My Mad Fat Diary S01E06 (It’s a Wonderful Rae Part 2)


chanelcocomademoiselle_bornunicornThere’s a bottle of Chanel Coco Mademoiselle on Rae’s mom’s dressing table. This is historically inaccurate: the tv show is set in the 1990s, while the Chanel perfume was launched in 2001/2002. Unfortunately, this is not the only mistake done by the show’s prop master: you may remember Britney Spears Fantasy and Tom Ford For Men perfumes appeared on Chloe’s desk in an episode of the second season.
