As an Oscar-winning Hollywood star turned Princess of Monaco, Grace Kelly had to balance glamor with royal etiquette. A key collaborator in crafting her iconic public image was Marc Bohan, longtime artistic director at Christian Dior; a full third of her wardrobe was from that label. Originally presented at the Musée Christian Dior in Granville, Normandy, in 2019, to commemorate what would have been Kelly’s 90th birthday, Grace of Monaco: Princess in Dior presents dozens of pieces from her wardrobe, from shirt dresses to tweed suits to evening gowns.
