1898 Baroness de Geer From www.liveinternet.ru:users:arin levindor:post113079788: 2

Baroness de Geer's dress has particularly wide shoulders, almost as if she was wearing an American footballer's shoulder pads or the costume from a Flash Gordon or super hero movie. The A-line skirt was definitely in style. This is how it was described in the original Victoria and Albert Museum e-exhibit, "Court dress: "Presentation gown of rich white satin, the corsage and petticoat embroidered in pearls and brilliants, and trimmed with soft chiffon ruchings. Train of brocade of graceful design arranged from one shoulder, and trimmed with white accordion-pleated tulle and lilies of the valley" (see: Lady's Pictorial, 5 March 1898, p 312c)."
