Stéphanie with Gräfin Tarouca, Resi Pálffy, Sidonie Chotek, and Graf Charly Bombelles on the stairs of Miramare

The Ladies are dressed in second bustle period clothes and tight floral(?) hats; the Lady behind Stéphanie wears a cuirasse bodice turned to tablier. Stéphanie's bodice ends in a series of swirls draped across the top half of her skirt.
