Post Re: Rose Bertin
I found this other photo that I think is supposed to be her, at least from what I could understand of the page. It seems to talk about her escaping the guillotine.

ok, I don't know why, but when I repost the link, it shows an inactive page. But if you click on the link right above the photo it will take you there. :) I can make out a few words, just that she escaped the guillotine, she was a designer and designed for Marie Antoinette. I think that her birth and death year are listed as well. I can't make it all out though.
The nose definitely seems different from the other pics, maybe the painter took artistic liberties? :? Hope that helped some :)

she was the grand mogul, and was a great designer.
being a designer doesnt mean you need to be gorgeous, just look at donnatella versace.

Yes Rose is a fascinating figure , often refered to as the founder
of " haute couture " in France
( or anywhere else come to think of it )

She became " French Miliner and Modiste" to the young Queen Marie Antoinette and supplied the Queen's extravagent wardrobe from 1772 right up to her dethronement in 1792.
The young Marie A became fascinated with clothes and fashion and of course, all of the Parisian ladies followed her lead, Marie was the leader of French fashion.
The young, attractive Marie A. was also living in a marriage without sex
for much of the 1970s so this, and other frustrations probably fuelled
her extravagance and spending on fashion and expensive jewellry.

And Rose, with her two visits to Versailles each week was at the very centre of high society and must have been quite intimate with the Queen and heard a lot of court gossip.
Rose must have been a very bright young lady, she was probably earning a fortune in those days too !
( Pity she did nt write her memoirs )

I read that she died in poverty in London,
(but then wikedpaedia
says that she died in her house in Epinay sur Seine ! )

Rose was amazing. I read somewhere that she considered moving into versailles.

yes I suppose they could both be portraits of Rose
one in her mid 20s and the other in her late 40s

She must have been around age 25 when she began dressing Marie Antoinette
and Marie age 17
(Rose was 8 years older than Marie )

Rose must have been a dynamic lady, to open her own shop
by her early 20s and then to secure the patronage of the most
glamorous young Royal in Europe... soon to be Queen of France !
What an opportunity ... and Rose seized it with both hands !
