Grey Gardens

Grey Gardens was a film originally released in 1976, documenting the lives of  Edith “Big Edie” Ewing Bouvier Beale and her daughter “Little Edie”,  the aunt and first cousin of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis. The two women lived together in an East Hampton estate, in squalor and almost total isolation. A new book with never before seen photos from the Maysles brothers (published by Free News Projects) and an HBO movie (staring Drew Barrymore and Jessica Lange) both (suprisingly) titled Grey Gardens are about to drop. We thought it was a good time to show a bit of fashion craziness – and a true genius of style, that is Little Edie……In the Fall of 1971 and throughout 1972, their living conditions were exposed as the result of an article in the National Enquirer and a cover story in New York Magazine after a series of inspections (which the Beales classified as “raids”) by the Suffolk County Health Department. With the Beale women facing eviction and the razing of their home, Jacqueline Onassis and her sister, Lee Radziwill, provided the necessary funds to stabilize and repair the dilapidated house, so that it would meet Village codes. By the time the film was released, the house had fallen back into a state of destitution, again. The documentary was made by brothers Albert and David Maysles. Once the film was released Grey Gardens became a cult classic and established Little Edie as a fashion icon and philosopher queen.
