White face

from F. Scott Fitzgerald – The Great Gatsby (Chapter VI) on Rap Genius

Meaning

The use of color highlights the difference between characters' appearances and their true personalities. White has connotations of purity and innocence, and when we first meet Daisy, she wears a white dress. We immediately associate her with innocence. However, throughout the novel it becomes clear that Daisy is not as pure as she wants others to believe.
