Cher Public

Shocked disbelief

“Her expression is one of shocked disbelief. Her appearance is incongruous to this setting. She is daintily dressed in a white suit with a fluffy bodice, necklace and earrings of pearl, white gloves and a hat, looking as if she were arriving at a summer tea or cocktail party in the garden district. She is five years older than Stella. Her delicate beauty must avoid strong light. There is something about her uncertain manner, as well as her white clothes, that suggest a moth.” [New York Times]
