It’s definitely a Grace Kelly dedicated month here at FahionBride but I couldn’t do a it’s all in the hair feast if I wouldn’t include the wonderful hairstyles of Grace. In here you’ll sure find inspiration for your wedding day. I would especially emphasize the hairstyle worn by the princess with a floral fuchsia tiara.
This would be a perfect hairstyle or a spring or summer wedding, even more if you pair it with a floral style gown. Another perfect hairstyle is her signature retro locs, a perfect choice if you are going for a glamour look on your wedding day.
When Grace Kelly married Prince Rainier in 1956, the world found the perfect wedding pattern. She and the prince had a civil and a religious wedding, same as their son did in 2011. The 40-minute civil ceremony took place in the Palace Throne Room of Monaco on April 18, 1956, and was broadcast across Europe.
The following day the church ceremony took place at Monaco’s Saint Nicholas Cathedral. Kelly’s wedding dress, designed by MGM’s Academy Award–winning Helen Rose, was worked on for six weeks by three dozen seamstresses. The bridesmaid’s gowns were designed by Joe Allen Hong at Neiman Marcus after Lawrence Marcus visited Monaco.
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.
