1779 Marie Antoinette wearing dark dress with lace bertha by Elisabeth-Louise Vigee-Lebrun

Marie-Antoinette tastefully wears a set of large pearls in her hair and again in her necklace in this 1779 Vigee-Lebrun portrait. The 1780s were characterized by curly and frizzy coiffures like the curly coiffure shown here in a portrait dated to 1779.
