Fashion Icon: Grace Kelly

You would think I was born in the fifties by the time you finish reading this piece. I have heard so much of fashion icons and their timeless classic styles that I decided to venture into their world and capture what it means to have timeless and classic styles. Grace Kelly is one of those with such elegance and and exquisite style amongst Katherine Hepburn and Audrey Hepburn. I searched through the net to read more about this iconic beauty and in short, this is what I could come up with without going into toomuch details. Whatever you want to read about iconic beauties, you will find plenty of it on the internet, but without wasting your time, have a quick look at the Princess of Monaco’s timeless elegance.

Princess Grace Kelly is my third silhouette style icon because of her undeniable American elegance, her spirit, and the fact that Hermes named one of the world’s most covetable handbags after her. She embodied timeless American style with an exquisite taste in elegance, sophistication and classic style. She was a pretty girl with a beguiling innocent look. Her Style is remembered most of all for her patrician poise, her sensuality and dignified elegance. From an American actress to Princess of Monaco, Grace Kelly exude grace and charm in her famous cinched waists, full skirts, fitted tops, pearls, and classic Kelly bag. Her memorable fashion moments in the movie Rear Window was iconic, Sleek and stylish. All of her outfits possess elegance yet are demure and sleek at the same time, with fancy fabrics and pearl accents. She had style. Princess Grace was and always will be one of the most fashionable and elegant women in history.

One important note in her style choices is that she chose clothing based on the style and quality not because of a designer label. If you adopt one philosophy when it comes to fashion. Make sure you choose the garments that you love and ditch worrying about what label made it. Many of her most well-known outfits were created by costume designers at MGM. She loved clothes with flattering lines, tailored details and a perfect fit. Grace’s style is that she really had fun with accessories. The Princess is known for her belted tiny waist, elegant gloves,pearls and glamorous sunglasses.

Her wedding dress has been copied and recreated by the likes of the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton and Nicole Ritchie. Many people have been inspired by her, should I be inspired by these ensembles too? One thing is for sure, from everything I read about Grace Kelly, concerning style, She was adventurous, she took risks, She was independent, she was a real woman who showed her true colours and for these reasons, I too, joined many others as her fan.
Are you a fan of Grace Kelly styles? What do you think about her styles on and off screens?

If your evening dress is a stark stunner (or has a lot of embellishment), one single showstopping accessory, like Grace Kelly’s earrings, is all you need.
