Drew Barrymore Grey Gardens HBO

Did you see Grey Gardens tonight on HBO? Little Edie and Big Edie were the cousin and aunt of Jackie Bouvier Kennedy Onassis respectively. I was blown away by Drew Barrymore and Jessica Lange’s chilling performances.

The story of the relationship between these two codependent women was unbelievably fascinating. The life they lead unfathomable and extraordinary. I felt sorry for Little Edie at the end for having never been able to live her own life and felt sorrow for Big Edie for never leading the life she wanted. I had to find the original trailer from the original documentary to show you. I am definitely going to watch the entire documentary when I can get a copy.

Check out the amazing fashion from the 30’s. There was one scene where Jeanne Tripplehorn as Jackie Kennedy visits Little Edie and Big Edie at Grey Gardens where she holds the Gucci Jackie bag in the outdoor scene and I thought, gosh I wish I kept mine from the early 2000’s from the Gucci remake of the Jackie bag collection. Now, if you don’t want to pay $3200 for the New Gucci Large Jackie bag as seen below. I have found a few great options for you for a fraction of that price by Marc by Marc Jacobs and other designers.
