The Runaways (2010)

therunaways_bornunicorn (1)David Bowie in his Aladdin Sane persona is Cherie’s idol. Lots of pictures of the British artist can be seen on the walls of her bedroom; among them, the famous picture where he’s sitting at his dressing table and applying his scene make-up. You may remember a Dior perfume in a houndstooth bottle appears in that picture.

 

David Bowie’s Dressing Table (1973)

Screenshot_2015-08-17-23-33-52These pictures were taken by Mick Rock during David Bowie’s British tour in 1973. On his busy dressing table you can see a Dior houndstooth bottle.

My first thought went to the Diorissimo cologne, but the front label is not visible, so it’s impossible to say what perfume he wore. Plus, many Dior perfumes were marketed in the houndstooth bottle (some examples here).
