The Queens of Elegance: Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly backstage at the 27th Academy Awards in 1956. Grace was there to present the Best Actor Oscar (as she had won the Best Actress Award the year before). This was her last public Hollywood appearance before her marriage.
Real princesses always wear sleeves so why do we all go for strapless?
Location: Somewhere in the middle of the River Po Valley, Italy
I just viewed some pic of Grace's on a mag, where she was advertising a spray dust remover. It's very strange to see her clad as an ordinary housewife. Still classy though. I regret not owing a scanner:(
To Catch A Thief - Most Definitely!!!!! I love the sharp dialogue and the looks between Cary Grant and Grace Kelly - lots of inuendo and leaves much to the imagination of the viewer. Her outfits were just gorgeous especially today and so feminine! Definitely a classic movie with two great actors!

Autographed Picture of Grace Kelly and Alec Guinness
A still from the film The Swan, starring Alec Guinness as Prince Albert and Grace Kelly as Princess Alexandra. The characters are from a play by Molnar, and should not be confused with the son and daughter-in-law of Queen Victoria. A few months after this film was released in 1956, Grace Kelly ascended the throne of Monaco to become Princess Grace.
Prince Albert:Your father used to call you his swan, so I am told. I think that's a good thing to remember. Think what it means to be a swan. To glide like a dream on the smooth surface of the lake, and never go to the shore. On dry land, where ordinary people walk, the swan is awkward, even ridiculous. When she waddles up the bank she painfully resembles a different kind of bird, n'est-ce-pas? Princess Alexandra: A goose. Prince Albert: I'm afraid so. And there she must stay, out on the lake; silent, white, majestic. Be a bird, but never fly; know one song but never sing it until the moment of death. And so it must be for you, Alexandra. Cool indifference to the staring crowds along the bank. And the song? Never.
