Mme Merteuil and the Viscount of Valmont like to wear expensive clothes, so everybody can see they are rich people. Something distinctive is that both of them like to turn his face as white as is possible, just because they want to look the most pure as they can.

We can see that a lot of people is no what they are supposed to be, all the rules that they need to follow some rules, conventions and traditions, that they need to respect so they can’t be however they want because they need to be as the society want. All the objectives that they have are being so popular and they will not be stopped by the rules. We think that they aren’t really happy because they are always under low pressure and it makes them unhappy.
