1735 Henrietta, née Godolphin, wife of Thomas Pelham-Holles, Duke of New Castle Upon Tyne and first Duke of Newcastle Under Tyne and Prime Minister by Charles Jervas (auctioned by Sotheby's)

This Henrietta Godolphin was the daughter of Henrietta Godolphin, née Churchill, who was the second Duchess of Marlborough. This Henrietta Godolphin married Thomas Pelham-Holles. Her Wikipedia article is here.

From Wikipedia.

Lady Henrietta's dress has three layers - a white chemise, a blue under-layer, and a white satin surface layer with attention paid to discretely showing the blue satin layer. The resemblance of Lady Henrietta's dress with those worn by the Blounts is uncanny.
