Lilli Palmer in a novelty jumper 1940s

A publicity photo of Broadway actress Lilli Palmer from 1957 (check that lovely hand position!). If I were having an important photo taken I’m not sure I’d choose quite such a novelty one. Are they cockerels on the front of her cardigan or strange mutant spiders…?
