There aren't a lot of family photos of Ariane smiling; as a tiny child she had lost a milk tooth early from an accident, and so didn't have one until the second tooth grew in. I think it affected her tendency to be sombre in photographs. But her smile was one of her amazing characteristics -- it lit up her face and had a power to dazzle.

The image I have chosen here owes apologies to both the subject and the photographer -- it was probably not one that either would have chosen for her portfolio. But it is what I have. I can imagine one of Ariane's other looks: the cocked eyebrow and sardonic, "what the heck...?" expression...
