Inside Grace’s wardrobe…
The Bagonghi bag by Italian designer Roberta di Camerino. The Bagonghi bag, made of soprarizzo velvet with black leather handles and trim and a stamped Meridiana design in the center, was inspired by 19th-century doctor cases.
Grace was widely photographed with the Bagonghi bag on an official visit to Italy in 1959. She also carried it, and another similar bag, in the ’70s (bottom photos).
From Ray Martin’s interview with Audrey Hepburn, 1989:
Ray: Audrey, who did you admire when you worked in Hollywood?
Audrey: Speaking about beauty, I admired Elizabeth Taylor, Ava Gardner and Grace Kelly.
Ray: And did you think these ladies were different from you?
Audrey: Absolutely. I mean they were real beauties.
First of all, thank you gatabella for sharing this —do you have a link to the rest of the interview? I’d love to read. Second, Audrey you were a real beauty, too!
Unfortunately I don’t have the rest of the interview, I found just this part in the community dedicated to Grace on vk.com. I searched for Ray Martin’s interview on the net and didn’t find any mention of it, strangely. However, the phrase is very much Audrey style, she always denied her beauty :)
You guys, I found this!
Thanks for sharing, gatabella. Audrey was the epitome of modesty. It was/is part of her tremendous appeal.
Great find! Thanks to both of you.
No disrespect to the bloggers who posted them is intended. I still love your blogs, but it is my opinion that Mel Gibson is a detestable character.
I felt uneasy as well. Same when I saw Chris Brown posing with Pauline Ducruet not too long ago…
