My Favourite Image

This is one of my favourite image from the movie The Virgin Suicides. I imagine it's the quintessential display for any girl that dumps out her purse on her bed. I love collages of items such as this one. The contrast between the lacy underwear, girly makeup and religious tokens shows the uncertainty in the girls' lives. The cross between little-girl objects (the mirror, the fan) and the grown-up objects (the lipstick, the perfume) shows that they are indeed at a stage of change.
