Grey Gardens

I love that she has been inspired by her role: You can tell that most of her outfits have been derived from the movie. Most of the editorials and outfits she has worn to promote the movie has the Classic & Elegant feel of the time period of Grey Gardens.






Drew Barrymore as "Little" Edith Bouvier Beale in Grey Gardens.










“Their style was born out of necessity,” Mr. Som said. “It recalls early Madonna, when she had no money and lived in the East Village and just pulled things together. What came out of it was a completely original look. Little Edie was the first one that we know about who became a fashion original that way.”

"as the Beales fell into financial ruin, she invented head wraps using blouses, brooches and safety pins".


John Galliano channeling Edith Beale.
