Wonderful picture! This has a Venetian look to it; does anyone know where and why this photograph was taken?

It was taken at the masked ball held in the Cal. Rezzonica, Venice in 1966
Here's another picture - isn't her hair fantastic?

Magnificent Grace

Apparently as a joke to bolster Jack's spirits and according to the Judy Balabine Quine book The Bridesmaids-Jackie had Grace initially come in in a nurse"s outfit when he was in hospital.They were great friends. That is enough & all.

She's the Hollywood star turned royal who inspired an Hermčs handbag favoured by celebrities including Victoria Beckham and Sarah Jessica Parker.
Now for the first time, Grace Kelly fans will have the chance to peek into the wardrobe of the world's most notorious style icon.
Dresses worn by the popular 50's actress will go on display at London's V&A museum in April, examining Kelly's timeless appeal and glamorous image.
Divided into three sections, the exhibition will highlight Kelly's

Inside the Monaco Palace, 1975 by N. Parker.
Itīs the Grimaldi principal livingroom in the palace and thatīs how it was decorated when Grace was alive.

Grace was very classy and conventional women, but she had got a very modern and vanguardist taste for the interior design. Perhaps now she could be fan of minimal style.

I dislike this decoration and I am not sure it was Grace who decorated it....

yes Zubiaur, but you have to remember that itīs a house from the 70īs, a very different style from now.
Grace loved decoration and like "Grace Kelly: The Secret Lifes of a Princess by J. Spada" say, Princess Grace redecorated all the palace when she arrive Monaco. Her favourite store was Habitat (wich exists now).

Thanks for your pics!

Certainly the whole 70's looks never had appeal to me either even though we were in the midst of it all! Don't know why it just lacks a certain excitement that leaves a room as unexciting without remedy do you suppose?!

Although this room certainly is beautifully done the Georgian gilding is what saves this room! And, perhaps why the minimalist was chosen to counter balance the Georgian gilding but; oh-h-h those retro 70's lamps!

The beautiful lovely big windows and lighting make this room truly a striking room

You know? If I could define the Grace Kelly in a song Iīd use "No Happy Ending" of Mika. Here you can see a video very emotive, I wanted to cry...

While Pss. Grace's dress on the hanger looked okay. The outfit really came to life when Pss. Grace had the outfit and the hat on in the background when they took the picture. It was fabulous it was a very lush garden setting and with the dress and hat it was wonderful.

Naturally Cheryl Ladd did a stunning job in the movie portrayal of Pss. Grace and the outfit too is my favorite. The studio did a wonderful job of providing the Clothes of the movie

I would say that this dress is my favourite from Grace's life as an actress.
It's hard to find something resembling... I have always wanted to have this kind of the dress.

i like it, but it isnt my favourite. She always was stunning but my favourite dress was the lace white dress and the white one from the "catch a thief".
