June 20th Fashion Parade: Get The Look: Grace Kelly

The cool, aristocratic charm of Grace Kelly was revered well before she became Princess Grace of Monaco. Sophistication, flawless natural beauty and a certain reserve give her look an iconic appeal to this day.


Characterized by unerring elegance, the actress-turned-princess was known for well-tailored suits, neat twinsets, full skirts, simple and effective evening gowns, pearls and long white gloves. She loved hats.


Grace's Helen Rose wedding gown made for a very royal wedding in 1956, when she married Prince Rainier of Monaco. Her namesake handbag came into being when Grace carried a Herm├Ęs bag to obscure her pregnancy months after her marriage.


See what Grace-worthy elegance the members of the Vintage Fashion Guild have in store...
