She had Cabriole Legs

Cabriole Lag - WPress1

Mrs. Chippendale stood with an elegantly dominant feminine stature. She was furnished as a chairperson and Cabinet Secretary for the British Cabinet since the Queen Anne period of the early 18th century.

Her classic style became the essential pattern for many to follow; as was evident from the tips of her fashionably shellacked nails to the graceful curvature of her Cabriole legs.

// Reference for my inspiration:

Cabriole is a very classic curvilinear furniture leg style that was known to have been in use by the ancient Greeks & Chinese. It reached its historic peak of use in Europe at the early 18th century (Queen Anne period; British). A notable furniture designer of the late 18th century; Thomas Chippendale, was most notable for his eclectic use of the Cabriole leg within his works.
