America’s sweetheart Grace Kelly found herself in a real life fairy tale when she fell in love with Prince Rainer III of Monaco. He was completely enthralled by the beautiful and acclaimed actress.
Even before she adorned this iconic dress Kelly was a fashion icon, for her unique style shown in her movies, with many women in that day trying to get the ‘Grace Kelly look’. It was in fact MGM studio that help facilitate the iconic dress for her. The designer chosen was academy award winner Helen Rose, who also had a working relationship with Kelly and knew her style.
The concept was the fantasy – lace, silk, taffeta and tulle. The materials were mixed together in a simple design but with a heavy focus on detail. Complimented with a wreath topping headpiece and pearl-encrusted prayer book. This masterpiece is arguably the most famous wedding dress in history.
