Bouguereau portrays Countess Montholon wearing 1840s day dress with a violet waistband forming a double vee in back and extensive ruched trim. The tip of a vee waistline should show in front, but it does not. The sleeves and bodice are cross-hatched with colored thread ending in black bands at the wrist and neckline complementing the black trim of her violet waistband and ribbons.
