While Winterhalter painted her in the low-cut evening dresses concocted for her by Worth, photographs of Eugénie depicted her as a demure, well-dressed woman. As the wife of the head of state, she was expected to embody the virtues of Second Empire womanhood, while promoting French fashions and fabrics. The modest, introverted poses she invariably adopted for her official photographs were inspired by the fashion plates of the day.
