If you remember my posts about Audrey Hepburn and Jackie Kennedy you probably know I like vintage fashion. I love how women in the past were modest yet chic at the same time. I believe there are some people that feel the same way. It is evident on how runways, magazines, blogs, and stores continue to be inspired by the looks of the past and recreate them for women living today. One of those women is Grace Kelly. 


Grace Kelly is one the most iconic women in fashion history. Michael Kors, Vera Wang, Ralph Lauren, and Zac Posen all consider her to be a style icon.   

Her style was quite like no other women.  Her style was simple  and yet elegant.  Her tastes were not over the top or overly styled which makes her relatable to most women. She was not what people consider a clothes horse. She often commented that she  held onto her clothing longer  than most people (which makes her a woman after my own heart!). She also had simple styling is what makes her looks timeless and relevant.  A lot of her looks continue to influence the runway and the summer looks trending these year prove that.

The white on white trend may be popular this year but Grace Kelly was the  queen for wearing white on white clothing especially in the form of a long dress or bathing suit cover up!

The ballerina looks as come back with tulle skirt and dresses making a comeback. The greatest ballerina/dancer look I have ever seen comes from Grace Kelly in Rear Window. 
You can this look by simply getting a wrap top and a tulle skirt.

Dial M for Murder another Hitch Thriller proved that Kelly was not only had actor chops but also great style. 
The choice of bold red suited such a movie but also is excellent for this summer's bold red trend. The lace and red are trending so a look like Grace's would be perfect.

She was not only know for her high fashion looks but her casual looks as well. She wore khakis (sometimes head to toe khakis) and flats. She had that American woman style down pack. Her casual style no doubt inspired the military/safari look.

  2. Love the post! Yes, Grace Kelly is such a classy iconic fashionista. I am in love with 1940's and 1920s fashion era, women were just so sophisticated back then. You have to show me how to do those cute collages:)
