1783 Equestrian portrait of Marie Antoinette in hunting attire by 1783 Equestrian portrait of Marie Antoinette in hunting attire by Louis Auguste Brun de Versoix (Versailles)

Marie Antoinette is riding in trousers in this Brun de Versoix portrait from 1783, According to fashionismymuse, this was scandalous (click the link to see what a ruckus she faced). She is wearing a large hat with big feathers that must have been routinely lost to the wind. She has an article of clothing tied around her waist the way joggers do now when they take off a jacket when it becomes too warm.
