His hair looks a strange colour for 15.  ;D ;D And those lips are suspiciously red! ;)

He would have worn grey powder in his hair - the latest fashion.  The lips would probably have been the artist's fancy, Louis XV was never known to have worn rouge.

ML's favourite child was the Duc d'Anjou, who died very young.  The poor child was sickly and some of the women attending him, being very superstitious, gave him the earth from the Saint Medard cemetery to eat, mixed into his food.  It came from the grave of a saintly person.  After the child's death, when the doctors opened up the body, they found a lot of earth in his intestines.  It was a mystery as the child did not go into the garden and there was none in his bedroom.  They could not understand how he ingested such a large quantity of earth.  Only for Marie Leczinska to find out with horror that her child has been given the earth from the Saint Medard cemetary!

This is an interesting one as it's a copy of the portrait of Louis' mother Marie Adelaide on the Marie Adelaide thread.
