1555 Catherine de Medici by François Clouet A black and white drawing by François Clouet of Catherine de Medici. She made high heels a fashion item when she wore them to court. When women saw how she swayed, they had to follow her lead. It looks like she is wearing something like a button-up blouse under a jacket.
