bodycare in movies, perfumes in movies

Seberg (2019)

seberg_bornunicornJean Seberg (Kristen Stewart) is getting ready for a photoshoot in her beautiful Hollywood mansion. There are some beauty items on her vanity, two of which are by Avon.

As I’ve already pointed out, I think it’s the body lotion of Imari, which had the packaging in this exact shade of red. Imari perfume and its bodycare line were originally launched in 1985, though, so this could be another example of historical inaccuracy.

Thanks to Hillary, the curator of the Makeup Museum, for the Avon Patterns id.
