Product description

Hollywood star, royal bride, beloved princess - Grace Kelly lived all three roles with a style all of her own. Renowned for her cool beauty and faultless good taste, the young actress stood apart from the other film sirens of the fifties, with 1000s of women, both in the US and Europe, emulating her classic yet accessible style. Her marriage to Prince Rainier of Monaco in 1956 catapulted Grace Kelly 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. This book, the first to look exclusively at Grace's unique style, accompanies an enchanting exhibition at the V&A opening in April 2010. Sumptuously illustrated, the book introduces Grace's glamorous wardrobe as she transformed herself from actress to bride to princess.

This is a very nice album about Grace Kelly's style and fashion items. I have almost all of the Kelly books, but I still keep this in a high esteem. Strongly recommended for any fan.
