The white dress is not original, it was made by a woman who does very good reproductions. It is lovely though.

Not dresses but still… I love these suits, I would love to appear somewhere looking like that! (no, I don’t have any problem with my identity *as far as I know :wink: )

You can wear similar nowadays, I think, just look for some of new coat or costume creations at great fashion shows! Me, I'd like to wear coats alike men wore centuries ago, a bit coverted. Especially at the end of 18th and in the beginning of the 19th century. They're so cute.

I love the formal appearance of these suits. I adore coats, simple wigs, white stockings… My friends can’t understand how I find it sexy. Just imagine all this plus that nice French accent (French R)! :love: I would definitely like to dress like that! That reminded me on Casanova and his love interest (woman that was pretending to be a man)… :angel12:

I only don’t like that belt.

Oh, I love all these three pictures. Thanks.

The first is dear for me... I prefer Dior, maybe because its perfume "J'adore" is my favorite fragrance. This dress is delightful, I think the belt suits well.

Beautiful cutting! The second is my dream :biggrin: Nice patterns.

The third is also lovely. Flower pattern is my passion!

With a belt or without, it is gorgeous and extraordinary.

Neither did Mme de Pompadour, but it didn't keep her from acting in male garb:
Quote:
The next day - Mardi Gras - the latter piece was put on again, followed by 'les Amours de Ragonde’, words by Nericault-Destouches, music by Mouret, which "was learned, staged and rehearsed in forty-eight hours." The king skipped a carnival celebration at la Muette to see the latter - which featured
Pompadour in drag, as Colin, a shepherd. Said the duke de Luynes: "Mme. de Pompadour was dressed as a man, but as women are when they go horseback riding; it was a very decent outfit."

See also Mira Sorvino in "The Triumph of Love" (where she outshines even Ben Kingsley - no mean feat) and is equally seductive as a man and as a woman.

Here is one version of the 18th century wedding gown. I was so enthusiastic about it but now I am not so sure… :|

It is beautiful but I don’t know how I would look and how I would feel wearing it.

It must be so heavy. Poor bride, probably she squirmed in it. However, it is wonderful!
