1730 Marquise de Gueydan as Flora by Nicolas de Largillière (Musée Granee - Aix-en-Provence France)

The Marquise de Gueydan's dress in this 1730 de Largillière portrait looks like turn of the 21st century wedding gowns with corset-like outsides. Her frilly chemise emerges from a corset-like half-bodice with a jeweled girdle and a jeweled upper waistline.
