Grace Kelly’s Birthday

grace1

Grace Kelly was born on this day, November 12, 1929 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

If you were to name the most beautiful women who have ever lived, Grace Kelly would probably be high on the list.

As inspiration for this blog’s theme, we’d like to share some images of Grace.

Pictures of Charlotte Casiraghi – Modern Beauty

Charlotte Casiraghi, daughter of Princess Caroline of Hanover and Monaco, granddaughter of Grace Kelly, is growing up to be quite the beauty.

She is strikingly like her lovely mother, and sometimes when smiling, looks the picture of Grace Kelly but with brown hair.

At just 21 years old, she is emerging to be a role model of beauty and style.

Here are various photos I found around the Web:

Good genes run in the family.

Remembering Grace Kelly

Princess Grace Exhibition in Monaco

Prince Albert of Monaco and his sister Princess Stephanie attended the inauguration of an exhibition to mark the 25th anniversary of their mother’s death.

Grace Patricia Kelly was born in Philadelphia in 1929. She moved to New York to attend the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and worked as a model while in school. She went on to star in several movies directed by Alfred Hitchcock and won an Academy Award in 1954 for The Country Girl playing opposite Bing Crosby. In 1956 she left Hollywood to marry Prince Rainier of Monaco. They have three children, Caroline, Albert and Stephanie.

The exhibit features many of Grace Kelly’s dresses including her stunning wedding gown, a gift from MGM, designed by costumer Helen Rose.

The exhibit runs in Monaco until September 23 before it moves on to London.

The Art of Wearing Pearls

Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend but pearls will make you glow like moonlight.

There is something mysterious and alluring about pearls. Perhaps it is their lustre, perhaps it is because they come from the sea.

Pearls should always be worn in odd numbers of strands. Don’t wear a double strand, rather wear a single strand or a triple strand or more.

Opera length pearls can be wrapped multiple times around your neck or even tied across your shoulders to the straps of a plain black cocktail dress to make an interesting statement.

Many famous women have had great success with pearls. Here are a few:
