The bodice in one of the Toulmouche paintings I used as an inspiration to make my natural form ball gown looked very similar to one Lillie Langtry was photographed wearing in mid 1880's. She looked so stunning in those photos that I wanted to try to replicate that with my gown when I was figuring out the details on how to trim the bodice. And, as she was the obvious inspiration to my dress, I always wanted to try to pose in that dress like she did. I could never look as perfect as she did. This is as close as I could get. But it was a fun experiment.
