Fashions 1829 December
Loretta reports:

The early 19th century La Belle Assemblée aka The Court Magazine has often contributed fashion plates to this blog.  The World of Fashion and Continental Feuilletons, which provided this month's, is another of John Bell’s publications for women. 

Unlike La Belle Assemblée, the World of Fashion offers four sets of fashion plates each month, each containing at least two dresses as well as head wear and coiffures.  This plate, I thought, gives us a wonderful sense of the wild hair/hat concoctions Lord of Scoundrels’ hero found so hilarious.

I don't know about the hair, but I'd love to wear one of those hats!
