No institution does costume quite like the Victoria & Albert Museum.
Their latest entry in a long line of stellar exhibitions focus on the iconic style of Grace Kelly. Her look was cultivated by Hollywood, and came to represent a classic, understated vision of fashion. The exhibition examines the wardrobes she donned in film, the dresses made for her wedding, and the French haute couture required in her status as Princess of Monaco.
Male or female, style is style. At Selectism we can’t avoid appreciating true icons.
Grace Kelly: Style Icon runs to September 26, 2010.
