Princess Grace of Monaco will be the focus of a new exhibition at the Christian Dior museum in Normandy. As an actress she was known as Grace Kelly and became Princess of Monaco in 1956 following her marriage to Prince Rainier III.
A selection of around 90 items from her wardrobe will look at the two facets of her life as a graceful public figure and also a modern woman, wife and mother.
Her glamorous Dior designer dresses and tweed suits are structured outfits befitting her royal status. This contrasts with a contemporary, simple and sporty look reminiscent of her American youth that she chose for her private life. The many dresses printed or embroidered with flowers recall her love of floral paintings and her taste for gardening.
The princess would have been 90 this year. She died in 1982 at the age of 52.
The Grace Kelly exhibition will be open from April 27 to November 17 2019.
From April 27th to September 30th: it’s every day from 10am to 6.30pm (the ticket office closes at 6pm).
From October 1st: every day during the school holidays and from Tuesday to Sunday except school holidays from 10am to 12.30pm and from 2pm to 6pm (the ticket office closes at 12noon and 5.30pm).
Full price: 9 €
Reduced price: € 5 (students, visitors with disabilities and job seekers)
