Claude Chabrol meets My Bloody Valentine

That is Bilinda Butcher on the cover of My Bloody Valentine's 1988, You Made Me Realise EP, right? I’m pretty sure it is, but I’ve never seen it confirmed. Does anyone know whether that shot apes any specific film image? I saw Chabrol’s (excellent) Les Bonnes Femmes (1960) for the first time last year and some of its imagery reminded me of the YMMR cover, hence this vid.. Anyone know whether MBV ever expressed any especial fondness for Chabrol or for the nouvelle vague more generally?
