edith head for lisa fremont

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?

season's greetings from the grimaldis



How precious is this holiday photo of the Grimaldi family? I’m loving that both Princess Grace and Princess Caroline are wearing what look like padded headbands... I wonder if they’ll ever come back in style? :)

on this day in history...



1929:
Grace Kelly, Academy-Award winning actress and the Princess consort of Monaco, was born
in Philadelphia to John Brendan "Jack" Kelly and Margaret Katherine Majer Kelly.

une promenade



I love this series of Grace Kelly on the streets of New York City with her mother and sister. They were taken just before she boarded the S.S. Constitution bound for Monaco for her wedding. I’m really into her oversized fur coat. I'm interested to know-- would you be daring enough to wear something like this, complete with a hat and kid gloves, today?

grace kelly + howell conant



Love this series of photos taken of Grace Kelly by her favorite photographer, Howell Conant. Her bikini is so stylish. I’ve been looking for a high-waited short/halter bikini just like it.. If you see any, you must let me know!
