Style Inspiration: Grace Kelly

   Almost a week ago in my post about "Dita Von Teese", I mentioned that I was starting a series on style paragons. :) This is the third post in that series, and of course, it is about Grace Kelly. Grace Kelly, an American actress, embodied timeless elegance, class, and grace. Please enjoy this snippet of her beautiful style! =) (Note: the links below the photos are for copyright purposes only. Thank you!)
This is my absolute favorite photo of Grace...
it was taken the day before her wedding to
Prince Ranier of Monaco. (Yes, she married a
Prince!! How romantic is that?! ;) I can't help
but gush over the modesty of her dress.... =)

Hats are truly one of the greatest accessories of all time. :)

Her coat is so gorgeous..... Has anyone else noticed that pearls
are always her accessory? ;)

If you read my post about
"Head-scarves", you may remember
this photo, but I decided to
put it in anyway. :)

This is the dress she wore in "High Society", the
last film before her marriage. :) Rather lovely, don't
you think? ;) bramblewoodfashion.blogspot.com
I really want this dress. It is so classy and modest!
*Sigh* The dresses they produce today are so pathetic
compared with something as lovely as this! ;)

Grace Kelly made the birkin bag famous. It looks so lovely...
and it is so pricey!

sort of person! :)

*sigh* I had to finish on a pink photo! ;)
Wasn't her style lovely? I must emulate her timeless elegance and class, while learning from her stunning style. :) *sigh* I am a LONG way away from having a style anywhere near as beautiful as her... :P
God bless!

I love Grace Kelly! She was such a beautiful lady, so elegant and feminine. I loved her films too. I sometimes wish women still dressed like this.

fredericaknits said...

Lovely post! Her style is great. Such feminine clothing.

Mary said...

Wow! She is a beautiful woman, I love that big hairdo with the corkscrews...I wonder how long it took to do??;)
God bless!!!

Southern Belle said...

I totally agree Gabrielle! I wish women still dressed in this gorgeous style... ;)
Thank you, fredericaknits.=)
I wonder too.... I'm sure she had millions of people waiting on her and doing her make-up and nails and all those hairstyles! She got pretty unusual with them during the 1960s... she did her hair up in so many little braids. :)

Sara said...

Love all of the vintage pics! Thank you for following me! :)

Southern Belle said...

It is really I who should be thanking you! Your blog is *amazing* :) I am so encouraged by it!

Sterling said...

Your blog is amazing. But add Grace Kelly to it....oh my gosh!! makes it 10x better!! Oh-I like Audrey Heburn 2!! (Hint hint) :)

Southern Belle said...

Thank you so much Sterling!! Grace Kelly = incredibly fantastic. Audrey Hepburn will be coming soon! :)

Ruthven said...

while I like her ok and like her style a lot, she was actually a totaly homewrecker. not classy there. but at least, unlike Marilyn Monroe and Liz Taylor (queen homewreckers), she kept a clean image and was still classy style wise.
