Two vintage illustrations of court dress under Louis XV and Louis XVI

These vintage illustrations come from Mesdames Nos Aïeules by A. Robida, a costume anthology which explores the history of French women's fashion from the 15th century until the tail-end of the 19th century. These particular illustrations depict court fashion during the height of the reigns of Louis XV and his grandson, Louis XVI.
