Upgrade image posted 28 November 2012 from Wikimedia.

Princess Kochubey wears black - a black crinoline almost completely drenched in her black lace shawl supplemented by black lace engageantes and a short black lace headdress. The Wikimedia page this image comes from has this description, " Winterhalter has depicted her in one of his customary formats, three-quarter length, nearly life-size, and painted against an overcast sky. She wears a black silk gown, black lace, and jewelry, including a necklace of large pearls, a pearl brooch with a large pendant pearl, a flexible, serpentine bracelet, and several rings."
