This Saturday! "Grace of Monaco: Princess in Dior" opens June 11 | Hillwood Museum
Opening Saturday, June 11, 2022
Actress. Princess. Style icon
Fashion and mementos from the legendary life of Princess Grace of Monaco, celebrating her dedicated collaborative relationship with Marc Bohan, artistic director at Christian Dior, are on view in North America for the first time in this special exhibition at Hillwood. Clothing, accessories, photos, and more, on loan from the Palace of Monaco, offer insights into the life of an icon, whose image reflected Hollywood's wish for glamour and the desire for elegance in her stately duties.
Bohan viewed Grace Kelly as the embodiment of a style that was understated, sophisticated, in vogue, and tasteful, while she saw him as Paris's most up-to-the-minute fashion designer. With 83 pieces from Kelly's collection on view, the exhibition will highlight their fruitful relationship in crafting and maintaining Kelly's image, and serve as a tribute to Bohan's muse and their enduring partnership through haute couture.
