As promised, Madame Ornata’s lovely, gorgeous, sublime pet en l’aire. With lovely, gorgeous, sublime pictures by Sarah (aka Diana Villiers) ’cause the ones I took on this photoshoot weren’t nearly as good!
Don’t you love the colours? And the hat?
The hat sure is something isn’t it? That veiling goes past her waist!
And look at the beautiful detailing on her stomacher! She made the silk roses herself (mad handsewer) and the ruffle is real metal silk.
Clearly, Madame O’s stays are doing a good job 😉
Every proper 18th century photoshoot should involve a session on the swing! The rubber matting isn’t exactly historical, but her joy sure makes up for it!
Standing on the pier at Bath perhaps? The Georgians did like the seaside!
More seaside fun
Some very improper behavior for an 18th century lady!
