Heather Carroll of The Duchess of Devonshire's Gossip Guide to the 18th Century blog posted this image for a vote to approve or not ("Yay or nay). The result was "Poor Anne-Germaine Larrivee; she thought out of the box and it was unsuccessful. Her blue and white disaster earned her a Nay." The dress is just too busy. A commenter, heidenkind, noted "The pearls are just too much. It's a little gaudy for me. Nay!" Her dress with its colorful sash resembles the sheath dresses of the 1780s.
