The Blue Dress of Maria di Cosimo

Introduction

I think the best introduction is the portrait itself... Portrait of Maria di Cosimo 1. 1555-1557 Alessandro allori, Historical Art Museum Vienna.

Isn't she beautiful? I usually don't go for the complicated English Elizabethan look, I just don't like it. Most of the times, I fall for Italian or Spanish looks, and often somewhere around 1550-1580. Maybe I should think of changing my SCA persona!
