Hi All,

This is my first time in the forum and I hope to be an active members as everyone are...I'm currently like the lovestory of Prince Rainier and Grace Kelly very much and therefore, I had order Grace Kelly's autobiography and 2 books about Rainier and Grace. However, I don't think there is Prince Rainier's autobiography at all.

Anyway, I love how their story goes and didn't like the way it ended but I'm so happy to know that Prince Rainier was very devoted to Grace because he didn't remarried and mostly, he always mentioned her whenever there is a tribute or congratulate in order for him. I mean, he's a pretty darn prince charming isn't he?

I'm actually reading Grace by Robert Lacey and I don't know how true it is because I don't like how Lacey mentioned that the Prince was violent (like playing tennis and hitting the ball at Grace...like really? ) anyway and Grace having affair with other young men and particuly the young director that she was cooperative one of the film with? Any one want to clarify on this for me?

Another launch in another city -
Vanity Fair
I wonder if Albert & Charlene may attend a related engagement as they are currently in LA & there appears to be a pre- Oscar link.

Thanks Iceflower. I hadn't connected the launch with the latest pics on the Carlene fashion page, &7 somehow the current events page had completely passed me by! Do you think this means that the nominees for an Oscar all received an item of jewellery in their famous goodie bags?

You are most welcome! I don't know if there's a connection, I'm also not an expert for the Oscar gifts
But as you'll see in the current events thread the couple attends the Oscars for reasons other than that.

For the Oscars itself we have an extra thread in the news section, maybe someone over there knows
more about the gift bags

Princess Grace was included -- rightfully so -- on TIME Magazine's All-Time Top 100 Fashion Icons in Fashion since 1923. The list was revealed today.

The established knitwear company Pringle have an ongoing research project one part of which is a current exhibition of previously unseen items belonging to Princess Grace at the National Museum of Monaco. see links below.

The Princess Caroline thread has pics of her visiting the exhibition.

What do you guys think about this ? I'm glad that at least, it's an absolute A-lister who can act.

Ironically though, Charlize Theron in the new Vogue U.K. cover is so styled as Grace Kelly.

Charlize gives me more of a Grace Kelly feel yet she also reminds me of a happier Charlene. Perhaps Nicole has more of the cold, distant, allure of Grace.

Besides being an Oscar winner, Nicole Kidman as Princess Grace is a more inspired casting move than Naomi Watts as Princess Diana in the biographical film currently being made.

An actress who looks like Grace and could play her, if she was a better actress, is Tamain Egerton.

Sorry but I can't see the resemblance between Princess Grace and Tasmin Egerton. Can you explain why you think she would be a good choice?

From St Trinians to playing Princess Grace. Ha, I think not.

It's Prince Rainier and Princess Grace's 56th Wedding Anniversary today.

The principality was never the same.
