Apparently the green dress is the one she wore to the White House visit in the early 60s. The lilac dress is definetly from High Society, there is even a film publicity photo with it.

Just a little note on the dress that Steph was wearing for the opening. If you think that she spent a fortune, think again. I saw it today in the shoping passage in Fontvielle in the summer sale for 20 Euros. It was reduced from 30. I have to say though that it looks better in the pics on Steph then what I saw in the window.

I sort of remember that to one of the balls she wore a catalogue dress from la redoute, so not unusual for Steph. And Charlotte as well wore I believe last year to the open air balett a catalogue dress. So it doesn't always have to be expensive...

The one she wore was pink with yellow flowers, it was to 2001's Animal Protection Society's Gala in July. Thanks for the info

Another nice exhibition:

Opening of the exhibition on Grace Kelly, organised by the monegasque Red Cross, at the Atrium of Casino. With Prince Albert II, M.Philippe Narmino, Mrs Rosine Sammori and Bettina Dotta a few days ago:

The final sentence of the article from the Daily Mail indicates the exhibition will be in London next year. Does anyone know if the dates/location have been released yet?

I don't think so and it is probably only parts of it. I think the V&A would be a good bet for a location though.

Yes, I can see the V&A would be the likely place. I just hope there's good publicity for it. Perhaps Caroline will open it

I'm sure it's been said before but it would be wonderful if there were eventually a permanent exhibition in Monaco. Have I imagined it or was a comment once made by either Albert or Caroline about housing Grace's gowns etc.? It was quite a while ago but I don't think I'm making it up. I can't bear to think of all that memorabilia being stored away never to be seen again. Could we start a petition? Or perhaps someone on the forum has friends in high places!

While it is a wonderful idea, sadly the gowns could not be put on permanent display. This is partly what happened to Grace's wedding gown. Because it was so popular it was left on display and the stress of the weight of the gown caused it to become fragile. This is true of most dresses if left on display not to mention that the fabric even under museum conditions would eventually fade. Perhaps a rotating display could be done of the gowns or that of other members of the family. Same is true for memorabilia. Objects fade under light so they too would have to be rotated. But exhibitions of Monaco's history could be done which would include these objects on a rotating basis as well.

Hi, I don't know if this is helpful, I was going to post it in the fashion thread -maybe someone has already? I know there is an exhibit at the V&A called "The Golden Age of Couture" at the V&A from (9/22 -1/6). I think it will have a lot of pieces from Christian Dior's early collections & many of Dior's contemporaries. More than 100+ items. This is printed in this months "Vanity Fair" magazine.

I don't know if they will have Grace's tribute at the same time or same place? The V&A does seem it would be the likely place to have it -isn't it on the Tribute website? They could have it at someplace like Christie's too I guess?

Also I'm sure it's been posted that Brooke Astor died a few days ago, but Charlie Rose is airing the whole interview he did with her when she was 94 (I think?) on Friday night on his show. Sorry I don't mean to go off topic, but this thread seems to be of people with this kind of interest. I think Grace would have been interested

Hello sandsla,
Grace and Brooke knew each other[cannot say how well] as did most of the people at the top end of society in those days.Brooke to me was a stronger lady than Grace.Interesting they both stood for some of the same ideals. They had strong values.Maybe Grace and Brooke are dishing the dirt.
I know Merv Griffin is now interviewing Grace about the International homage to her.Boy the fields of Elysium are certainly full these days.Certainly Grace would have been interested.....
Thanks for that....

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought that some/most of the dresses on display will auctioned off for charity (I forgot which one, sorry)?
