Drew Barrymore goes Retro for Premier of Grey Gardens

Grey Gardens premiers tomorrow night Saturday April 18th at 8:00 pm. I'm so excited about seeing this film from HBO! Drew Barrymore stars as “Little Edie” Bouvier Beale. Jessica Lange stars as "Big Edie".
The movie is a riches-to-rags love story of a mother and daughter whose lives disintegrate into utter squalor at Grey Gardens, their Lily Pond Lane beachfront estate in East Hampton. Little Edie, the cousin of Jackie Kennedy Onassis, was a vivacious, yet fragile, aristocratic young woman. Image courtesy of HBO
A young Little Edie takes the runway at a fashion show, which was likely held as a fundraiser. "The Hamptons now are full of models, advertising people and celebrities," says director Sucsy, "but it wasn't like that then. They had the Ladies Village Improvement Society, which would have these kinds of charity events." The original script included a fashion-show scene in which Edie's dress gets damaged and she solves the problem by wrapping another girl's cape around herself as a skirt.

Drew at the NY premier of Grey Gardens. Isn't she just beautiful in her flapper pin curls, net and red lips?

Drew is wearing an Alberto Ferretti gown, isn't it smashing? She really pulls off the retro 20's look.

You can read all about how Drew made extensive preparations for the film here, in fact the whole blog is devoted to Grey Gardens.

You know where I'll be tomorrow night!
