duchess of portland

Another image I have adored since I got a library card. I have the collated version of the book this was in, but this doesn’t appear in it. This is from the Visual History series of costume books.

Basically she just has this incredible gown and expression of total confidence that she absolutely nails it.

Clearly she had a thing for this collar as she wears another it in a portrait by Sargent! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Winifred_Cavendish-Bentinck,_Duchess_of_Portland
