Grace Kelly: Style Icon forthcoming display at the V&A

Grace Kelly style icon exhibition

If you are a fan of the classic style of Grace Kelly, you'd better put the dates 17 April until 26 September in your diary when the V&A Museum will be hosting the display Grace Kelly: Style Icon.

The show features fifty of Kelly's outfits ranging from her time as a Hollywood starlet in the 1950s to her role as Princess Grace of Monaco. The dresses include costumes from her famous films such as High Society and Rear Window, as well as clothes that illustrate her off-screen style, and will be supplemented with photographs and film footage. The display also includes perhaps her most lasting contribution to the world of fashion, the original Hermes Kelly bag.

Admission is £6 which sounds a pretty reasonable fee for vintage film and fashion fans.
