Does this wig make me look fat?

From Ron Chernow’s brilliant biography Alexander Hamilton (which inspired the hit Broadway musical):

“Washington, in a black velvet suit, danced and cut a dashing figure with the ladies, while Steuben flashed with medals, and French officers glistened with gold braid and lace. In this anomalous setting, the women courted these revolutionaries in powdered hair and high heels.”

Oh, those FABULOUS revolutionaries!

(I thought the French officers were most appealing in the pumps, didn’t you, darling? Merci beaucoup!)
