1890s Daisy, Countess of Warwick in theatrical dress

Countess Daisy didn't wear this to the 1897 Devonshire House Ball; she went there playing Marie Antoinette according to the Victoria and Albert Museum. This costume is more like Cleopatra.

This photo shows the Daisy Greville poses in an attention-getting party costume without a distinct waist seam that still shows off her bust and hips. The sleeves are very widely flared as can be seen to the left.
