Here is a rare opportunity to scope out the wardrobe of a style icon. The Victoria & Albert Museum will soon showcase some of the opulent haute couture designs once worn by Grace Kelly. On display will be dresses from her many films including Rear Window, High Society, and the gown she wore during her first meeting with Prince Rainier of Monaco. The exhibition will be comprised of three sections, the first tracing her years as a Hollywood star, the second will focus on the clothes she wore during her romance with Prince Rainer, and the third will be a retrospective of the outfits she wore for her official royal engagements as Princess Grace.

Grace Kelly: Style Icon, sponsored by Van Cleef & Arpels, will run April 17th-26th September. Victoria & Albert Museum: www.vam.ac.uk
