Or an actress maybe because that is literally right next to if not extremely close to the Comédie Française if I am correct. I was in Paris last year and I remember that it was close to Palais Royale. That's probably a stretch but a possibility.

You may be right, I'm not sure. I thought the Comédie Française changed locations either during or shortly after the revolution.

The Comedie moved in 1799 (which is why you now have a street of the "Ancienne Comedie"). The Palais Royal's connection with prostitution however long predates that.

In the nineteenth century, saying "the rue de Richelieu" (which goes right by the Palais Royal) was shorthand for both the Academie Francaise and the National Library, which was at the other end. It was actually a very fashionable street in the early nineteenth century (among other things, it's where the croissant arrived from Austria.)

I love the fashion of the 18th century. It is very elegant and the clothes look well thought of and well made.

I must agree with everyone here. The dress and style of the period definitely told a lot and I can't help but be envious! Out of all the period gowns I have seen, this one has to be my favorite!

Mine too! Late 18th century robe à l'anglaise, favoured by the Queen!
