It goes without saying that Grace Kelly is a style icon. Once labeled by Vogue as 'remote as a snow Queen', there is no doubt her timeless style and natural glamour is as aspirational now, as it ever was.
The parallels between her and Princess Diana are obvious, and sadly they both died young, in car crashes. Grace kelly luckily lived before our obsession with knowing every detail of celebrities lives, so remains somewhat of an enigma.
A forthcoming exhibition at the V & A traces the evolution of her style, from her days as one of Hollywood's most popular actresses in the 1950's, through to her time as Princes Grace of Monaco. The collection will feature over 50 of her outfits, together with accessories from designers and couturiers such as Dior, Balenciaga, Givenchy and Yves St Laurent.
Definitely one to see.
