Manny P. here…


   Dresses that Grace Kelly wore in screen classics such as High Society and Rear Window are now showcased at a museum in London as part of a new exhibit.  Grace Kelly: Style Icon at the Victoria and Albert Museum will display the wonderfully stylish wardrobe of the Oscar winning actress-turned-princess. Exhibits include the gown Kelly wore to accept her Academy Award in 1955, as well as, the outfit she draped to her first meeting with Prince Rainier III of Monaco (her future husband) later that year.

   The museum exhibition opened this past weekend, and highlights Kelly’s enduring appeal. The show will trace the timeline to include her style as Princess Grace of Monaco, with haute couture gowns by Dior, Givenchy, and Yves St Laurent.

   Kelly died in 1982 in a car crash. She was only 52. Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History salutes the iconic: Grace Kelly!
