wishing i was in london...

this week...i'm wishing i could be in london...not only because it is a lovely place to visit...but...because the victoria and albert museum is featuring the fabulous wardrobe of grace kelly...

no one has a more fitting name then the lovely grace kelly...as an actress, princess and style icon...she was "grace" in every sense of the word...



this months vanity fair issue is all about the lovely grace...be sure to click and read her amazing story...

the exhibition in london will include:
The spectacular wardrobe of Grace Kelly is on display at the V&A. Tracing the evolution of her style from her days as one of Hollywoods most popular actresses in the 1950s and as Princess Grace of Monaco, the display presents over 50 of Grace Kelly's outfits together with hats, jewellery and the original Herm├Ęs Kelly bag. Dresses from her films, including High Society, are on show as well as the gown she wore to accept her Oscar award in 1955. These are accompanied by film clips and posters, photographs and her Oscar statuette. The display also includes the lace ensemble worn by Grace Kelly for her civil marriage ceremony to Prince Rainier in 1956 and 35 haute couture gowns from the 1960s and 70s by her favourite couturiers Dior, Balenciaga, Givenchy, and Yves St Laurent.

and here is my favorite pic of grace kelly...grace and class to perfection...
