Grace Kelly: Style Icon exhibition at V&A Museum


Portrait of Princess Grace on her tenth wedding anniversary, 1966

The fabulous, dear Grace Kelly was one of the most photographed women of the 20th century, usually recalled for her beauty and elegance. She rose to fame as an actress in the 1950s, starring in films by Hitchcock and others. The young Grace Kelly seemed to combine both qualities: wholesome, but distinctly glamorous at the same time.

  1. She was a prodigiously beautiful woman & with a great sense of style. You have no idea how I wish today's actresses had her fashion sense, instead of dressing at Christian Audigier!

    Great blog, as always. Keep up the good work.
