What in God's name is she wearing? It looks as if two chickens decided to roost on her head...not the best pic of Grace...:p

Wonderful pics, you found, Ianna!!
And to Monacos and Ianna: I'm always annoyed when
magazines change the backround of a pic just in order
to claim they had new pics no other magazine has...

So do I! Also when they write something over the picture, put a picture in 2 pages, or cut a picture and put it over another. I don't like it when they do that because they just spoilt the picture!

Etiquette guru Letitia Baldridge recalled that the White House staff thought Grace's hat looked like a fancy shower cap. Princess Grace was wearing Givenchy that day just as President Kennedy guessed (It was a wild and VERY lucky guess). Jacqueline Kennedy, being a very elegant and style-conscious person herself, decided to host a luncheon instead of a state dinner for the Monagasque couple because she was afraid Grace would upstage her. Also, to help pronounce Rainier name, the staff would refer to him as "Prince Reindeer." JFK said to Ms. Baldridge that they would have to stop that because he actually called Rainier "Prince Reindeer"! Letitia Baldridge was Mrs. Kennedy's White House social secretary and wrote a book In the Kennedy Style: Magical Evenings in the Kennedy White House. Prince Rainier and Princess Grace's visit was one of the events described in the book.

Oh! So sorry! Thanks for correcting me!

I was going through Getty Images and I found this pic of Grace and Rainier. I had no idea they were at Juan Carlos and Sofia's wedding! I wish I could find a better picture, but to no avail. :( Her outfit looks quite beautiful, as always.

She is absolutely lovely, I've read about three of her biographies, and they all mentioned that Grace was more than willing to give up the career life for a family. Also, it was mentioned that sometime in the 70's she wanted to take up a role in which Rainier was furious about.
By the way, does any one have a link to see the video of the wedding? It was a deal that Grace made in exchange for breaking her contract with MGM

this is the only one I've found so far: http://www.liketelevision.com/web1/classictv/weddings/ If you click on the link that says Prince Rainier and Grace Kelly (i believe) on the right, it only less than a minute and only shows you a few clips, but it's all I've found so far and you need Real Player to watch it. I've been looking and I'll let you know if I find something.

Nice pics, GömdNatt, thanks!!
I found one pic with Grace and Albert in Lourdes.
It was always said that she became more and
more religious through the years. That pic reminded
me of that..

Great pics Gomdatt and Ice :) The pic you found Gomdatt is super rare, in fact I hadn't seen it before, I imagine it is from the religious ceremony because at the wedding banquet she was wearing a long dress and Rainier a white suit.

If I'm not mistaken in the late 70s Grace was member of 20th Century Fox's Board of Directors according to what I read in a book.
