1833 Carmen Moreno, Marchioness of the Guadalquivir Marshes by ? (Museo del Romanticismo - Madrid, Spain)

The best sketch I can find is here, her sons Olympe and Onésipe were prominent amateur phographers. Olympe photographed his mother at least once (seen here). Alexandro Aguado de las Marismas married Maria de Carmen Victoire Moreno, seen below. He, and presumably she, emigrated to France in 1828. Alexandro was naturalized in France where he was a spectacular success as a banker. He became a socialite and acquired vacation homes. He probably would have enjoyed having a private jet to visit his properties. I don’t know if he would have looked down upon Greece because Greece’s problems extend to his native Spain, now made all the more serious by the prospect of Catalan secession.

Olympe, who married Marie Claire Emilie Mac Donell who was a Lady-in-Waiting to Empress Eugénie, succeeded Alexandro.

Given her history, this luxurious white dress with expanses of sheer white material is probably an example of French style.
