I recently read in a book about hairstyles through history how the coiffure à l'enfant came to be. It is said that after giving birth to her first child M-A unfortunately lost her hair (???) so Leonard compose for her this very simple yet very elegant hairstyle. I find this little anecdote quite touching since ''enfant'' basically means child. Although I am quite curious about this story. Has anyone heard of it? I never knew M-A lost her hair after giving birth I would be very grateful for more info!
On this version of the painting ''portrait à la rose'' she is wearing the ''coiffure à l'enfant''

Yes Baronne, I also read about this story. As many women after childbirth, Marie Antoinette lost some of her hair and Leonard found out a simple and short (I guess, for the time) hairstyle. I didn't really know how it looked like, but I think it became fashionable in those years. So is MA wearing that haistyle in the picture with the rose?
