Dressing as Empress Josephine Bonaparte. See this gorgeous gown, from 1805, exhibited in Madrid in El Museo del Traje (Costume Museum) and dream with that glamorous but controversial time of ball gowns and revolutions.
Yesterday, I was in the Costume Museum in Madrid. Very interesting shows: historical dresses, modern dresses, jewelry, parasols, fans, luxury and elegance.
However, among all the pieces, I love this white gown. Perfect for a princess!
Description: Linen dress with tail. It closes with two bodkins. It is decorated with a marvelous embroidered with gold thread and sequins, which form a wide border with flowers.
