Yes, I also think curvaceous os the right word :wink: (apart from her first years at Versailles, when she was not yet completely developed and was very thin).
That portrait was made three years after the Necklace Affair, in 1788. Here is a brief description:

I'm afraid not, dear....it is a rather idealized Kucharski portrait after a Elisabeth Vigée Le Brun. Probably around 1785-ish.

Really ? I was certain it was an original painting of Vigée Lebrun. I don't really like this one either ( :oops: ), of course it is flattering, but the queen's features are barely recognizable : you can hardly make out the austrian lip, without mentioning the aquiline nose and her high forehead ... That's said, her beautiful white complexion is well enhanced.

Nice pics, but you're right, a bit strange. She has not really that MA-looks :?

Yes, I didn't even think it was her!
