The original royal celebrity: TIFF Bell Lightbox announces upcoming Grace Kelly exhibit

Before Kate—and even Diana—there was Grace Kelly, the original royal celebrity. And before she was royal, she was one of the most beloved movie stars in Hollywood. Known for her unparalleled style sense, serious acting chops (Kelly won an Oscar for her performance in The Country Girl), distinctly sophisticated accent, and, yes, her grace, Kelly is way up there in the ranks of legendary style icons. The TIFF Bell Lightbox has just announced their upcoming exhibit, Grace Kelly: From Movie Star to Princess, which will celebrate the actress by showcasing some of her most legendary belongings, including a replica of her iconic wedding dress from her wedding to Prince Ranier of Monaco, her signature Hermès “Kelly Bag,” and many of her most famous dresses designed by the likes of Edith Head, Oleg Cassini, Madame Grès and Balenciaga. Running from November 4 through January 12, 2012, the exhibit will be accompanied by Icy Fire: The Hitchcock Blonde, a film showcase of some of Kelly’s most notable roles in films including To Catch a Thief, Dial M for Murder and Rear Window as well as those of Tippi Hedren and Kim Novack.
