  • Drew Barrymore takes a style step back in time for premiere

    Taking a style step back in time last night, Drew Barrymore looked every inch the old school Hollywood star for the premiere of new movie, Grey Gardens.

    Glimmering in a floor length Alberta Ferretti nude gown, the actress wowed as she shared the red carpet with co-stars Jessica Lange and Jeanne Tripplehorn.

    It was the finishing touches that really made her look though. Side swept pin curls topped off with a netted flower hair pin, added a high dose of 20s glamour, while a bewelled clutch and Roger Vivier heels proved the perfect compliments to her stunning gown.  

    Even her make-up reflected the chic retro style; soft smoky eyes, with plenty of smudgy black kohl liner, and her slick ruby red pout brought a pop of colour to the otherwise neutral look.

    Set to be shown on US TV network HBO, Grey Gardens is based on the lives of the eccentric aunt and cousin of Jackie Onassis, both named Edith Bouvier Beale, and nicknamed Big and Little Edie. The pair led the life of Park Avenue debutantes, before withdrawing from New York society, and retreating to their Long Island summer home, Grey Gardens.

    Barrymore and Lange take the roles of Little and Big Edie respectively, while Tripplehorn plays political style icon, Jackie O.
