The series has been read as an indictment of a pampered oligarchy in a country where poverty is rife. This image depicts a young blonde woman sitting slumped with her legs apart surrounded by dolls on a long pink sofa in a chintzy interior. She is wearing a diamante tiara and a white fur jacket over a bright red low cut jumpsuit. The slashed trousers of the jumpsuit have been pulled up to reveal her legs. She stares defiantly at the camera, confronting the viewer with the scowl of a grumpy teenager.

The wall behind the sofa is lined with floral pink wallpaper. A luridly coloured landscape painting in a carved gilt frame is flanked by two rococo -style portraits of young women, one of whom is pictured impassively ignoring the attentions of a suitor. End tables to the left and right of the sofa are laden with photographs in ornate silver frames, porcelain figurines and large ceramic lamps.

An elaborate flower arrangement rests on a coffee table in the foreground. Dressed in a tacky approximation of Hollywood glamour, she appears trapped in a gilded cage, angry at the role her place in society dictates she play.

The Poor Little Rich Girls of Mexico

Life[ edit ] Rossell was born into the elite class she would later photograph. She is the granddaughter of two former Mexican governors. Her mother was an art collector, and Rossell was raised with an appreciation for fine art. There, she developed an interest in theatre and began acting at age sixteen. She then briefly studied painting at the National School of Visual Arts, but left to pursue a career in photography. The first models for these photographs were as friends and family of the artist, who were Mexican elite, and then began to spread to other elite women who volunteered to model.
