Oops, I was inattentive towards you, ForeverGrace...
Sorry, if I offended you, I'd not do it...
I'm looking forward to you and your opinion.

You did not offend me at all queenofthelight
I guess the men on TRF are few... I've always been a huge fan
of our beloved Princess. If you get the chance you really should visit one
of the exhibitions and pay tribute to this amazing and unique woman!
All my best to you

It's brilliant news that at last the V& A have announced they will be hosting this wonderful exhibition. I think the following publication will be released to accompany the exhibition:
Grace Kelly Style: Fashion for Hollywood's Princess

I think its a good idea the exhibition has a slightly honed in focus - it will be interesting to see if the gowns are displayed in a different way. I too will treasure memories of the Monaco exhibition, it's only right that this venue focused more on the intimate memorbilia. I agree ForeverGrace there needs to be a permanent exhibition space in Monaco for such a remarkable woman - she did so much to put the Principality on the map. Meanwhile we can look forward to coverage of the Rome exhibition

Thanks dear iceflower for posting the photos.In spite of having visited the exhibition both in Monaco and in Paris,I would like to visit in Rome too.
I would like to know the measures of the exhibition,as in Monaco was 4000m∑ and in Paris only 700m∑ ,so I missed many dresses and other things.If anyone knows the dimensions,please tell me....

The exhibition in Rome must have been a dee-lite to see! From here there's a dress that's never been seen before. Does anyone have a picture of Pss. Grace in the dress with the different colored squares on it and the event she wore it at.

Do you mean the Dior Butterfly dress? She wore it in 1968 for some function and also on the Monte Carlo Rose TV special from 1968, I think it's in the videos thread here.

wow the pics were simply spec-ta-cular! PA simply looks smashing at the awards and you were right about the outfits they were all fabulous. Loved the red & black stripped outfit very chic & flattering for the wearer. Although we too had our fav outfits they were all truly beautifully picked and worn as well. You were right ms. belle and moore were exquisite outfits!! As well as the printed gowns. Truly a wonderful collection of people and outfits too. You coud see PA was truly excited to be receiving the award and if anyone deserved it he did for his mom was truly a great artist whom was very good at her craft.

Prince Albert was on hand to receive the Walk of Style award for his mother. He accepted the award from the actress Debra Messing. She and Cartier are the 14th and 15th recipients of the award which was presented in Beverly Hills, CA.

Short video of the Walk of Style award containig a nice tribute to Grace at the start. Look out for a short clip of Grace entering a room in a gorgeous ballgown with red sash - would love to see the whole clip or a colour photo of this gown.

Spoto sets the record straight on Grace Kelly

Nearsighted, asthmatic as a child, willful at times, Grace Kelly was so beautiful that she spellbound director Alfred Hitchcock for three films, including the classic 1954 thriller "Rear Window." Then she married a prince.
Biographer Donald Spoto, author of "High Society: The Life of Grace Kelly," hopes his new book sets the record straight about the Oscar-winning actress, who made 10 movies in four years before becoming the Princess of Monaco in 1956.
"After Grace's death," he says, "there was a spate of absolutely lubricious, mendacious fabrications about her sex life written by people who call themselves biographers. She was a red-blooded young woman who had boyfriends before she got married, but to present her as a woman of almost pathologic libertinism, a nymphomaniac, is absolute rubbish."
Spoto reports that contrary to popular perception, Kelly never intended to retire from movies altogether.
"When she married Prince Rainier, Grace had contractual obligations that she expected to fulfill, but as years went by, there were no roles for actresses like Grace Kelly or Audrey Hepburn. Instead you had Faye Dunaway in 'Bonnie and Clyde,' Elizabeth Taylor in 'Who's Afraid of Virginal Woolf?,' Anne Bancroft in 'The Graduate.' Grace was hungry to do more films, but this new, frank sexuality never appealed to her."
