And this is so elegant:
And this just makes me so envious of her, her style and composure:
I can't think of another actress as elegant as Grace Kelly. She is a proper movie star, you can't take your eyes off her. My all-time favourite Grace Kelly film for clothes is High Society. I love this blue dress and matching shoes:
And this dress is possibly my favourite dress in any movie:
The colour, the sleeves, the way she looks in it. Utterly gorgeous.
I don't know about you but my pool-side attire is very similar.
Grace's costumes were as much a part of the script as what she said. The same is true of course of Gone With The Wind. I could do a very long post simply about GWTW costumes (and one day I might) but for now, let's feast our eyes on this:
The best thing about this is the hat. I adore that hat and the green velvet bow. Green is the main colour for Scarlett and this boudoir outfit is perfection:
And of course, we must mention the curtains dress! Which, by the way, I saw at the V&A exhibition recently and it's tiny. I don't think even half of me would fit in it.
A look that inspire a whole generation of women.
I shall be posting more about costumes as I think of more films that make them such a feature.
