I believe the Nicole Kidman pose you had a question mark over is taken from "Repose," a Sargent at the National Gallery in Washington, D.C., a piece I have copied. . . . It's not super-faithful to the pose, but the frame is in the background, furniture etc are pretty similar.
And I might add the attention to the drape of the dress and material. I see what you mean.
