Like a character from a fictional novel that has its pages filled with both a sense of wonder and an unexplainable darkness, Pascal Demeester’s governess appears to have steeped out from another world, perhaps another era. She is strange in that truly wonderful way, she is enigmatic and grim, beautiful and whimsical, raising questions and dragging you into the story, just like any unusual character should.

Thick, strong eyebrows, porcelain skin and a bold graphic eye makeup are the gorgeous features that Janeiro Bofill envisioned to complement her one-of-a-kind portrait of beauty. You can discern the austerity in the way she dresses as well: collared shirts, knitted skirts, heavy sweaters and scarfs, topped off with strings of pearls and massive rings used by Jessica Soga to tie it all together.

L’Wren Hodgins’ flawless reenactment of peculiarity is further polished by Mara Schiavetti’s dashing up do’s that represent the perfect compromise between modern and conventional.
