The Grace Kelly Fandom Project
I nominate Everything Grace as Queen of Grace Colorizations!
Julia has been spreading the Grace Love on Tumblr for quite some time now. Her appreciation of fellow Grace bloggers is always huge, reblogging and commenting on our posts. And she has been dedicating herself to colorizations of black and white pictures of Grace Kelly - what a delight!
Thanks for sharing your talent with us, hollyjacks! And it’s your turn now to nominate a fellow Grace blogger as "Queen/King of…"
An Yves Saint Laurent dress belonging to Princess Grace was showcased at Yves Saint Laurent: The Retrospective at the Denver Art Museum from March 25 - July 8, 2012.
I was pretty excited to capture the first photo on top with my phone.
I suspect that the black flower piece is detachable and that Princess Grace is wearing the Yves Saint Laurent dress (or some variant of it) in the bottom two photos at two separate events in the 1960s (a charity event in 1965, and Royal Ascot in 1966, respectively).
YSL exhibitions which displayed this cocktail dress designed especially for Princess Grace by YSL in 1964.
The hat in the exhibit was different from the one in sketch…….dress was very stunning…to date I have not seen a photo of Princess Grace wearing this design……
I actually saw the Denver exhibit in person - it was INCREDIBLE. And I believe I have identified the dress. I’ll post later when I find the pictures and have time!
"As a gorgeous blonde starlet, she [Grace Kelly] marked herself out as different by way of her cool, somewhat distant air. Half a century later, there is something of the Kelly lineage in Rosamund Pike, the young actor with the cool-drink-of-water good looks…" — The Guardian
Rosamund was definitely my Grace dreamcast. :’( Though, let’s face it, the film certainly wasn’t anything to be proud of.
Alfred Hitchcock and Catherine Deneuve, 1969
I always wondered why Catherine Deneuve was never in a Hitchcock film since she fit the cool blonde leading lady criteria, but apparently he did have her in mind for a project in 1979 that was ultimately cancelled.
