The Crown S05E07 (No Woman’s Land)

I am disappointed by the selection of beauty products that the show’s prop masters have put on Lady D’s dressing table. In general, this vanity looks sad (which makes sense) and old (which really doesn’t). None of the products and perfumes she used has been featured here, not even Penhaligon’s Bluebell, one of her signature scents [1].

The lipstick in the gold case is by Clarins. It’s sitting on a round compact probably by Christian Dior.

The white box with a funky red pattern is an Avon nail polish. This was a weird decision: what is a product from the 1970s doing here? Did the prop masters know this was Lady Diana’s vanity? Or they believed it belonged to one of her old relatives?

There’s also Braun Independent cordless styler.

On the far right there’s a nice aqua box by Estee Lauder. Although probably not totally accurate, at least it seems plausible.

[1] This particular detail hurts the most. Why were other Penhaligon’s perfumes featured in Seasons 1 and 2 and not here, where one authentic touch was so much needed?

Thanks to Scentimentalist for the Braun, Clarins and Dior id.

American Horror Story S08E01 (The End)

ahsapocalypse_e01_bornunicorn (1)ahsapocalypse_e01_bornunicorn (2)The episode opens with an ordinary scene: the heiress Coco St. Pierre Vanderbilt (Leslie Grossman) is getting a haircut. She wants to become an Instagram influencer: she has no intention to “show her full ass crack” so her hairstyle “has to be on point.” Her hair stylist is Mr. Gallant (Evan Peters), who comes from a rich family just like Coco but, unlike her, has been able to make something out of himself: he’s a celebrity hair stylist, “the new Chris McMillan“.
