~ The very famous duchess of Devonshire, Georgiana Cavendish ~

Georgiana Cavendish, Duchess of Devonshire (1757–1806) was an English socialite, style icon, author, and activist. Of noble birth from the Spencer family, married into the Cavendish family, she was the first wife of William Cavendish, 5th Duke of Devonshire, and the mother of the 6th Duke of Devonshire.

As the Duchess of Devonshire, she garnered much attention and fame in society during her lifetime. With a preeminent position in the peerage of England, the duchess was famous for her beauty, charisma, and leading fashion and style; political campaigning; emotionally and psychologically conflicting marital arrangements and love affairs; and socializing and gambling.

The duchess enjoyed preeminence in society and was a high emblem of the era. Her keen sense made her the extravagant female leader in fashion and style in England. Using her influence as a leading socialite and fashion/style icon, she contributed to politics, science, and literature. As part of her illustrious social engagements, she would gather around her a large salon of literary and political figures. Among her major acquaintances were the most influential figures of her time including the Prince of Wales (later King George IV); Marie Antoinette of France and her favorite in court, the Duchess of Polignac; Charles Grey (later Earl Grey and British Prime Minister); and Lady Melbourne (lover of the Prince of Wales). Newspapers chronicled her every appearance and activity.

In her life, the duchess was an avid writer and composed a number of works, of both prose and poetry, of which some were published.

She was the great-great-great-grand-aunt of Diana, Princess of Wales. Their lives, centuries apart, have been compared in tragedy in contemporary time.

#lettering for today... I have been really into #perioddramas as of late as well as the intriguing life of #GeorgianaCavendish the #duchessofdevonshire...this quote comes from the 2008 film starring #kieraknightley... #brushlettering #handlettering #moderncalligraphy #lotusblossomletters #janedavenportmermaidmarkers #chatsworthhouse #beingcreative #wordsareart

Since I haven’t actually shared much fashion content the last few days, here’s a second entry for #georgianjanuary theme “Dark.” I need to make a huge 18th Century. “Gainsborough hat”- the big black picture hat like worn here by Georgiana, the Duchess of Devonshire. Painting by Thomas Gainsborough, 1783.

Today's theme of #GeorgianJanuary is #Sky, which is a perfect time to post Maria Cosway's incredible work "Girl Dancing by the Sea." The moon and clouds are a perfect night sky backdrop. It also has #earth in the backdrop since I was too busy to post anything yesterday 😂. ➡️Maria Cosway was a painter from Italy, in the same social circles as #GeorgianaCavendish and #AngelicaSchuylerChurch with whom she was #bffs. It's widely believed she was the first person in England to see Napoleon's face when she commissioned a portrait of him. But people always ignore her amazing life 😩! .

Let’s talk about tassels! Have you ever looked in your closet and thought to yourself, “how can I make my clothing look more like curtains?” Well, 18th centuries ladies did, and their solution to this problem (other than using the same silks for both!) was to incorporate tassels into their gowns. And of course, if you were Queen Marie Antoinette, you had to have the biggest looks-like-curtains gown, with the biggest golden tassels of all.

Tassels have actually been used in clothing for thousands of years - they are mentioned in the Bible, and have been found on necklaces in Egyptian tombs. But tassels really reached their full height in France, where they were made by “Passementiers,” who formed a tassel and trim making guild during the 1500s. It took 7 years to master the craft of trim and tassel making, and tassels were insanely expensive, which is why you see Marie here decked out in them, and why the wealthy put them on their curtains, footstools, nightcaps, carriages, pillows, shoes, and of course, their clothing. In pictures 2-6, you can see examples of different types of tassels used on 18th century ladies gowns, and picture 7 is one of the tassels used on the Venetian gown I’m finishing up.

The first cover photo for my Etsy store from the 1775 #painting by Daniel Gardner, “The Three Witches from Macbeth.” Because what could be better than #Shakespeare, #witches, and #Macbeth, right? Well it gets even better. The sitters for this painting were #georgianacavendish #duchessofdevonshire 😍; #anneseymourdamer (who was a talented sculptor); and #elizabethlamb #viscountess of Melbourne. We’re talking about #Georgianera #influentialwomen. In all, falling in line with many themes including #georgianjanuary. BTW, the #threewitches are brewing up special Instagram offers for you from #portalsoftimevintage.

Hooray, ladies and gentlemen, it's #GeorgianJanuary! At last 😊 I've decided to be brave and take up the challenge, so wish me luck.
Day 1 is the #GeorgianEra, and since I can hardly imagine the Georgian period without this lovely lady, I thought I'd start off with this fabulous portrait of her by Joshua Reynolds. It's so beautiful, so simple, and yet even her hat can tell a dozen stories about its famous owner.

I love this movie and this particular period in history. My hair naturally looks like Kiera's here which can potentially make dress ups easy. 😎

Rewatched this recently and remember how much I absolutely loved it! It is so intensely felt and gut wrenching and Keira's performance is unparalleled 💘 #theduchess #keiraknightley #georgianacavendish #ralphfiennes #theduke #perioddrama #periodromance - #regrann

Watched The Duchess last night, seriously recommend. It made me so frustrated though at some parts oh my god, like it's based on true events as well
