, whimsical, and ultra extravagant. Think Sophia Coppola's hedonistic Marie Antoinette or Louis XV's uber-fashionable mistress Madame de Pompadour. Colors are powdery and bright, lines curvaceous, and the subject matter seriously sensual. Love it or hate it, inspiration easily lingers within these super playful hues, cheeky scenes, and delicate stylings.
