She wears a hat with a wide brim and an elaborately embroidered dress. The hat is light blue or purple in colour, and decorated with large blue and purple feathers and a jewelled, golden-coloured metal embellishment. The dress is also a light blue or purple, with a Queen Anne-type neckline and an ornate brooch on her chest, golden in colour and decorated with inlaid and dangling gems, from which strings of pearls trail downward to drape around her hips. The embroidery on the dress is golden in colour, and forms a swirling organic pattern, interspersed with red gems. The woman holds a handkerchief or scarf up to her right cheek with a white-gloved hand. There are white lilies at the bottom left corner of the image.
