Girl Crush Wednesday: Grace Kelly

On the way home from D.C., I caught up on my Bazaar reading and noticed an update Birkin Kelly bag (she used the bag to hide her first pregnancy.)  The idea was born to feature the fabulous Grace Kelly – Princess of Monaco. She was a friend of the civil rights movement via her friendship with Josephine Baker, and they remained friends for many years. That she gave up Hollywood (while she was at the top of her game) to marry Prince Rainier in 1956 was unimaginable. 

She starred in Rear Window, the coolest Hitchcok film (mostly for the fashion) next to  The Birds (a childhood favorite of mine.)  Then she won an Oscar (over Judy Garland who famously said, “I didn’t appreciate Grace Kelly taking off her makeup and walking away with my Oscar.”  Hater…)

Seeing all this classic beauty really makes me feel a strong need to go vintage shopping.  How I love those 1950’s silhouettes!!!
