Raffaella Carrà’s Dressing Room (1983)

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].

lancome_vintagetoniquedouceur_bornunicornThe first beauty products that have captured my attention are by Lancôme. Raffaella used the classic toner/cleansing milk duo: the toner is Tonique Douceur, while the cleansing milk is Galatéis Douceur.

This picture was taken on the opposite side of the room. The Lancôme duo is still visible, but next to Raffaella there’s another intriguing bottle.

shopgirl_bornunicorn (5)Lisa Cramer (Bridgette Wilson-Sampras) is a bored sales assistant at the perfume counter at Saks Fifth Avenue in Los Angeles. Let’s see what’s on her counter.

Bulgari BLV is presented in two versions: the blue and silver bottle is BLV Pour Homme (created by Alberto Morillas in 2001), while the blue bottle is BLV Absolute, launched in 2002.

There are many products by Boucheron. First, the body lotion and the perfumed dusting powder from the Boucheron Pour Femme line.

On the right side of the counter there are several skincare products by Lancôme – two make-up removers (Bi-Facil and Effacil, in the dark blue bottle) and two toners (Tonique Douceur and Tonique Controle).
