This spring the wardrobe of actress Grace Kelly will be on display at the V&A. Featuring dresses from her films High Society and Rear Window, as well as the gown she wore to accept her Oscar in 1955, the exhibition examines Grace Kellys Hollywood image and explores the evolution of her style as Princess Grace of Monaco.
Grace Kelly was an ambassador for classic simple American fashions such as shirtwaist dresses. She became known for her ladylike accessories such as neat hats, short white gloves and the original Hermès Kelly bag. The exhibition features outfits she wore to her first meeting with Prince Rainier in 1955 to her haute couture gowns of the 1960s and 70s by her favourite couturiers Christian Dior, Balenciaga, Givenchy and Yves St Laurent.
The wardrobe of Princess Grace is on loan to the V&A from the Palace Princier, Monaco through the Grimaldi Forum with additional loans from the Balenciaga Museum in Spain and private lenders. The exhibition is sponsored by Van Cleef & Arpels.
