Steal Grace Kelly’s Style

Once a film star that lit up the screen in hit films including Rear Window, To Catch A Thief and High Society, Grace Kelly was a style force to be reckoned with in the ‘50s; she radiated effortless elegance and truly covetable panache.

To celebrate the release of Grace of Monaco, the new film starring Nicole Kidman, Tim Roth and Frank Langella, we’ve curated our edit of Grace Kelly’s most iconic style notes.

Crazy For Cashmere
Outside of her royal duties, Grace Kelly was a dedicated fan of cashmere. Whether short-sleeved in style or pastel in colour, the star had a wardrobe full of super-soft pieces perfect for downtime. Harrods of London’s range of cashmere knits is second to none and will see you perfectly through cool summer evenings. Bea Dewhurst-Richens, Beyond Retro’s Archive Manager suggests sporting a backwards cardigan or a turtleneck with capri pants to channel Kelly’s style.

All About The Waist
Whatever look Grace Kelly was showcasing, you could always rely on the screen siren to highlight her figure with a nipped-in waist and a full skirt. To work this look, opt for a fitted dress that accentuates your middle or a top and skirt combination teamed with a belt to showcase your shape.

Just Add Jewels
From her Cartier engagement ring to the Van Cleef & Arpels tiara she wore to her daughter’s wedding, Grace Kelly’s jewellery collection was something of a fairy tale. To add sparkle to your style, opt for fine jewellery brands Carat and newly-launched-online brand, Annoushka.

Stylish Scoop Necks
Flattering and elegant, a scoop neck can highlight the décolletage and add ladylike-luxe to many an ensemble. Kelly’s penchant for this neckline spanned across her red carpet looks to her laid-back weekend outfits. Jenny Packham’s scoop neck gowns are the ultimate in feminine glamour.

Grace of Monaco is released in UK cinemas on Friday 6th June 2014.
