Grace Kelly: Style Icon {V&A Museum, London}

From Philadelphia to Monaco, the fairy-tale story of Academy Award winning actress turned Princess, Grace Kelly is still popular decades after her death. Her classic style and elegance made her a style icon, a glimpse of her timeless wardrobe which include designer pieces by Christian Dior,Yves Saint Laurent, and the famous Kelly bag can be seen at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, England. However, you only have a few weeks left as the exhibit ends September 26. On one of my last visits to London I spent the afternoon at the V&A Museum, the transition from Hollywood actress to Princess is chronologically arranged to reflect the change and role of duties. No photos are allowed in the exhibit (as I discovered after snapping a couple of shots) therefore not much to show you. Thus, if you have a chance to see the exhibit it is a well spent afternoon!

  3. Helena-originally when I walked into the museum they told me you could take pics but failed to tell me not in the exhibit. I got a scolding LOL! But I did see those with cell phone taking pics, I guess its more discreet.
