1800 Grand Princess Alexandra Pavlovna of Russia, Archduchess of Austria and Palatina of Hungary, in Hungarian dress by ? (location ?)

According to her Wikipedia article, she was the only Grand Princess of Russia to marry a Habsburg and become an Archduchess of Austria.

Her father died in 1801 so that date may be more appropriate, if the black signifies mourning dress.

This dress combines the lavish use of lace and exuberantly curly coiffures of the ancien regime and what appears to be the new silhouette.
