Ina Garten posts throwback photo of Barefoot Contessa

“Forty-six years ago this weekend I bought my first store, Barefoot Contessa. That weekend the original owner, Diana Stratta, and I worked 22-hour days the entire holiday. I remember telling Jeffrey this may be the stupidest thing I’ve ever done, but it was also so exhilarating. (I guess it turned out okay?) Now when I look back, I think, who was that crazy girl with the curly hair and the gold necklace??”

I love her warts and all.

She was pretty.

This is making me hungry.

What scares me about that picture is her girth. She was a looker. PRetty with a nice figure. And now...

Did any DLers go to Barefoot Contessa? I remember someone saying it was good but way overpriced.

Wow she was so thin.

Waiting to see a photo of a fish displaying her lifeless body on a platter.

I agree with above, not WASP in the least. She could pass for a Hampton’s housekeeper in that pic.

Now she's a big fat pig. Good for her.

Love her. She was very cute.

Love David Remnick's reaction here after hearing she and Jeffrey camped it out for four months:

I don’t understand the faggolas obsession with her.

by Anonymousreply 19May 28, 2024 2:16 AM

Wait-she’s literally speaking from the POV of what appears to be the fish on the platter, right?

R14 No one ate back then. Of course you'd serve gorgeous food. But no one ate it. We just ran around and drank and did coke. Thin was in.

I still cant believe she worked in the White House.

Ina and Jeffrey were fixtures at Studio 54, they lost nearly a decade due to massive amounts of coke. Ina fucked Halston in the VIP area, which delighted Jeffrey.

Wow, nice photo. Strong actress Elizabeth McGovern visual vibe there.

by Anonymousreply 25May 28, 2024 3:59 AM

She's very brave to post those old pictures and to have close ups of herself as she is now. Much different to martha Stewart who is a hot mess wanting to look like she's still in her 40's all glammed up and ridiculous. Martha is 82, Ina is about 75?

R24, are you joking???? I need to know!!! Picturing them hoovering lines together is hysterical.
