Claire Avery shows a head-to-toe look inspired by the style of Marie Antoinette in this illustration, which appeared in the July 1, 1925, Vogue. Her bustled, multitiered skirt and off-the-shoulder embellished collar are made more pronounced by the fitted bodice. A ribboned, flower-trimmed hat sits atop her masterful coiffure. The way the woman turns away from the artist's perspective undermines the over-the-top nature of her gown, lending the work an air of quiet civility.
