Grey Gardens


L to R: New York Street, New York Street, Little Edie, London Street and Copenhagen Street

Based on the original 1975 documentary, “Grey Gardens” HBO premiers their star-studded made-for-TV movie featuring Jessica Lange and Drew Barrymore this Saturday, April 18th at 8pm. The story of the eccentric lives of the Bouvier-Beale women living in a dilapidated East Hampton property has fascinated generations of viewers with an expansive list of creative forms, including books, plays and even Broadway musicals. Trendsetters attending Fashion Weeks in major cities emulated Little Edie’s personal take on posh Upper East Side sophisticated looks that she so enthusiastically mused upon in the famed documentary.
