early 1890s (estimated) Sissi wearing an evening gown with vee neckline by ? (location unknown to gogm)

Her dress dates from around 1890 and she had guts for wearing something so revealing.

Her dress is probably sleeveless if the the feathers trimming the neckline are removed. Her neckline has a tape-like edge peeking through the feathered trim. She was famous for her long, luxuriant tresses, but these portraits show that she was wearing short, straight coiffures at the end of her life.
