In 1903, there was a fabulous ball in the Winter Palace of the Tsar Nicholas II of Russia. All the guests were dressed on fashion of 17th century.
I found these images when I was looking inspiration for some illustrations. I loved the dresses and how unaware they were of the things will happen in the next years.
I hope you will find them inspiring too.
