Gigi: (while looking at herself and applying lipstick in a bathroom mirror in a club) God, I love this color on me.
Ruby: Red rum.
Gigi: What?
Ruby: That's what it's called. They say women are more likely to buy a lipstick if it's named after food or sex. Just think about it. Black honey, plum passion, peachy keen.
Gigi: (Sucking on her finger and looking at herself in the mirror) Pink pussy.
  • Abbey Lee served as a unofficial advisor for the film, regarding details about the fashion world. Lee gave Refn intel about how an audition for models would play out, down to the things that the casting directors would have on their table. Abbey Lee also taught Elle Fanning how to do the proper catwalk as a professional model would do.
  • There was issues with casting the part of Dean. A lot of the actors auditioning tried to impersonate Ryan Gosling and it was not until Gaspar Noé suggested Karl Glusman the producers found an actor that worked. Both previously worked on Love (2015), which was Glusman's film debut.
  • The character of Jena is based on Alejandro Jodorowsky.
  • Elle Fanning replaced Carey Mulligan after she dropped out due to scheduling conflicts. Had she remained this would have been her second collaboration with Refn after Drive (2011), and her second collaboration with Jena Malone after Pride and Prejudice (2005).
  • Keanu Reeves improvised the line "Room Two-Fourteen! Gotta be seen!"
