I have always found myself drawn to this beautiful image of a woman bedecked in her finest gown. Every time I look at it I study all of the detailing on that gorgeous dress and wonder how long it took for her to bind herself into all of the undergarments. Did she require assistance? Imagine what a relief it must have been to be released from all of that clothing in the evenings. This is my entry for this week's gothic arch challenge with the theme of "Haute Couture".
