According to production designer Lawrence Paull, her punk outfits and make-up were inspired by a new wave calendar: “In late 1980, all of us threw a Christmas party in the art department,” Paull explains. “There were presents scattered everywhere. One was a wonderful calender of air-brushed, stylized portraits of new wave fashions – heavy rouge, different hair colors, features and clothes heavily accented. Sometime later Ridley stumbled across that calender and asked if he could borrow it for awhile.

The punk look then became the style for Pris and for some of the background extras on the street.”
