Grace Kelly Style: Fashion for Hollywood's Princess.

Grace Kelly Style: Fashion for Hollywood's Princess. The deaths of Helen Rose and Princess Grace deprive H. Kristina Haugland of the primary sources of colorful minutia about the dress, and yet the author nevertheless puts together a meticulous and fascinating analysis of the manner in which the famous dress was fabricated. I was particularly captivated by the explanations of the laces and fabrics.

In style and detail the dress was conceived to complement the bride’s fairy-princess image. H. Kristina Haugland, from Philadelphia Museum of Art: Handbook. Philadelphia: Philadelphia Museum of Art, 2014, pp. 336–337.

Movie actress Grace Kelly, a Philadelphia native, wore this gown for her wedding to Prince Rainier III of Monaco on April 19, 1956. In style and detail the dress was conceived to complement the bride’s fairy-princess image. The bell-shaped skirt of ivory faille, supported by three attached petticoats, fans out into a graceful lace train; the high-necked bodice of antique Brussels lace was re-embroidered to render the seams invisible and then accented with seed pearls.

An unparalleled delight for anyone who loves fabric, design or wedding gowns in general, let alone admirers of this particular wedding gown.

In light of the modern trend of strapless, sometimes even sheer midriff or plunging neckline (good grief, where is the taste!), wedding gowns, the covered-up sophistication and elegance of Grace Kelly's wedding gown may not appeal to some. Yet of all the wedding gowns created for celebrities or royalty, Grace Kelly's gown is both the most beautiful and the most exquisitely suited to the personality of the bride (two runners-up that come to mind are Sarah Ferguson's [the Duchess of York] and Caroline Kennedy's [Schlossberg]).

The deaths of Helen Rose and Princess Grace deprive H. Kristina Haugland of the primary sources of colorful minutia about the dress, and yet the author nevertheless puts together a meticulous and fascinating analysis of the manner in which the famous dress was fabricated. (I was particularly captivated by the explanations of the laces and fabrics.)

Those who sew and design will be enthralled--and the average reader amazed--by the unusual and 'most fearfully and wonderfully' conceived construction of the gown and its underpinnings. The photography is excellent (including the crucial rear view of the dress) and the book even includes diagrams of the various layers of the gown and how the various parts fastened together. (My single disappointment was that there was no recent photograph of the bodice's lace piecing-but that has to be a minor point in light of the excellence of this book.) The remarkable coverage of the visual appeal of the wedding does not stop with the gown, for great attention is given to all Ms. Kelly's wedding apparel as well as her attendants' outfits.

The book concludes with the tale of the afterlife of the gown in the hands of the museum, and in the process recounts the evolution of conservation knowledge and its application to this fragile bit of social history.

I got wrapped up in the life of Grace Kelly as she was a rising star when I was growing up. The book itself is much larger than I anticipated and the print is very small but it is worth one's time to read it. I think she was very beautiful and marrying a Prince was a fairy tale come true. However, she was very lonely after her marriage not knowing the language, no close friends and being very far away from her family and the United States. I felt sorry for her. I loved this book.

The book offers a concise history about the evolution of Grace's personal and professional style. The photos also document the evolution of her style. I found the technical drawings and details about the wedding dress very helpful and inspirational. I hope to make a wedding dress inspired by Grace's and these drawings provide a good foundation to start with.

I, for one, think that Grace Kelly was the epitome of the most beautiful, elegant brides of the modern edge...even to Princess Diana..that dress and the work that went into it is mindblowing. I've seen the dress in person and it TRULY is BREATHTAKINGLY stunning! The lace, alone, in this modern age (although no longer available) would be over $10K ALONE! I plan to copy some of Grace's elegance in my very own wedding...a Rose Point Lace garter, the beautiful Juliet Cap...all I can say is this: It's not a Grace Kelly Bio--this is strictly dedicated to the dress and it's making: fabrics and laces used and how they were all put together. Truly and informative book besides being a wonderful reference as well as a Keepsake. At LEAST 5 stars on this. Check it out..you won't be disappointed!

i love this book. however that is to be expected as grace kelly's wedding gown is my absolute ideal. this book not only has great background information, but it has some wonderful shots with details i can't find online. it also explains all the layers, how it's worn, construction, etc.
This is really a lovely book, with good, heavy paper stock. The pictures are informative, and I especially love the line drawings showing the complexity of the most beautiful wedding dress I've ever seen. I'm really glad I bought this.
