The Lady-In-Waiting to the Queen, 1776-1777

Not on Viewexpand_more

Wearing the obligatory dress of the day-with restrictive stays that narrow the waist and an impossibly wide-hooped skirt which heightens the hips-this stylish lady-in-waiting would undoubtedly have had to side-step through doorways, like the one shown behind her, in order to walk through them. She stands before a group of attending figures like a ballerina; her graceful comportment a clear sign in the period of her aristocratic upbringing.
