I believe she and Pierre must now be wearing contacts all the time because neither is ever seen with glasses anymore. I believe the same of Andrea, because sometimes he had been photographed wearing glasses in the past, but it's been many years since I have seen it.
....and I thought she looked GOOD in glasses!!!! Now that it's been brought up I'm going to have to go back in threads and find those pics....

Lea, I think I can help you find them by giving you the timeframes I remember. She wore glasses during her New york trip with Eugenie, in October 2003. She wore glasses outside her school in September 2003. That is all I can think of at the moment. There may be other times you can find. She looked adorable with the glasses, I agree. At each of these times, she was wearing a different pair. In New York, the frame was black. In the school pics, the glasses were different. I don't know how to describe them.

They do look a lot like Charlotte's. Maybe Caroline found them on sale?

Are you sure? Grace didn't wear glasses all the time. So she must have worn contacts and I don't think there were contacts in the 50ies and 60ies and 70ies . . . . and 80ies?

Yep, she was

Grace was indeed very short sighted. I remember reading in one of her biographies that she hated her glasses and usually went without and suffered from headaches from not being able to see.

She did wear glasses (a pair of tortoiseshell, I believe), just not that often in public.

I can't believe Grace was that vain! It's a little bit superficial isn't it? On the one hand I can understand her because most glasses were quite ugly in the past. But if she had headaches because of not wearing glasses . . . .

Well I would say in that case it was vanity, but I should wear my glasses all the time, but I don't. I rarely wear my contacts either, just because I am really lazy and am used to my short sightedness and don't mind it. I won't ever be having laser eye surgery. Obviously I wear my glasses or contacts (the whole time) when I am somewhere I don't know (to look at street signs etc). I don't get headaches though. With Grace I gather it must have been vanity; putting up with headaches etc. Doesn't Caroline need glasses as well? I remember seeing pictures of her, some years ago, with them on. Perhaps she now wears contacts.

Glasses of that time weren't so ugly as you think, Coco, and besides Crace looked nice in them. I saw her video&pics. If she hated them it was her own idea how she should look, and it's a matter of complexes, but glasses did not make her less attractive.

Yes. Grace kelly is known for having been very short sighted. She even joked about that, telling that since she refused to wear glasses she often missed out people greeting her. Anyway, there are quite a lot of pictures of Grace wearing glasses, they're mostly from her late years of life.

I saw a video of the Oscars a couple of days ago, and there was Grace in the audience before she received her Oscar for "Country Girl", and she was wearing glasses. She looked wonderful... I think they really suit her! Unfortunately, I can't find the video again! :(

By the way, I love your avatar Coco! Could you perhaps post the picture please? Caroline look gorgeous!

Oh yeah, near-sightedness is a genetic trait. And unfortunately (for me at least) becomes worse with each successive generation.
