Little Edie, at 56 years of age, without having had plastic surgery, was still just gorgeous. Amazing. Beautiful.
She certainly wasn’t insane or an alcoholic, she was an eccentric, suppressed by a domineering mother who never gave her the opportunity to find her own way and flourish. It’s such a tragic waste of a life never to realise one’s potential. Little Edie would have been absolutely formidable, had she just been given the chance.
