1713 Princess Maria Josepha Sobieska, née Countess Wessolowska by Ádám Mányoki (Magyar Nemzeti Galéria, Budapest)

Its 1713 and  France may be the fashion superpower, but this Polish aristocrat, Maria Josepha Sobieska, shows where fashion is going. With a different coiffure, this dress would have worked if worn by the Marquise de Pompadour.
