1904 Morin-Blossier court dress with covered shoulder bodice (Metropolitan Museum of Art - New York City, New York, USA)

This ensemble, actually three dresses in one, is not on display as of the date this and the next three images were posted. This is actually an ensemble with two bodices as well as an attachable long train. Pinterest sites attribute the fantastic embroidery to the wives of the ruling Princes of India. This shows how elites will kowtow to outside powers in order to keep their power over their subject populations.

The dress with a bodice featuring bare-shoulder sleeves is here; the attachable train is shown here; and the gorgeous embroidery is here.
