Young Christine de France by Giovanna Garzoni (location unknown to gogm)

This portrait of Christine de France (or is it Élisabeth?) shows a lace ruff and an impressive jeweled and feathered headdress. The Wikipedia article for Giovanna Garzoni is here.

This shows the tabbed sleeves, ruff, in this case double or triple, and jeweled headdress of the era. Her gown appears to be black with silver thread with balck jewels on the sleeve and bodice plus a black brooch.
