From eBay; splotches in background removed with Photoshop, sepia tone removed, and image enlarged by half.
Countess Gabrielle's dress has striking bands of contrasting material, probably including lace and ruched bands, that make this photo much more interesting than most photos of the day. Her cap is decorated with ribbon and, possibly, a veil-like extension draped over her right arm.
