▪️Maria Laczinska, comtesse Walewska (1786-1817), François Baron Gérard, 1810, Musée de l'Armée, Paris▪️

▪️Lorsque le Baron Gérard exécute en 1810 ce portrait de la comtesse Walewska, Marie Laczinska, cette dernière est âgée de 23 ans et se trouve être l’une des maîtresses de l’Empereur depuis trois ans. Elle est déjà mère – ou en passe de le devenir – d’un enfant de Napoléon Ier : Alexandre, comte Walewski, né le 4 mai 1810.▪️

▪️Ball gown, Jacques Doucet (French, 1853 - 1929), Circa 1890, Paris, Silk velvet and silk satin, The Mint Museum▪️

▪️Jacques Doucet rivaled Charles Frederick Worth as one of the top international couturiers of the late 19th century. In the early 1870s Doucet established his maison de couture (couture fashion house). Rich clients from around the world eagerly flocked to Paris to shop for one-of-a-kind fashions.▪️

▪️This gown comprises a separate bodice and skirt and is a marvel of complex construction. The bodice alone, is composed of 48 separate pattern pieces, with a comparable number comprising the inner lining elements. Multiple pattern pieces also create the chevron design of the skirt.▪️
