wow great pics!! some of these are new to me. Don't you just love jimmy stewart and William holden say he died rather mysteriously didn't he?? Anyhoo Pss. Grace always looked so wonderful in those pics.

I loved the fashions from both Rear Vew & High Society which are two of my favorites. Just found a dress styles that are similar to some of those outfits too! The one on the Swan set was terrific a great show as well love that Olivier! She had all the wonderful leading men movies it seems must have been great fun for her.

The one from The Swan was a remarkable peek at the back workings of a movie. It's always fun to see pics like that.

Darling, your pics are really wonderful, i love it!
But only a little bit correction, the picture called "With Oleg Cassini on the premiere of "To Catch a Thief" isnīt right. Remember that she went out with Cassini only in 1954. That photo is from 1954, the year of "Rear Window", itīs in the premier of the film in New York.
When she was filming "To Catch a Thief" in France she was going out with Jean Pierre Aumont, do you remember? the so handdsome french actor who was with her during all the film filming. They were together in 1955, the "Great Year" of Grace.

Thatīs all, I hope you donīt mind this checking.

Thanks for your correction. I thought it was 'To Catch a Thief' premiere. I'm sorry for my fault. :)

Those pictures you posted are beautiful! <3

I know Jean Pierre-Aumont, was he dating Grace or something?
By the way, I have some pictures of Grace with him.

Picture a woman bereft of make-up coming down to breakfast in her rollers. This is a woman who loves gardening - and not just pottering about with a watering can, but the heavy digging part too.
She likes the circus, and enjoys the company of bohemians and eccentrics. She moves in the most elite circles, but is proud of the ‘commoners’ she calls friends. She could drive any car, but chooses to pootle about in a London taxi, ‘for fun’.
You might be surprised to discover that this intriguing creature is none other than Grace Kelly - aka Princess Grace of Monaco - a woman known the world over for her poise and elegance, but not exactly renowned for a laugha-minute reputation.
Devastatingly beautiful, and regal to match, Vogue once dubbed her ‘as remote as a Snow Queen’.

Did Grace Kelly have links with a secret cult? - Scotland on Sunday (01/04/2010).

It does look like something Bud Fraker would have done but this link says it was Erwin Blumenfeld, a celebrated fashion photographer.

Here is another pose from that session which appeared on the cover of "Cosmopolitan".
