Elisabetta's dress is scarcely what is often what is thought of as Renaissance dress. It has a simple square neckline with an ornate border decorated with embroidered letters. The rest of her dress is a geometric print in overall subdued colors. Her jewelry is limited to a scorpion-themed ferroniere and simple chain necklaces.
