Polyxena of Hesse-Rotenburg, Queen consort of Sardinia by Martin van Meytens (location unknown to gogm)


From Wikimedia.

Polissena's dress in this portrait reflects French court fashion with seemingly square neckline, vee waistline, fancy engageantes, and wide panniers. Her revers come up over an off shoulder scoop neckline as straps going up and over her shoulders.
