legends: may.

the book legends by john miller catalogs "women who have changed the world."  given to me as a gift 8 years ago, it inspired me to dedicate the last friday of every month's post to a different legend (in my humble opinion).

this month: grace kelly (she was on the cover of may's vanity fair, so why not this little blog as well?!).  

grace is quite the mystery to me.  her style and grace (no pun intended) have become iconic, but before the world could really figure her out, she abandoned hollywood,  married her prince, and lived "happily ever after."  in her short career as an actress she starred opposite some of my absolute favorites: clark gable, jimmy stewart, frank sinatra, bing crosby, and the incomparable cary grant.  oh, and she won an oscar.  no big deal. 

and this picture?  grace AND audrey backstage at the oscars?  extraordinary:
i am in awe of this woman.

  1. A mystery and a beauty indeed! I was in Monte Carlo not to long ago and couldn't help but think of her and her prince and their tragic death...

    Thanks for sharing! I'm looking forward to this series of legends!

  2. Ah she is totally beautiful, true style.


thanks so much for the note! i love reading your comments. xo. di.
