Feud E05 (And the Winner Is…)

feud_s01e05_bornunicorn (9)besamecosmetics_1960perfume_bornunicornJoan Crawford’s dressing table is quite busy. She’s getting ready for the Oscars 1963 and she picks a perfume bottle among many of them. The glass bottle with the yellow pump is from the Bésame Cosmetics Decades of Fragrance collection. I wonder what perfume Joan wore: the 1960s floral chypre or a fragrance inspired to a previous decade?

Feud E05 (And the Winner Is…)

Joan Crawford is getting a manicure for the Oscars 1963. The beautiful array of nail polishes in the screencap above includes shades by Cutex and Revlon.

The first bottle on the left is the Cutex nail polish Joan will opt for: the shade is Sterling Silver, which will match her Edith Head silver dress and Van Cleef and Arpels diamond jewellery.

The fluted bottle behind the manicurist’s hand is a nail polish by Avon.

The Revlon shades are mostly pinks and reds and have exotic names, like Persian Melon, Beach Peach and Frosted Sphinx Pink. The two bottles in the front contain a platinum nail polish and the top coat Seal Fast. These are bottles used by professionals, because their tall bottles differ from the long-handle ones which were on the market at the time.

Last but not least, there’s a bottle of Jewel Glaze (another top coat) on the right. Unfortunately, I couldn’t read the label to identify the brand.
