Fashion Inspiration :"Edith Bouvier Beale, "Little Edie "

Grey Gardens is a documentary released in 1975, the cousin's of Jackie Kennedy had been living in Grey Gardens, a dilapidated estate in East Hampton NY. The mother and daughter were isolated and practically shut in's for almost 25 years. They also were eccentrics to say the least but in a very endearing way.

 Grey Gardens has always been a favorite movie fo mine and I wanted to make a tribute to Little Edie's style. Edith Beale suffered from alopecia and always wore a scarf to cover her head which became her signature look. Below are some looks that were directly inspired by Edie.

  1. She really did become a cult icon in her own right, apart from Jackie. Funny how things wind up turning out!
