Divine on Harpers and Queen (1980)

divine_harpersandqueens_bornunicornDivine having a bubble bath in a St. John’s Wood bathroom is such an entrancing view! The artist from Baltimore, protagonist of many iconoclastic films by John Waters, posed for Peter Warner for Divine Bathrooms, Lovely Loos, a photoshoot published on the British magazine Harpers and Queen (September 1980 issue).

Do you want to channel your inner Divine? You need a ball dress by Zandra Rhodes to abandon on the floor, a box of Charbonnel et Walker chocolates, a shell ring by Andrew Logan and a platinum blonde curly hairdo. No results guaranteed but worth trying ♥

  1. i wonder if the bottle with the white lid could be Y by YvesSaintLaurent

    great post btw – I’m going to try eating chocolates in the bath soon 🙂

  2. It could be but I’m unsure – the shape of that bottle seems quite rounded on top, while Y had a squared bottle.

    Thank you ♥ Eating chocolates in the bath sounds good!
