Since we’ve been on an iconic and royal kick these last few posts, I knew I could not move on to a different subject without dedicating a post to the lovely, Grace Kelly a.k.a Princess Grace. Her wedding to Prince Ranier III of Monaco was the joining of Hollywood and Monegasque royalty and her dress, designed by MGM costume designer, Helen Rose, is still continuing its lasting impact even 56 years later.

Princess Grace’s gown has been the inspiration for many brides such as Kate Middleton a.k.a Princess Catherine of the United Kingdom, Duchess of Cambridge whose gown was designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen and Nicole Richie, singer Lionel Richie‘s daughter, whose dress was designed by Marchesa.
Several other gowns have been crafted in the same spirit as Princess Grace’s by various designers and ateliers. These are some of the dresses which have the closest resemblance to Helen Rose’s design.
