The Real Grey Gardens
For those who don't know about about Grey Gardens, it is a documentary following the eccentric lives of a the once wealthy socialite mother and daughter pair, both named Edith Beale, living in a rundown mansion in the East Hamptons in 1975. "Big Edie" was the aunt and "Little" Edie was the first cousin of Jackie Kennedy.
Recently, HBO made a movie of Grey Gardens, starring Drew Barrymore and Jessica Lang, showing the lives of the Beale's before the documentary. From watching the movie adaptation and parts of the documentary "Little" Edie, in my eyes, is an iconic character. He carefree personality, articulation of words, and fashion sense is what stood out the most. Her outfits were pretty entertaining, see for yourself.
