But anyways, it was a totally different situation comparing it with the one of her siblings, the
archduchess Sophie died also a pair of years after the birth of MV

One of the..ugliest dresses I've ever seen on Royal persons and the most balloon-ish sleeves as well.

I think the most beautiful fashion was in the Empire time. And the 20th of the last century.

really, Sissi's daughters had no taste in fashion. In Countess Marie L's book, she comments, which i think is one of the few truths, that Gisela would copy the Duchess Marie Josepha in Bavaria (her aunt). Once the Duchess put on a basket on her head and said to Gisela that it was the new fashion and sometime later, Gisela wear a basket-like hat. The Duchess and Countess only laughed at Gisela. which is kinda sad.

 May sound really strange, but sometimes I even forget that Gisela and Marie Valerie are Sissi's daughters, both girls are very different from their mother in looks and personalities.

Yes. None of her children inheirited her striking looks or taste in clothes. Sad.

I am sure Maria Josepha had her moments. She had the full trial with her husband Otto, who openly sleeps around.

She s talking about Maria Josefa in Bavaria nee Braganza, second wife of Karl Theodor, not Archduchess MAria josepha, Wife of Archduke Otto.
