If I were to ever be granted three wises, I know that one of them would be to commission Edith Head to design my entire wardrobe. Above are her personal watercolor + pencil sketches for three of Grace Kelly’s costumes as Lisa Fremont in "Rear Window" - they were auctioned off at Christie’s this past November, fetching upwards of $12,821. I've been dying to have a dress made just like the one in the third sketch for years! It seems very timely as ballet-inspired clothing is all the rage these days, don't you think?
