Grace Kelly’s Style

Grace Kelly was certainly one of the most beautiful women ever. Today on the occasion of her 83rd birthday, let’s celebrate her celestial beauty, stunning elegance and timeless style.

Grace Kelly‘s life is the stuff that fairy tales are made of, except for the not-so-happy ending. The American actress starred in many films, winning an Academy Award in 1954 for “The Country Girl” before going on to star in Alfred Hitchcock‘s “Dial M For Murder” and “Rear Window” (in which she worked with legendary costume designer Edith Head). While in Cannes in 1955 to attend the film festival, Kelly met Prince Rainier of Monaco whom she would later marry.

Like other screen sirens of the time, the late Princess of Monaco serves as a style icon even today. The blonde beauty followed the styles of the times, and often wore collared tops that framed her lovely face. In her days as a movie star, she emphasized her waist in belted outfits and wore V-neck gowns that showed off her décolletage. Once she took on royal duties, her style became more demure; think cardigans draped over her shoulders, Chanel bouclé skirt suits and double-breasted coats. As for accessories, the princess favored ladylike pearls, gloves and scarves of course.
