She was born in 1828 and married in 1856 according to Svetabel's posting of 20 August 2007 on forum.alexanderpalace.org/index.php?topic=1559.0. She is best known for her daughter Zinaida. Sources of biographical information about her are here and here.
This casually dressed Tatiana de Ribeaupierre portrait predates crinolines and the previous image. Also, Christina Robertson died in 1852. Her bodice and lace under-garment (or is it a ruffle) have plunging vee necklines that require a chemise below. The satin over-bodice has flaring pelisse-like pleats and tight sleeves, suggesting this could be from as early as the 1840s.
