RIP-Grace Kelly 9/14/82- A History of Grace Kelly Eyewear


I think every girl growing up has a princess fantasy. For Grace Kelly, fantasy became a reality. Grace Kelly the middle class all American Girl, who modeled- became a movie star and the married a true prince– all by the ripe age of 26. in April of 1956 Grace Kelly became known familiarly as Princess Grace but her real title  Princess consort of Monaco, as Her Serene Highness The Princess of Monaco, when she married Prince Rainier III the Prince of Monaco.


I guess like all movie stars Grace Kelly was seen wearing sunglasses and I wish I could tell you who she wore, but would assume at least one pair was an Oliver Goldsmith.. She seemed to favor large cat-eye shapes.. of course, not much of a selection then..


While many of our readers were born after 1982, In 1999, the American Film Institute ranked her No.13 in their list of top female stars of American cinema, which mean you can rent or buy her movies, my favorite being To Catch A Thief with Cary Grant and Directed by Alfred Hitchcock. (Great movie)

1970 On The Beach

You can read more about Grace Kelly at Wikipedia and certainly rent the below movies.
