The rare beauty and stunning self-possession that propelled Grace Kelly into the Hollywood pantheon, onto the Best-Dressed List, and ultimately to Monaco’s royal palace were more than captivating, they were completely genuine.

As London’s Victoria and Albert Museum unveils an exhibition devoted to Kelly’s style, which still inspires fashion houses from Hermès, Tommy Hilfiger to Mad Men’s costumer Janie Bryant, the author looks at the intertwined qualities of an icon: white-gloved ingénue, elegant goddess, passionate and
frankly sexual and romantic.

In Cannes, Nicole Kidman plays Grace de Monaco in a movie concerning one of the most prefered actresses and fashion women in the world. She was American and became the icon of European fashion in the 1950’s. A perfect exemple of modernity, tradition and elegance we continue to appreciate day to day and year after year.  Your name suited you so well and made you so special and perfect.
