Glimmer of Madness

Prabal Gurung's inspiration was the girl Miss Havisham once was, before she lost her mind.

Dark make up around the eyes and some color strips in the hair provide a hint of what may, one day, become insanity.

The first look before lights went on, comparable to John Singer Sargents' painting The Parisian Beggar Girl, which was a key aesthetic inspiration.
