Lauren, when was that painting made? Her clothing looks Triannon-influenced, which would be ironic wouldn't it? But then again that's how it goes in the 18th c french fashion world, isn't it. You can bash the fashion but you will succumb to it in the end a la devil wears prada.

1782, she was 18! yes fashion is funny :o)

Heather Carroll said...

18! Wait, is she one of the mesdames?

I thought Mme Elisabeth was Louis XVI's sister?

Heather Carroll said...

Oh that must be her! I'm mixing my royal French sisters up!

Lo said...

Yes, she is the youngest sister of Louis XVI!

It wouldn't be weird that she is wearing Triannon-influenced clothing because she and Marie Antoinette had always been good friends.
