Marie Antoinette and portraits of beautifully clothed women circa late 1700's

Wait till you see what I have for you today!!
It has been a very successful hunt for images the last few days. My computer is going to burst or just continue to slow down. There are so many beautiful pictures that I can't help it. Fine art paintings from late 1700's to 1800's. mostly. The theme is;
incredible clothing
 beautiful women,
beautifully painted
  Marie Antoinette in an unbelievable crazy fancy dress.
A little some thing for anyone who sews historic costumes.
Be sure and right click to bring up a larger version.
I love this one. She is so pretty and her outfit is scrumptious.

Not really sure what is going on. Pigeons in the house?The chair? But the dress is perfect.

There goes the clothing allowance!  No wonder a lady always had a fan. This must be so hot to wear. All the material in the dress and all the under garments must be heavy. 

I was drawn to this one by the color and opulent setting.
A few more.

Glad you stopped by. Love, Louise
