Grace Kelly

I have been dying to see TIFF’s newest exhibition, Grace Kelly: From Movie Star to Princess.  They recently held a contest to win two tickets to a Michael Kors fashion show in NYC! I decided to enter the style challenge to embody Grace Kelly’s style.

This look is Grace-inspired because it emulates her timeless elegance.  My dress is by Breeyn McCarney.  I fell in love with it when I saw it on her blog, it’s part of her line, Another Word for Pink. This frock takes the classic new look silhouette of the 1950s, but it is updated with a modern, sustainable fabric.  I love the way the fabric is translucent and is as light as air.  When you wear it over a slip, I feel like it’s a cotton candy striped cloud.

Grace was known for wearing feminine white gloves with her outfits, and I borrowed a vintage pair from my grandmother, who probably wore them when Grace was a rising star. A vintage mink stole helps complete the regal look.

I’m wearing a demure pair of pumps by Salvatore Ferragamo.  A low heel is so elegant, feminine, and a lot more comfortable.  I’d love to see people finally give up their platforms.

But the piece that ties everything together is my Kelly bag. Even today, fashion’s elite tote the iconic bag named after a princess on the crooks of their arms.

There are plenty of gorgeous entries in the contest, but to help draw attention to my style and Breeyn’s dress, please like and comment on my entry here.
