1705 Marie d'Orleans-Longueville, Duchess de Nemours by Hyacinthe Rigaud (Musée des beaux-arts Lausanne)

Her Wikipedia article is here.

Duchess Marie wears a reduced Fontanges headdress under her scarf that covers her lace bertha and a partlet-like section reaching to her neckline. Her chemise is probably providing her under-sleeves and engagegantes.
