1555 Catherine de Medici attributed to Clouet (Victoria & Albert Museum)

Catherine de Medici wears a black and white dress and a pink and black French hood in this Clouet portrait. This image can be found all over the Web.

She was fond of pearl-reticulated partlets.

This is another example of a double neckline.
