    i think that if you are going for silhouettes black is probably a better call that white or at least a dark tone. If you were to use white the contrast would be extreme all of a sudden and the eye would be drawn towards the silhouettes rather that the woman.
    maybe play around with some rim lights around the silhouettes to make them pop out more. Just some ideas hope it helps

    Steal the colours from the woman's face to keep the the whole picture flowing as it's so vibrant as is.

    I agree with Black Spot about the color of her face as silouettes, but I find the bubbles so "solid". The bubble closest to her face has the appearance of being transparent because of the darker rim. I'd like to see the bubbles transparent with silouettes of woman dancing in them the same colors as her face. It kinda reminds me of a dream sequence. Anyway, good luck!
