The "It" Crowd
Yesterday the launch of the art exhibition attracted a whole spectrum of people to check it out.
Some were artistes, or wannabes who wanted to associate themselves with the artsy crowd. Others were art students or fans of artists.
But there was also a curious bunch of people who wanted to get in on the action, like this woman in the foreground and her two friends.
She stood out in particular, with her short, short psychedelic dress and heels, but also what appeared to be a wig on her head and her face painted with green eye shadow and baby doll lips.
While her friends talked about the artwork, she stood there impassively with not much reaction on her face.
It was hard to tell whether she was absorbing their discussion or wanting to get attention in her own, artistic way.
