Black-and-white, full-length portrait of a woman turned toward the left side of the image, her face turned toward the viewer. She is standing in the left side of the image, in front of a black background and wearing a black, satin, strapless gown. She is holding a cigarette to her mouth that is in a long cigarette holder, and wearing a metal bracelet on her left wrist. She is wearing a light-colored, satin scarf wrapped loosely around her head, and dark tufts of her short hair are visible from underneath the scarf.
