What if Edith Bouvier Beale were reincarnated as a millennial? Or - bear with us here - she was the first millennial (cue gasp)?

One thing’s for sure: the modern-day Little Edie radiates a nonchalance that’s quite astonishing, as she pulls trick after trick from her tweed MaxMara sleeve. It’s certain the personal myth-making (couldabeen FLOTUS) and signature headscarves would garner many, many likes. In a weird millennial place between wealth and poverty, hyper-connectivity and loneliness, our thirtysomething chameleon would, we hope, think of her digital profile before encouraging quite so many feral cats to swarm around Grey Gardens. Or, perhaps, an IG profile for each cat? No, Lady of the manor, we will not get off the grass!

“This is the best thing to wear for today, you understand. Because I don’t like women in skirts and the best thing is to wear pantyhose or some pants under a short skirt, I think. Then you have the pants under the skirt and then you can pull the stockings up over the pants underneath the skirt. And you can always take off the skirt and use it as a cape. So I think this is the best costume for today.”
― Edith Bouvier Beale

Featured in Issue No. 4 Falling
How much richer for writers and artists – Titian, Albert Camus, Alicia Keys – is the idea of falling than its Thatcherite counterpart, rising? Even the fear of falling is delicious, as you wonder how you ever lost control, what is this feeling, and where will it end?
