Fashion or Flop? Lady Morton

Here we see Ann Wortley, Lady Morton wearing a burnt orange silk gown. It is accented with orange lace embroidery, and white lace cuffs and frill. The Lady's hair and accent frill and jewels are very reminiscent of the late Queen Elizabeth. Her dress is scandalously short, revealing a wee bit of her delicate slipper.

What think ye? Did the Jacobeans continue in fashion, or flop?

*Note: This is one of two "Fashion or Flops?" this week. I am also posting about Jacobean fashion later this week! Stay tuned.
