Great photos of Grace with the "artichoke" hair do. I recall reading an article in which Alexander said he had created that hair do for Elizabeth Taylor, and that his 3 favorite customers and close friends were: Princess Grace, Elizabeth Taylor, and Marie Helene Rotschild. He said he would call them to their houses and that he made a tall hair do for Princess Grace which required lots of gold wire that she had to go this Costume Ball in 1965 on the back of a truck. Obviously he's wrong because I think it was 1969's Rose Ball (photos here in this page) by the description. What do you think?

I also thought the other day, don't you think Princess Grace and Elizabeth Taylor's friendship grew apart in the late 70s and 80s? They were photographed a lot in the late 60s and early 70s, but she didn't attend Caroline's wedding like all of Grace's Hollywood friends did, then she didn't attend the funeral, or other parties in Monaco.

This great work belongs to Howell Conant. There was a collaboration between the pro Howell and Princess Grace. (1965)

I think that Grace and Elizabeth were friendly towards one another, but they weren't close friends the way Grace and Ava Gardner were. There was mutual respect and admiration (Grace even conceded to friends that Elizabeth was unbearably beautiful during Grace's 40th bday party in Monte Carlo where Liz wore the Krupp diamond for the first time) but I think it is the same kind of relationship Grace had with, say, Audrey Hepburn, Ingrid Bergman, and the other stars of her Hollywood years.

Grace was an expert on public relations, and I feel that she kept in touch with all these stars so that on huge occasions in Monaco, she can count on them to visit and give more glitter to her events.

On page 301 of "Once Upon A Time", the palace chaplain, Father Voellinger, narrated one day that he was playing chess with Prince Albert in the palace, and Grace and a woman wearing a yellow miniskirt and a huge diamond around her neck walked in. After the introductions and pleasantries, Grace and the woman left. Albert then laughed at him because the priest did not recognize Elizabeth Taylor. This was in the 60s.

Great photo you posted on the previous page Zubiaur, she's wearing again the dress from 1968's Red Cross Ball.

I completly agree with you Roy on Grace's friendship with Elizabeth, it wasn't as close as Ava Garnder or Maria Callas'. Looking back at the photos from The Night Of 100 Stars back in 1982, you see Grace and Elizabeth looking friendly but not so close. Without a question Grace was an expert on public relations and even though maybe it's not the appropiate thread to discuss this, I think this is something that nowadays the family lacks. You see Grace in the 60s mainly doing all these TV shows and stuff to promote Monaco worldwide, the attendance of Hollywood stars and important contemporany figures in all fields (sports, medical, arts etc) to the big events in Monaco; something we don't see anymore or rarely.

I have just noticed that the outfit Princess Caroline wore at 1993 National Day is the same Princess Grace wore some years ago

You can see it in these pictures, and I think the dress Caroline wore at the Princess Grace Foundation Gala in NY in 2006 is this blue one

This is the blue dress I meant

You are right,ikers .But in my opinion, Caroline chooses the "ugliest" dresses of Grace.

Very observative Ikers! I think what's amazing is that the dresses fit Princess Caroline well, especially the blue one her mother wore when she was 39, and Caroline at almost 51 and after 4 kids!

Animal rights activists wouldn't agree with you about that, ZUBIAR

Here's a pic of Grace at the inauguration of an exhibition in Monaco
in 1975 :
