The dress has a busy small-pattern brocade and a contrasting brocade for the false sleeves and a big basque bodice. The fabric, lace, and jewels are fit for a Queen. She may be wearing a ferroniere with a pendant jewel at her hair line. Her hair is straight and piled up in 1610s style. She should have worn the brocade of her false sleeves as the fabric for most of her dress.
