Oscar winner Grace Kelly is famous for being one of the most beautiful actresses of all time & now Mattel is helping immortalize the beloved star of films like Rear Window, Country Girl, & Dial M for Murder. Usually, I feature looks that can help real Style Darling emulate celebrity vintage style, but I was so excited to learn of the Barbie dolls, honoring the very fashionable actress. Not only was she revered as n actress & style icon, but she eventually became a real princess, marrying Prince Rainier of Monaco.
Courtesy of In Style, there are three looks that are being recreated in doll form, including a chic floral dress made famous by the actress when she wore it to the 1955 Cannes Film Festival, as pictured above. During her time at Cannes, she met her future husband & her life was changed forever. This doll costs $135.00 & it set to hit shelves in October. The gorgeous blue gown pays homage to Grace in To Catch a Thief, one of her many thriller films under the direction of suspense master Alfred Hitchcock. She starred opposite Cary Grant. Lastly, her demure & regal wedding gown that she wore on April 19th 1956. This doll will go for about $175.00, which is pretty steep, but if you’re a die-hard Barbie collector, it’s totally worth it!
“The dress epitomizes Grace Kelly’s overall classic style that really transcends trends,” reveals Toby Boshak, Executive Director of the Princess Grace Foundation.
