Every time I think of making an article about old glamour beauty I end up looking for images with Grace Kelly. Yes, I know I’m guilty! But who can blame me, I fell hopelessly in love with her and her style from the first time I laid my eyes on her – I can still see that old magazine my grandmother had and that lovely article about the Hollywood star that became princess of Monaco.
In part my love for wedding gowns and brides is due to her, who can truthfully say her wedding gown wasn’t picture perfect? Grace Patricia Kelly was born on the 12th of November 1929 and became a Hollywood house hold name in 1953 with Mogambo, where she played alongside Ava Gardner.
Grace remains a style icon to this very day, her poise and elegance have been admired and aimed for years and I can admit there’s no style icon I look up to with more fascination than Grace.
Italy for me is synonymous to Sofia Loren – this amazing woman captures the whole essence of this amazing Mediterranean country. Full of savory, energy and sensuality, Sofia Villani Scicolone was born in Rome on 20 September 1934. She rose to fame with Aida in 1953 and started using her famous name, Sofia Loren, during this period and in my opinion she’s one of the few actresses that managed to become better with the passing of the years.
To me Sofia is a proof that women are exactly as wine, becoming better and better with age. She took all that sensuality to new levels each year until she became the elegant and classy woman she is today. Every bride could take a drop of her optimism and positive energy and surround herself with it on her own magical day – by all means Sofia is a perfect FashionBride Icon.
Ava Lavinia Gardner was born on December 24 1922 , she was signed to a contract by MGM Studios in 1941. She became one of Hollywood’s leading actresses, considered one of the most beautiful women of her day. I remember Ava Gardner from Mogambo (1953) where she played along side Clark Gable and my beloved Grace Kelly. As all Hollywood icons Ava is an astonishing beauty that shocks with her sharp style and incredible grace.
Why a FashionBride Icon? Because she exudes glamour and she can be a great inspiration source to any bride; opt for her poise and elegance and don’t forget to add a drop of simplicity to your outfit.
The gowns I picked for this article are a great example of how Ava Gardner managed to impose her style no matter the gown she wore. Notice also her wedding gown ( she married Frank Sinatra in 1951 – her third and final marriage) – simple, quirky yet elegant and fun.
