A beautiful doll that lives up to her name Marquise Noemie.

(Cambridge English Dictionary)
DOLL is wearing a beautiful floaty yet LONG SKYBLUE & Mint Blue combination
ornate Dress of three layers of fabrics.
PUFF sleeves are so fashionable and is cinched at the wrists
and then finished off with lace details on the hands.
The body of the skirt is full of WHITE & GLITTERY florals
then accented at the lower part with beautiful ribbons, flowers, and beads.
The hemline of the skirt is exaggerated with lace details
which typifies the FRENCH ARISTOCRACY
at the time with their excesses in terms of fashion and lifestyle in general.
Other FASHION articles on her are her fashionable oversized hat
with flowers & FEATHERS and her matching handbag.
The DOLL is reminiscent of the GRAND & GLORIOUS period of the FRENCH EMPIRE
that probably saw its decline during the time of Marie Antoinette and King Louis XVI.
