Grace Kelly Exhibition

The Grace Kelly exhibition at the V&A has been on for quite some time now, but being a busy bee i've only just had the opportunity to go! It was so beautiful. A tad small, But still got that daily dose of glamour to brighten my day!!

The exhibition starts off with dresses from her film career/public appearances from the 1950's. Including her own oscar! (which i was mesmerised by!)

I love the grecian wrap dress - which was a swimwear cover up for a scene in 'high society'.

Grace Kelly's Oscar and her Luggage. Marked with initials GBK.

The exhibition then goes on to her life from meeting Prince Rainer III of Monaco.

Vintage Christian Dior (which was Grace's favourite shop in New York for many years) and Vintage Balenciaga Jacket (Worn when She got back on from her honey moon to mask rumours of pregnancy!)

Herm├ęs 'Kelly' Bag.

A selection of Hat's from Grace Kelly's wardrobe. She famously accessorised her outfits with turbans, like the one picture above!

My favourite dress from the exhibition.

Definitely worth a visit if you haven't already and have an hour to spare! It's at the V&A in South Kensington, London.
