Ruffles and pink are for little girls. Satine empties entire drawers onto the floor for everyone else to fight over.

Black lingerie and red satin are for women like her. No one else wears a diamond corset. Men call the other women pretty. Sometimes they get called beautiful.

No one else gets called their little strawberry or a sparkling diamond. No one else gets picked to be married off to a duke.

No one else is going to leave this place behind for something better, something bigger.

A private dressing room belongs to an actress. It will belong to her.
