Marie-Antoinette with Uncolored (!!!) Hair by François Dumond
There’s no date, but I’d say this is late 1770s, especially because she looks so young; it could also be early 1780s (zone fronts were popular in this period). Wasn’t she beautiful? I love her delicately arched eyebrows.
Robe à l’Anglaise | c. 1775
Unfortunately, I don’t know where this is from, but I’m convinced that Michael O’Connor, who designed the costumes for The Duchess, used it as inspiration for the below dress:
Riding coats, Met Museum, c. 1760 and 1775
Polonaise jacket, Imotex collections, 1770s
Polonaise, Museo del Traje, 1775-85
It looks like candy!
“Levite” Open Gown and Hat after Devonshire, 1779
Marie Antoinette by Krantzinger, c. 1771
Riding Habit, V&A, c. 1770-75
I love displays like this! It’s so much more interesting than having the clothing hanging from headless mannequins.
Gorgeous! The red and white striped dress looks like a dress from the Kyoto Costume Institute collection. It all looks like it’s 1770s-1780s
Pet en l’air jacket (c. 1775) and embroidered petticoat (c. 1720), KCI
