Diane di Portiers ~  Mistress of Henri II. She is wearing French fashions from the 1530's. The French sleeves still have a fir-trim but now are attached to 'slashed' sleeves as opposed to covering a thin sleeve, as still worn in England. The skirts also have a round, wide shape. Diane wears the common headwear of the time, a 'French Hood'.
