Shesaurus Gisette

A flirtatious coquette. She uses her feminine wile to charm the diamonds out of rabbit suckers. "Ah, the grisettes! I had almost forgotten. They are another romantic fraud...and oh, so charmingly, so delightfully immoral!" Mark Twain/ 1869 Innocents Abroad. Pictured: Infamous Madam du Barry who hussied her way into court and in the arms of King Louis XV. Portrait by: François-Hubert Drouais.
