Marquise de Sévigné by Robert Nanteuil (Musée Carnavalet)

The Marquise de Sevigne wears a hurluberlu coiffure, probably supported by wire or equivalent arrangement, in this portrait by Robert Nanteuil. 

The Wikipedia article for Robert Nanteuil is here.

This is a classic hurluberlu coiffure. As a widow, she wears an attifet.
