Great pics Zubiaur, some I've never seen or they're different versions of some we've seen here. I noticed however you posted 2 or 3 pics that are from my site, I would appreciate if you post that they're from my site next time.

Thanks for the information about the Marie Antoinette ball, do u know when was it held? There's some footage of it on youtube in Grace's A&E biography. I always had thought it had been a Rose Ball (one of the lost Rose Balls).

The Ball u're refering to Iceflower must be the Century of Monte Carlo Ball held in 1966...there's footage of it on youtube too on Grace's TF1 special.

How unusual to find a picture of Grace wearing spectacles at a big occasion. Sarah Bradford writes in her biography of Princess Grace that Grace tried to avoid wearing them in public because she thought it would disappoint her public. According to Bradford the first time she tried using contact lenses for an important event at the Seville Red Cross Ball, someone (possibly a maid or Grace herself) dropped them out of their cases & replaced them so that the left lens was in the case for the right eye & vice versa. Her eyes hurt & watered so much that she couldn't see. She never wore them again. So I guess most of the time she must have relied on Rainier to help her out.

find a pic of her dress - the pic reminds me of the

This is the photo of the marvellous yellow ball gown that wore Princess Grace in a Ball in the chateau of Frontenac:

The pictures of Princess Grace are marvelous! Thank you for posting the pics, Zubiaur. There are a few of the pictures I've never seen before. I hope you will post more pics. Princess Grace was a beautiful, regal princess.

You've turned up some more gems here. I haven't seen a picture of Grace at the 1960 Cannes film festival before - only the 1972 visit with Hitchcock. Thank you

We love them, Zubiaur, as always
You have some real jewels in your collection, several have been
posted before, but mostly in a different quality or with water-
marks so that I did not delete any of them so far That
first pic in your last post - the additional pic from the ball -
is absolutely wonderful, a great profile pic that shows all of
her stunning beauty.

Here are two pics of Grace as "Red Riding Hood"
1. In her winterholidays in 1969
2. In Barcelona in 1977

** Grace 1969 ** Grace 1977 **

Iceflower : Grace looks like a schoolgirl in those yellow skirts! oh so Cute!!



Here is a documentary that was recently added on YouTube about Grace Kelly as a Princess. I actually can't speak French but it was definitely a gem!! It has twelve parts ; this is the first!



Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you have a great Holiday!

p/s: I'm new here but I Love Grace Kelly! She's my icon and idol!
