1632 Henrietta Maria by Sir Anthonis van Dyck (Royal Collection) REPLACEMENT

The dress in this well-known portrait of her is a classic. The lace collar is familiar to this one. The sleeves are elbow length and puffed over their full length, a feature that would persist until the 1680s. The cuffs are a point of interest. The ribbon around her waist emphasizes her waistline, even though the bodice is more like a jacket.
