It is all about Grace Kelly's style this season. From the runway at Prada and Marc Jacobs to multiple award winning TV series Mad Men, Kelly's timeless elegance has become ubiquitous. From actress to princess, Grace Kelly's style evolved harmoniously to coincide with her personal life.
Oleg Cassini, a Hollywood costume designer who was briefly engaged to Grace Kelly in the 40s claims he "created the Grace Kelly look"... he helped define her style and convinced her to stop dressing like a school teacher, in frumpy ensembles and thick rimmed glasses and to adopt a more figure fitting look to show off her perfect figure and compliment her beautiful looks. Cassini told People Magazine "She neutralised her beauty because she wanted to be thought of as an actress. I told her she could be both. She had to put a little sex in her clothes."
Grace Kelly's style is just that: a Femme Fatale with the rigor of a school teacher. She doesn't play on her sex appeal as openly as Marilyn Monroe, she plays with the forbidden, the hidden, the subtle hints. Below you will find some inspiration to help you get the Grace Kelly look... and which MCM bag to complete it!
