First, she wears a brown wig consisting of a part down the middle of her head and a ponytail on either side, after a second round with the same man, merely taking off her gold trenchcoat to reveal a tight-fitting black dress underneath. She looks like an informal, yet sophisticated red-headed woman. Progressively, she then becomes a black-haired woman, the hair being short, full and curly. After staring into her drink, which suspectly turns bright blue, she is seen dancing with the man who she continuously changes for, in a blue dress and a Marilyn Monroe-esque blonde wig. Finally, we see her in a black headscarf with long wavy blonde hair. All the while, she is singing to the same man, who finds this night of speed dating an escalating amusement and she eventually ends up his arms, with editing techniques changing which “Sophie” is in his arms.
