My fascination with Grace Kelly really knows no bounds. Not only was she an amazing beauty, a divine actress, but the little girl princess fairy tale come to life—at least from the outside. Where would Betty Draper get her style inspiration, if not from Princess Grace? Hilary Alexander reveals in today's Telegraph that starting this April the Victoria & Albert Museum in London will host an exhibition of her beautiful clothing. The items will be divided into three sections starting with her movie star days at MGM and Paramount, including pieces like the black dress in Rear Window, created by Edith Head who ran Paramount's wardrobe department. The second section will focus on all the clothing made for her wedding to Prince Rainier. And the third will showcase the couture creations worn during her time as Princess of Monaco. And of course the original 'Kelly' bag will be there. It sounds absolutely mouth-watering and has me hoping that something takes me London's way this spring.
