Kylie Minogue’s Dressing Table

kylieminogue_victoriaandalbertmuseum_bornunicorn (5)One of the most exciting things I’ve ever seen is Kylie Minogue’s dressing room displayed in Room 106 at the Victoria & Albert Museum. A glass room contains the exact replica of the vanity, mirrors, chairs and wardrobe that the Australian singer had for her 2007 Showgirl: The Homecoming tour.

John Cameron Mitchell’s Dressing Room

20150118-hedwig-slide-0o9f-superjumboJohn Cameron Mitchell’s dressing room at the Belasco Theatre is one of the best dressing rooms I’ve ever written about. The picture above, taken by Todd Heisler in 2015, is very simple but hugely inspiring. Freddie Mercury, Dolly Parton, David Bowie and Mick Ronson – their pictures are plastered on the walls and on the mirror – surely served as source of inspiration for Hedwig, the character JCM played in the 2001 film he directed. Besides this show-biz eye candy, there are lots of interesting products.

This line (also known as Knock Out) is a product of the creativity of Mike Potter, the artist who created the iconic hair and makeup looks for Hedwig & the Angry Inch. I think the shades here are Liberty (patina green), Park (matte park bench green), Flatte Black (two bottles), Indi (dark navy), Flatte Top top coat and Eel (pastel chartreuse) in the black box.

Thanks to my friend Jennifer for the ids.

7/11 (2014)



I usually don’t cover music videos, but today I want to make an exception to the rule. A new Beyoncé video has just been released: 7/11 introduces the upcoming Beyonce: Platinum Edition box set. It’s a departure from the elaborate and dramatic videos of the American artist, which makes it even fresher and funnier. It looks like an amateur video; the impression is that Beyoncé wants us to see what her real life looks like. Everything seems plausible, casual and natural, in particular the setting (her house), but we can imagine that nothing has been left to chance. My favourite scenes are set in her magnificent bathroom: there’s a table covered in make-up products on one side and marble basins on the other side of the room. I’d love to identify all the items appearing in these scenes, but I’ve been able to id just a few – lots of MAC brushes, a bottle of Lubriderm moisture lotion and a golden can of L’Oreal Elnett Satin hairspray.

The song too is a departure from Beyoncé’s traditional repertoire. I probably prefer her old songs, but I enjoy artists who experiment with their music.

Adriana Asti’s Dressing Table

How awesome is this? I’ve spotted Guerlain La petite robe noire perfume, L’Oreal Elnett Satin hairspray and Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Or on the dressing table of the great Italian actress Adriana Asti.

The picture was taken by Rocco Talucci at Caio Melisso Theatre in Spoleto during the 56th edition of Festival dei due mondi, where the actress performed in La voce umana (La voix humaine) and Il bell’indifferente (Le bel indifférent) by Jean Cocteau.
