Comtesse de Mailly, 1698, wears court fashion: Her mantua has elbow-length cuffed sleeves over the lace-ruffled sleeves of her chemise. The trained skirt is looped back to reveal a petticoat. She wears elbow-length gloves and a cap with a high lace fontange. She has a fur muff on her right wrist, trimmed with a ribbon bow, and carries a fan. She wears the short string of pearls that remained fashionable throughout this period.

Marie Jeanne's bodice is straight from a Beaubrun portrait, but she wears a mantua with the over-skirt draped horizontally to clasps, then diagonally to other clasps, where the skirt falls over the under-skirt to the floor.
