Lady Hester Pitt (1755-1780) Stanhope by ? (location unknown to gogm)

From Their image was slightly out-of-focus or otherwise blurred so I added sharpness and changed other settings to bring out available detail.

Lady Hester wears an earlier 1770s coiffure, characterized by sub-astronomical heights while still elaborate and, as in her case, jeweled with swagged perals. Her neckline is filled in with a fichu while the neckline of her bodice is trimmed with a thin band of ruching.
