Description:
A black and white photographic print of Jennifer looking through plastic as she walks the runway at the Eric Bazaar Ball in Brooklyn in 1999. Jennifer appears on the left side of the image, looking past the camera towards the right of the frame. She wears a light-colored satin-like garment with a low-cut v-neckline extending to her ribcage. Behind her is another participant wearing a white, feather-trimmed dress with white boa. Her head is thrown back and her hands are above her head. Reflected lights appear across the image and the top of the image is slightly hazy and obscured.
