Holy YAY with a Capital Y, Batman! I love this dress. I wish the picture was bigger...
Yay for the exotic lady!
I'm sort of waiting for my husband's relative Yul Brynner to show up off to the right. Just saying. But, even without him, OK ~ Yay.
I'd wear that out today, Yay!
Yay! I love the switch to something more Regency, and I know the ladies were greatly inspired by the Middle East in particular to ther headwear.
I will have to say nay! That gold draping is just ridiculous. From the bosom down, the poor woman looks like a narrow window...
She was a hundred years ahead of her time in fashion! This version of her in Persian dress is more attractive than others I've seen. Yay!
Gorgeous though I'm no fan of turbans of any kind, but the dress more than makes up for it.YAY!
I say a big Yay! to a lovely author and playwright. Didn't she learn about vaccination for smallpox during her travels?
Yay! Lady Mary did indeed learn about inoculation for small pox and brought her knowledge back to England. Note that Lady Mary's letters include some of the first full descriptions of fashion.
Yay! I love it. Pure, unadulterated YAY!
Without a doubt a Yay! Delightful. I am going to do my best to find my own! Dislike the feeling of envy, though it is deserved. D.S.
YAY!!!!!! I love the draping, it's not across any areas that would be unflattering. I also like the trim on the overcoat. Big YAY!
Okay, i'm a little iffy about this one but, i've got to say yay. I love the detail :)
Big Yay! Very flattering to her already excellent figure. Ornate, without being garish.
Yay to the clothing, very delightful, the lighting on it is lovely. Nay to the painting, the figures get lost & look small in all that space. I understand the focus is supposed to be on the pair, but the background does seem to be a tad drab & more muddy than it should, I don't know if that's the artist or that the painting needs to be cleaned. Also, neither person looks very pleased, the woman looks a little cross to me.
I love it, but like others' mentioned, this looks like it dropped out of the Regency period, with the tight fit and lack of hoops, etc. I could even see a bit of an empire waist...
very elegant :-) yay:-) of courseasperia
