Synonymous with cool elegance and impeccable good taste, Grace Kelly remains a style icon of the twentieth century.
This book is the first to explore exclusively Grace Kelly's personal style and how she carefully cultivated her public image through dress.
The three sections, looking at Grace Kelly as an actress, bride and princess, introduce her unrivalled wardrobe, from spectacular film costumes, meticulously tailored suits and American casual wear, to glamorous ballgowns designed by couturiers such as Givenchy, Balenciaga and Dior.
A fascinating range of illustrations, including film stills, dress details and formal portraits, accompany H.
Kristina Haugland's engaging text as it charts Grace Kelly's unique influence on twentieth century fashion.
