It's funny that they chose the black dress. PG always hated that dress.

Yes - when you think of all the fantastic outfits they could have chosen. It might be to do with difficulty in getting permission for reproduction of the outfits.

Thanks for that LovelyKate. Slightly creepy, but just shows how Grace shames the rest, hehe.

I wonder if Dior got the permission to use Grace Kelly's image from the Palace or from MGM ...

^ Maybe from both? I asked myself the same question when I saw the video. She's so gracious, and luminous, that yes, as you said, she shames the rest!!

I don't think that Grace shames the rest of those stunning women. She's beautiful and charming, granted, but Marlene Dietrich is, either.

Thanks for this info. Please let it be some substantial actress to play the part, not some January Jones type or any other blond starlet.

It will be difficult to find someone that can pull off the role of Grace Kelly. Let's hope they'll find the right actress.

Princesse Grace, her daily life and wardrobe

Hello Everyone,

I am a student currently carrying out a research project on the late Princess Grace of Monaco looking at the knitwear she wore as part of her daily life, particularly her famed twinsets. I was wondering if I could reach out to the forum to benefit from your knowledge in terms of where may be profitable to carry out picture research on the web, and in institutions in Monaco and around the world, and even if you are willing to share any imagery yourselves please.

Thank you very much for your time,
Ben.

Well there are a lot of pics here if you check out the archive fashion threads & other threads related to Grace in the Monaco forums (actress etc). Also the Fashion Spot contains loads of pics

Grace Kelly's favourite photographer

Thought this was very interesting. There's a lot of info - and it's true! All of the iconic shots of Grace were taken by this man:

I think that the focus of this film will be very interesting -- not just your usual Grace Kelly biography that one can watch on cable TV. To see how Princess Grace supported her husband in his conflict with France and give it the same tone as "The King's Speech" will be a very refreshing approach to portraying how important she has always been to the principality.
