Gloria Bell (2018)


foreolunamini2_bornunicornWhile Gloria (Julianne Moore) is doing the laundry in the washbasin, we can see some products she has in her bathroom. There’s the facial massager Foreo Luna Mini 2 in Mint.

A Single Man (2009)

asingleman_bornunicornWhile Charlotte (Julianne Moore) is applying eye-liner, we can get a glimpse of her dressing table.

esteelauder_youthdewcolognesplash_bornunicornThere are two versions of Estee Lauder Youth Dew, the perfume created by Josephine Catapano in 1953: the aqua blue spray bottle contains the eau de parfum, while the glass bottle contains the cologne.

Boogie Nights (1997)

boogienights_bornunicorn.pngoscardelarentaespritdeparfum_bornunicornThere are three bottles of Oscar de la Renta Esprit de Parfum on Amber’s dressing table. This is likely to be a historically accurate choice: Oscar, the first perfume of Oscar de la Renta, was created by Jean-Louis Sieuzac and launched in 1977.

oscarespritdeparfumad_bornunicorn.jpgThe Esprit de Parfum was launched in the 1980s, so it’s possible it was on the market in 1984, year in which the last scenes of the film are set.

Maps to the Stars (2014)

mapstothestars_bornunicorn (2)Havana Segrand (Julianne Moore) has got quite a perfume collection: the marble top of her dressing table is pretty busy.

jeanpaulgaultier_femme_bornunicornThere’s another perfume by Cavallier, the iconic corset-shaped bottle of Jean-Paul Gaultier Classique, a sweet powdery scent launched in 1993.



Two Prada bottles can be seen, too. One is Infusion de Fleur d’Oranger, launched in 2009, and the other is Candy, created by Daniela Andrier and launched in 2011.

guccibygucci_bornunicornThere’s a bottle of Gucci by Gucci, a fruity fragrance created by Ilias Ermenidis in 2008.

chanelcocomademoiselle_bornunicornchanel_cocomademoiselleatomiser_bornunicornLast but not least, there are two versions of Chanel Coco Mademoiselle, the oriental woody fragrance created by Jacques Polge and launched in 2001 – the classic bottle and the twist-and-spray white and gold atomiser.

boucheronfemme_bornunicornOne is the ring-shaped bottle of Boucheron Pour Femme, a white floral perfume created by Francis Deleamont and Jean-Pierre Bethouart in 1989.

The other one is the hot pink bottle of Creed Spring Flower, a fresh fruity and floral fragrance created for Audrey Hepburn by Olivier Creed (6th generation) and launched in 2006.

A Single Man (2009)

tumblr_n0yoq8uvyv1sm54eyo1_1280There’s a Guerlain flacon montre with glass stopper on Charley’s bed-side table. The central disk of the label is not visible, so it’s hard to tell what perfume it contained. It’s dark, though, so we can make some assumptions.

guerlainodecologne_bornunicornIt could be Ode, with the purple disk.

guerlainvoldenuitcologne_vintage_bornunicornOr Vol de Nuit, with the navy blue disk.

guerlain_jickycologne_bornunicornIt could also be Jicky, with the burgundy disk.

guerlainliucologne_vintage_bornunicornOr Liu, with the black disk.

guerlainmitsoukocologne_bornunicornOr even Mitsouko, with the emerald green disk.

Which Guerlain cologne do you think could suit the character? I would see her wearing Jicky, with its fresh spicy notes, or Liu, with its beautiful opening of aldehydes and bergamot.


Still Alice (2014)


stillalice_bornunicornThere are several skincare products in Alice Howland’s bathroom cabinet.

mariobadescucream_bornunicornOn the top shelf I’ve spotted a Mario Badescu face cream. The front label cannot be read, so it’s impossible to tell what cream it is. There’s also a tube of Verb styling cream.



drhauschkafacialtoner_bornunicornOn the bottom shelf there are a Mario Badescu moisturizer (it could be the A.H.A. & ceramide one), Kérastase Homme Capital Force shampoo and ultra-fixing densifying gel, La Mer moisturizing soft cream and Dr Hauschka facial toner.

Thanks to Emily in the comments for the Verb id.

Behind the Scenes of the 87th Academy Awards: Julianne Moore

wpid-wp-1424819978362.jpegThe 87th Academy Awards have surely been a feast for the eyes of fashion lovers all around the world. During the red carpet and the ceremony, Internet was flooded with pictures and comments published in real time, but most of the times what happened behind the scenes was more interesting than what everybody got to see on tv. Thank God for Instagram, where stylists, manicurists, make-up artists and hair-stylists posted pictures of the routine celebrities went through before wowing the world with their fantastic looks.

I was particularly intrigued by the account of Elaine Offers, who did the make-up of Julianne Moore. The American actress (who wore a Chanel Haute Couture custom-made dress) won the Oscar as Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role for Still Alice by Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland. She looked gorgeous, but who knew Offers did her make-up using L’Oreal Paris products only? Yay for budget beauty!

juliannemooreoscar_bornunicornOn her dressing table I spotted Infallible Pro-Matte liquid foundation and powder, Visible Lift Blur blush and Color Lift blush, Colour Riche balm and Infallible Le Rouge lipstick, Revitalift Moisture Blur anti-aging moisturizer, Age Perfect Cell Renewal advanced restoring golden serum and Color Riche Dual Effects eyeshadow palette in Rose Nude. Julianne is one of the ambassadors and testimonial of L’Oreal Paris, but she could use make-up and skincare of any high-end brand, so it’s nice to see she actually wears the products she advertises.

wpid-wp-1424819982989.jpegHere is a beautiful shot of Elaine putting some mascara on Julianne. I guess this happened moments before she left for the Dolby Theatre. Exciting, isn’t it?
