A portrait of Marie Antoinette in front of the Temple of Love at the Petit Trianon, attributed to Jean-Baptiste André Gautier-Dagoty

It was this portrait that shocked a nation. Marie Antoinette, the queen of France in 1783, had already outraged the French with her opulence; now she managed to scandalise the nation by ditching the glitz and taking a more simple approach to her outfits.    So simple, in fact, that the nation thought she had posed for the portrait in her underwear.
