1790s Maria Feodorovna by Jean-Louis Voille (Kaluga Regional Art Museum, Kaluga Russia)

Maria Feodorovna's traiangular 'do is like the one worn by the colleague of the American comic strip hero Dilbert in this Voille portrait.

This image was heavily modified to show the gap from the left sleeve and bodice blacked out in the Internet original.

A belt is discernible at Maria Feodorovna's waist.
