1742 Augusta Princess of Wales by Jean-Baptiste van Loo (Royal Collection)

Court dress can be overwhelming, but the dress in this 1742 van Loo portrait of Princess Augusta is very flattering to her. Her velvet-and-fur over-skirt matches the train worn on her shoulders. The robe-like over-skirt contributes a fur stomacher to her dress.
