Awhile ago I wrote a blog about timeless fashion (Why, Don’t You Look Iconic?!). I really love the idea how some fashion does not have an expiration date. What is even more fascinating is how individuals can remain chic for eternity. Without question, Grace Kelly was and continues to be a true style icon.
Currently Christie’s auction house has several original sketches of Grace Kelly’s costumes in Rear Window and To Catch A Thief. These sketches, drawn by the venerable costume designer Edith Head, depict some of the quintessential Grace Kelly impressions. It would seem that based on Kelly’s own aesthetic, Alfred Hitchcock’s (who directed Kelly in both films) rigorous process and the incredibly talent Edith Head, a bit of fashion magic was made.
Check out the sketches that are both cinematic and design memorabilia:
