The chance discovery by Juliette of one of Fortunys uniquely pleated, figure-hugging gowns, revolutionary at a time when women wore corsets and petticoats, provides a further bond between her and Nikolai when she wears it to their first dinner and it creates a scandal. Their turbulent love affair is shortlived, and circumstances separate Juliette and Nikolai when he returns to Russia. Juliette moves to Italy and marries another man.
