It's no secret that I love this dress. I've blogged about it in Fabulous Fashion and I've worn the virtual version in Second Life, so you can imagine my delight to find this paper version looking out at me from the pages of Victoria Magazine.
Marquise de Pompadour 1756
That's correct, it's a paper re-creation of the dress worn by Madame de Pompadour in the painting by François Boucher! Talk about fabulous!!
The artist behind this stunning piece of ephemera is Isabelle de Borchgrave and she didn't stop at the Pompadour but continues to create whole collections of couture inspired by famous paintings, grand couturiers and museum costumes.
