Hollywood star, royal bride, beloved princess— Grace Kelly (1929–1982) embodied all three titles with a style all her own. Renowned for her cool beauty and faultless taste, the young actress stood apart from the other film sirens of the 1950s, with thousands of women, both in the United States and Europe, emulating her classic yet accessible style. Her marriage to Prince Rainier of Monaco in 1956 catapulted Grace to further fame and cemented her influence on the world of fashion. From the Parisian catwalks to the pages of Vogue, the “Grace Kelly Look” became the look of the moment.
Now available in paperback, this book was published to accompany an acclaimed exhibition at the V&A in April 2010. Sumptuously illustrated, the book introduces Grace’s glamorous wardrobe—dress by dress, couturier by couturier, among them Chanel, Madame Grès, Yves Saint Laurent, Christian Dior, and Balenciaga—as she transformed herself from actress to bride to princess.
