Her "fairy-tale" wedding to Prince Rainier of Monaco in 1956 was one of the most celebrated of the century. To commemorate its 50th anniversary, this lovely book tells the story behind her wedding gown, cap, veil, shoes, and prayer book?all given by the new princess to the Philadelphia Museum of Art shortly after the ceremony. Philadelphia-born Grace Kelly rocketed to Hollywood stardom, becoming a major box-office draw and winning an Academy Award. She also was an icon of classic American style, which became known as the "Grace Kelly Look." After examining the development of the star's on- and off-screen style, the book focuses on her magnificent wedding dress, designed by Helen Rose and made by MGM Studios under top secret security. Public interest in the star's wedding dress was intense, and it remains one of the most popular objects in the Museum's collection. Stunning color images detail the wedding dress, accessories, and attendants' dresses, which are also owned by the Museum. Numerous historical photographs illustrate the actress's career, style, and famous wedding in Monaco"--Publisher's description."@en ;
