Grace Kelly is one of the greatest style icons of the 20th Century. She exuded a glamorous sophistication, which was only emphasized by her roles as Hitchcock's favourite ice-cool blonde. After starting her career as a model she became an actress at age 22. Amongst others, she starred in 3 Hitchcock movies: Dial M for Murder
(1954), Rear Window
(1954) and To Catch a Thief
(1955). Her last movie was the fabulous High Society
in 1954 with Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra before she retired from acting to marry Prince Rainier III of Monaco. She tragically died in a car accident in Monaco (the crash is rumoured to been on the same stretch of road featured in 'To Catch a Thief') at the age of 52. Grace Kelly's style perfectly encapsulates the lady-like chic of the 1950s. She was always immaculately turned out, and impeccably feminine. I've picked my favourite Grace Kelly style dresses to share with you today, if you fancy stealing a little of her enduring style. Just pair any of these gorgeous vintage 1950s dresses with some delicate kitten heels, a string of pearls and some little white gloves and you'll be marrying a prince in no time (probably)...
