Luise Friederike, Duchess of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, née Duchess of Württemberg-Stuttgart wearing a Russian order sash and star by Christian Friedrich Reinhold Lisiewski (auctioned)

Christie's auction notes state, "Portrait of Luise Friederike, Duchess of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, née Duchess of Württemberg-Stuttgart (1722-1791), small bust length, wearing a light blue dress with lace chemise and veil, earrings, wig and the sash and the badge of the Russian order of Saint Catherine." I am going to call what Christie's calls a "chemise" a "fichu." Her coiffure is spread out in late 70s or 80s style.
