1631 Marie de Raet by Anthonis van Dyck (Wallace Collection, London)

Marie de Raet sports two lace collars, big balloon sleeves, and a full skirt in this 1631 van Dyck. Detail-enhanced by gogm.

I don't know whether to call her do curly or frizzy. The hair is built out to the sides in the hurluberlu style. Her bow-shaped brooch appears to made with diamonds. Her dress has hanging sleeves tied off behind the upper arms. Her cuffs are spectacular with a ruffled extension protruding out, to the extent the material can bear its own weight, and a smaller ruff ending the sleeve
