Dior To Fund Restoration Of Marie Antionette's Pretend Milkmaid Cottage
"The fashion house Dior is to sponsor the restoration of the Queen's House in Versailles. ... The house was Marie Antoinette's rustic hideaway, where Louis XVI's queen played out a fantasy life as a simple milkmaid until the revolution of 1789 imposed a sterner reality. The house was abandoned after the revolution." The Art Newspaper 11/14/13
