Empress Eugénie by Claude Marie Dubufe (Musée Municipal, Trouville)

Dress can be timeless, as this Dubufe portrait of Empress Eugénie shows, but the lack of a cage crinoline suggests the early 1850s.

An article about Claude Marie Dubufe is here.

Her dress has a stomacher and the waistline has a very shallow vee, essentially a natural waistline.
