As brilliant as Venus, the beautiful Dorine busies herself with what she read in a letter dictated by the keenest love; her gown is à la Marlborough, and her hat is à la Charlotte. (1785)
"A yellow straw hat, lined with white taffeta with a pleated chemise of blue Florentine taffeta on the crown, two steel buckles on the taffeta, said hat held up at the side by a similar buckle: a panache of three plumes which were furnished ... 60 livres."
