Icon

One of my lovely friends informed me that one of my favourite galleries, the V&A will have an amazing Grace Kelly exhibition running from April 17th till 26th September 2010. Grace Kelly: Style Icon will be an insight into her amazing wardrobe which traces the evolution of her style from a young style icon to Hollywood royalty. Exciting stuff!


Among the spectacular treasures on display will be the original, infamous Herm├Ęs Kelly bag, dresses from her films including High Society and the part which sets my heart racing, 35 haute couture gowns from the 1960s and 70s by Dior, Balenciaga, Givenchy, and Yves St Laurent. I Cannot wait and must see this as I missed the Golden Age of Couture exhibition many moons ago!

On a side note. While I don’t plan on doing the awesome commentary that some blogs provide on the latest runway images (frankly, they do it much better). I thought I would leave you with these two pictures from the Alexis Mabille Couture show yesterday. I’m quite taken with the vivid, half and half designs!
