We see Ellen take her time getting dressed, she picks out aqua shoes and dresses in an aqua & white print negligee, which matches the wall paper.
Richard and Ellen initially appear to be established as star-crossed lovers and we are actually kind of excited when she lies to her fiancee to get rid of him, but when Ellen's self-absorbed and obsessive behavior quietly bubbles to the surface, we then want to slap Richard and tell him to wake up because he is the only person in the story who really doesn't see who Ellen really is.
