From Wikimedia. The caption for this image in her Wikipedia article estimates she was in her mid 20s when this portrait was done. She was born in 1542.

Eleonora de Medici's under-sleeves are slashed many times in this Allori portrait showing a vest bodice held by gold buttons and loops. She may be wearing full or even puffed under-sleeves.
