Grace Kelly in London

I came back from London just a few days ago, and I have so much that I want to share with you. The first is the "Grace Kelly: Style Icon" exhibition in the Victoria and Albert museum. This exhibition was my first destination in London, since I planned my visit there from the moment I heard about it, when I was still in Israel. Grace Kelly was a beautiful Oscar winning American actress that met the prince of Monaco when she was invited to a photo session at his palace; they fell in love, and one year later, they were married. That is a real modern fairytale that happened in 1956; the time was great, the clothes were greater, the girl was the greatest. So, I was very excited to see the garderoba of a real princess during different decades and styles. The exhibition is pure pleasure, displaying everyday clothes and evening gowns of well known designers these days like Christian Dior, Chanel, Givenchy, Balenciaga and YSL, as well as less known designers ( at least for me) such as: Madame Gres, Marc Bohan and James Galanos.

Here are some photos that I took at the exhibition (although it was forbidden), matched to photos of Grace wearing the outfits.

And more beautiful photos of the princess...
