1672 Élisabeth (Isabelle) d'Orléans, Duchess of Guise with her son by Pierre Mignard (Château de Blois - Blois,  Loir-et-Cher département France)

This was not an era of women's freedom judging by the title - daughter of this man and wife of that one.

Duchess Élisabeth Marguerite wears a brocade dress in seeming déshabillé with the chemise spilling out of her bodice in this Mignard portrait. Her sleeves are not the same color as the rest of her dress. Her hair is built out to the back, not to the sides as in hurluberlu style. The "fripon" curls above each eye were very stylish around 1700.
