My heart belongs to Grace Kelly

Today, I watched To Catch a Thief for the millionth time.



...and fell in love with Grace Kelly for the millionth time.

She was the Queen of Elegance. The classiest movie star Hollywood has ever known. A princess in every sense of the word.



I'm not going to bore you with a biography. We all know her fairytale story.

I just wanted to share my favorite Grace Kelly photos with you.











I even made a Grace Kelly polyvore. Yeah...this is what happens when you can't sleep and you finally have a working computer. Hahaha!


Grace

Oh, and if you haven't seen a Grace Kelly film yet, please do. I love them all so much, I really don't have a favorite. She's just that good.

Who is your favorite style icon?

I love Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn, I feel the 'old hollywood' stars just are Glamour they are Grace and they are Chic :) Following

She's so pretty. I can't believe I haven' seen any of her movies! I feel lame. I love the 60's icons, such as Hepburn. They were all so stunning.

Grace Kelly was to me everything a woman should be. What beauty, style and elegance she had.

Thanks for your words on my annoying songs post. I agree that you and I must be twins, separated at birth. You got the looks and hair, I got the height. Bwahaha!!!

Don't stop being awesome. Love you Jenny Benny!!

inanenglishaccent said...

want to know something shocking? never seen a film with her in it :O but she's beautiful, never the less xoxo

Julia, the Thanksgiving Girl said...

The bikini shot is such a great one, I like it because it seems so natural and she has such a thoughtful look on her face - not what you usually get with bikini shots, right!

As for style icons, I don't think I've ever really had one... I like a look from here, an outfit form there... There are celebs whose styles I generalyl like, but every now and then they woudl wear something that I don't understand, so I'd rather stick woth liking certain looks ;)

Audrey Allure said...

She's absolutely beautiful & such a great icon :)

Marissa said...

I love the last photo of her on the beach. It just shows how naturally beautiful she is.

Grace Kelly is a constant reminder that God gave me the short end of the stick....who looks that gorgeous after swimming with their hair pulled back and no makeup on!? When I'm done swimming, I usually look like a drowned rat.

Missy said...
