      Oh, life is a glorious cycle of song,
      A medley of extemporanea;
      And love is a thing that can never go wrong;
      And I am Marie of Rumania.

      --Dorothy Parker

      The dress is a traditional Romanian costume, all handmade. Every area of Romania has its own traditional costume and the difference stays in the colors, the way they saw, the hats..... It is marvelous. Romanians are also very musical, so traditional songs are great and they also very good dancers.

      en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maria_of_Romania
      She became Queen Mother of Yugoslavia when, following the assassination of King Alexander in Marseille in 1934, her oldest son became Peter II of Yugoslavia, the last Yugoslav king. She moved to a farm in England and lived a relatively normal life, without royal extravagance.
      Maria was well educated. She spoke several languages fluently and enjoyed painting and sculpting.

      I believe this is actually Marie of Edinburgh, a grandaughter of queen Victoria and also of Tsar Alexander II of Russia who went on to become queen of Romania. Her (possibly illegitimate) daughter Maria of Romania was actually the one who became the popular and still well regarded Queen of Yugoslavia.
