This book is the first to explore Grace Kelly's personal style and how she carefully cultivated her public image through dress. The three sections, looking at Grace Kelly as an actress, bride and princess, introduce her unrivalled wardrobe, from spectacular film costumes, meticulously tailored suits and American casual wear, to glamorous ballgowns.
