Irma Vep (1996)


cetaphil_oldpackaging_bornunicornWhile wandering through the corridors of her hotel, Maggie Cheung – in Irma Vep black latex attire – enters a room where a semi-naked woman (interpreted by Arsinée Khanjian, credited as l’américaine) is talking on the phone. Maggie goes into her bathroom and steals a necklace. On the marble counter there are some beauty products, too. For example, a bottle of Galderma Cetaphil cleanser in the old packaging (blue label and white lettering).
