ca. 1618 Elizabeth Vernon, Countess of Southampton by ? (Bedford Estate - London UK)

From Wikipedia.

Elizabeth wears a fascinating dress of pink satin with lace tape ornaments and a deep, but narrow vee neckline filled in with laceand a scarf that also supports a neck ruff. She also wears an attifet-like lace cap. Her hair spreads to the sides and could even be an early example of a hurluberlu coiffure.
