Grace Kelly truly was one of the most stylish women of all time. She exuded such easy style and sophistication, which is perhaps why Hitchcock adored her so much. He wanted her to continue being his iconic ice-cool blonde, but she had a prince to marry (as you do) and retired from acting in 1956.
I do wonder whether she was always this stylish, I’ve been unable to find a single photo of her as a gawky teenager or before she had a Hollywood makeover. Perhaps she was just born this chic!
