Raising Hell (2019)

The latest Kesha video is a fun one. The American singer plays a televangelist à la Dolly Parton, who’s unfortunately trapped into an abusive marriage with a horrible husband who doesn’t care about her and beats her up all the time. But she’ll soon know how to take her revenge on him. In the video, directed by Luke Gilford, there are two interesting scenes featuring beauty products.

In the screencap above, Kesha is in her dressing room; on her vanity there’s a can of L’Oreal Elnett Satin extra-strong hold hairspray.

But the most interesting moment is set in her house, where we can get a good look at her vanity.

The white fluted refillable atomiser is the super-romantic L’air du temps by Nina Ricci.There’s also the eau de toilette version of Pasha de Cartier, a fresh spicy men’s fragrance created by Jacques Cavallier and launched in 1992. I like to think the televangelist – not her husband – wears it.

Such an eclectic perfume selection wouldn’t be such without a blast of white flowers! So here is Vanderbilt by Gloria Vanderbilt, the 1980s best seller created by Sophia Grojsman.

Another nod to the past is the aqua green tube of Clinique lipstick, a packaging now sadly discontinued.

Thanks to Marco Ortolano for telling me about this video and for the Vanderbilt id.
