Rosalie, her sisters and friend are in her bedroom, fixing their hair, makeup, nail polish etc. for 'the Big Day'. There are hot rollers in the background, and a makeup bag on the floor and makeup on the bench. This was Rosalie's last day in the bedroom she had as a girl. She has kept the dressing table in the photograph, and restored it; it's in her current home.
