Raffaella Carrà’s Dressing Room

In 1983 the popularity of the Italian showgirl Raffaella Carrà was about to peak: in that year she would start hosting Pronto, Raffaella?, one of the most successful tv programmes of the decade. Angelo Deligio took these wonderful pictures of Raffaella in her dressing room, surrounded by beauty products, personal items (see the Louis Vuitton Monogram Canvas box above) and design objects [1].

The Hunger (1983)

The moment in which a movie character opens a bathroom cabinet is always thrilling. I personally get the chills because I know I’m about to see something interesting in it. Sarah Roberts’ cabinet, for example, is a very simple but intriguing one. On the bottom shelf there are a spray bottle of Evian Water and a bottle of Johnson’s Baby Powder. I’m a bit on … Continue reading The Hunger (1983)

Sex and the City S05E05 (Plus One Is the Loneliest Number)

Clarins Huile Tonic body treatment, two cans of Evian mineral water spray and a Kiehl’s product (from the haircare or bodycare lines) can be seen in Samantha’s bathroom cabinet. She’s holding a tube of Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour cream. The clear bottle with baby blue pump on the top shelf is surely from the Shiseido Pureness line, old packaging I guess. On the same shelf, … Continue reading Sex and the City S05E05 (Plus One Is the Loneliest Number)
