'She thought she'd never seen anything so short, for evening wear, as Eva Riley's dress, only just on the knee when she sat, or indeed anything so long as her slithering red necklace, doubtless also of her own design. Well, her odd flat body was made for fashion, or at least for these fashions; and her sharp little face, not pretty, really, but made up as if it were, in red, white and black like a Chinese doll. Designers, it seemed, were never off duty.' (Hollinghurst, 2011, p.122-23).
