We Should Be On The Guest List. Halston And Liza Are Expecting Us — Wanna Name-Drop Them As Fluently As Lorelai? Watch This!
Discover a reference that must have been so fun for Lauren Graham to say — and the show I had to watch to fully grasp the awesomeness of it.
Last Friday, I was working late and my boyfriend wasn’t home. So when I was done for the day, I went on Netflix. I never do that, but I clicked on the bell on the top right corner to see my notifications.
Usually, it’s nothing exciting… I’m really picky. If it’s not Gilmore Girls (or something they referenced!), I’m not interested.
But there it was.
A 5-episodes series about one of the greatest American fashion designer and his tormented, excessive, GLAMOROUS lifestyle.
Ewan McGregor is playing him and Kelly Bishop is in it too. I had to watch that NOW.
I’m a sucker for that kind of show. I studied Fashion after high school and I’m still obsessed by the 60s, Studio 54 and Sex and the City 😅
I finished the series the next day.
Then on Sunday I watched a bit of Gilmore Girls looking for great pop culture references to share with you, and something magical happened… Lorelai referenced Halston!
It’s in season 5, episode 6, Norman Mailer, I'm Pregnant! Rory and Lorelai are going to Friday Night Dinner and the maid opens the door.
LORELAI: Hi, we should be on the guest list. Halston and Liza are expecting us.
I love when that happens. I barely knew Halston before, so I didn’t understand what she meant. But after seeing the Netflix show, I totally got the reference this time!
The thing is, he was BFF with Liza Minnelli, of all people! They were regulars at Studio 54 with the likes of Andy Warhol and Divine, lived a crazy life for a while (drugs, sex and avoiding responsibilities) and they’re both iconic figures of American pop culture.
So Lorelai’s comment is an homage to their legendary friendship and a testimony to their exclusive lifestyle. It’s not just at Studio 54 that there was a guest list, a line-up and people dying to get in (literally… 😱). Their whole life was a party with a mystical glitterati guest list! I bet it was fun to say that line out loud!
So tell me, are you gonna watch Halston on Netflix? 🤩
I wish you a great week Cutie Pie,
