Wow , and to Marija, I am speechless at the beauty of these portraits. I love to look at them. and am particularly moved by the realism of Sir Joshua Reynolds. I love the outfit of the young man in black and silver, now that is couture! I also agree with Comte, the 2nd one is you.

I do so love the second picture - the pastel blue is très joli!

I like that Comte, Beauty, fashion, and fabric used as wepons, It's really all they had to show intelectual advancement. Their extreme decorations. the horror Vacui. (fear of an empty space) and now when we have machines to sew with, and to manufacture items with more ease, they are all the more simple in design as well. They sewed these dresses by hand, carved the statues, applied the plaster decorations on the walls by hand. Well, it is almost mind boggling what they did by hand back then. Craftsman ship was their tecnology, and all was so extrordinarily elaborate.
And you are welcome Marija, but I swear, It really does look like a portrait of you.

Yes… I don’t like it either.
Back than men could say – corsets, outrages wigs, powder, rouge, fake moles…
I would say that we are not so different after all, only the technique we are using. :lol:

Which image are you referring to Versailles? I like the lady with her dog. I love dogs. It's rather sad, because I'm away and I miss my twits, yes they are idiots but they're my idiots.

I wish it would be acceptable to society to wear 18th century dresses. They flatter everyone!
