Yes. Although the Empress can select pieces to wear. If you look at the photos or paintings of Alicky & Minny. Minny tend to wear more jewels than Alicky. Perhaps the younger woman felt the burden of wearing so many plus the heavy robes.

She looks incredible with her coronation gown!!!
Marie through the time is lovely too, she looks much better with bustle than crinoline!!

The clothes of the 1880's-1890's suited Minny.

Yes, I agree, the bustle dresses made her figure to look more beautiful than with big
crinolines

It must be based on her famous painting

The print (that I have) is when Dagmar & her family visited England, they were dressed alike. It was commented on in the ILN.

The portrait I think was based on a photo, since she had the same jewels.

Strange to see Minny already in mourning clothes & veil before her husband was dead.

I think that priest in the painting (I am wrong, his rank is higher than just a priest) is John from Kronstadt who was presented at AIII's death at Livadia in October of 1894, and who later healed both Anna Vyrubova and Zenaida Yussupova.
