Tall Girl (2019)

tallgirl_bornunicorn (1)When Jodi (Ava Michelle) decides to get a make-over to impress the exchange student Stig, she asks her beauty pageant-winning sister Harper (Sabrina Carpenter) to help her. Much to her dismay, her mother Helaine (Angela Kinsey) is part of the glam squad. The first place they go to is a MAC counter, where Helaine comes up with very specific requests.

On the other side of the spectrum there’s Crème Cup, a light blue pink shade, but Helaine thinks it’s not vampy enough.

Obvious difference for any beauty lover, incomprehensible for someone who doesn’t care about make-up.

De Djess (2015)

dedjess_bornunicornmacladydanger_bornunicornThere’s a MAC red lipstick on Divina’s dressing table. Gianetti (Yanet Mojica), one of the maids who work at the hotel where the events take place, puts it on, along with the dress which is the protagonist of the story. My guess is that it’s Lady Danger, a vivid bright coral-red, one of the most famous shades by the American brand.

De Djess by the Italian director Alice Rohrwacher is the 9th short movie commissioned by Miu Miu as part of the series Women’s Tales. Take some time to watch it because it’s fantastic. Set in the historical Hotel Excelsior in Venice, it tells the story of a dress mysteriously coming ashore, a dress which has a soul and its own language.
