^Of course, She said in many interviews that she is considering making some movie and hoping to get back soon. Unfortunately, she died before anything happened. In my opinion, her job as princess did more 'good' things than her acting carrer. She was definitely beautiful actress, but let's face it, she was no Katherine Hepburn and her role in movies was rather to shine with her looks and refreshment. It think she a little stiff in her movies, though I like them very much! As a princess, she helped the others, did something for poor people. But what is most important she made a beatiful family and rebuilt Monaco with her connections, looks. Monaco is Grace Kelly!

I have a question. One of Princess Grace's biographies says that she's been through several miscarriages. Is it true? Could somebody tell me when those happened?Thanks.

I agree too.She had perfect factions,she was elegant,glamorous,she is an icon of style.She was a perfect princess ,a fairytale princess.
When I visited the exposition of Grace kelly,it was a dream come true...Her marvellous wedding dress,the jewels,her hats ,gloves and the ball dresses...She had an exquisite taste.If possible,I recommend to all her fans to visit the next expositions of Rome and London next year.It is a marvellous experience.Kind regards

Interesting picture iceflower; If you look at Rainier, you see that Stephanie's lips are a copy of his. Never seen it before. Do you agree?

As a Catholic consort to a reigning prince, wouldn't tradition dictate that Princess Grace would wear white when meeting the Pope?

That dress got so criticized because Grace herself did not like it. Accdg to biographies, it was the only one that was did not require ironing as there was no electricity in Cannes that day; thus, Grace had no choice but to wear it.

However, it is actually a great dress for this particular occasion. As the pictures are mostly black and white, the drama of the print was very spot on. Also, Grace further enhanced the bold floral print by wearing her headband with little flowers. This made her outfit appear more intentional than just being the accidental one.

Personally, I find it beautiful. Very 50's, of course, but when it is on a tall, slim, beautifully built Hollywood Queen, it sure acquires a certain magic.

Besides, I doubt if Grace really found this dress ugly. Why will you bring this to the Cannes Film Festival -- such a prestigious and public event?

Anyway, I think at this point of her Hollywood superstardom, Grace Kelly could do no wrong fashion wise

In my opinion ,it is beautiful.I have seen it in the Grace kelly exhibition and it has beautiful yellow and rose flowers and the rest is black.This is a good contrast of colours,of course, it is my opinion....

*Grace and Rainier having a conversation.. Grace was pregnant with either Caroline or Albert..

Thank you SatineCharm the first one is probably one of my all time favorites, you can sense their happiness and special magic, Grace looks so contented and in love.
There are few "cuddling" "huggy" "overly-affectionate" type photos of them, so these are extra special
welcome
