Galerie des Modes, 39e Cahier (bis), 6e Figure*

* There are two 39e Cahier (bis)es.  The first one is five coiffure plates and a fashion plate, the second is all dress.  I'm sorry, I'm confused too.

Lady dressed in a very elegant grand Domino to go to a masked Ball. (1784?)

This domino differs very little from that of plate 86, to which we return for the explanation of the successive forms of this fancy dress for its variations for masques.

We note, however, the difference in hairstyles; the use of felt hats, positioned on the lower and lower coiffures, extend even to ball toilettes.
