That's it! It looks like a total rip-off of the Macbeth costume worn by Ellen Terry. This beetle encrusted dress has undergone some recent conservation work and is looking really spiffy. Also, she was painted in it by Sargent, and he is one of my favorites. Do you see the similarities now? Or am I crazy?
