1918 Queen Victoria Eugenia wearing Turquoise Parure and Worth Gown

Ena's Worth dress has a tight fur-trimmed skirt and trails a fur-trimmed train in this photo. Her bodice may have a vee-shaped set of revers meeting below her pendant. Ena wears a hobble skirt and her bodice has curved panels for decoration much as in her engagement photo.

World War I was culturally earth-shattering and nobody was going to return to the Belle Époque, except Chez Worth. This is why Chez Worth fell out of fashion.
