Channel your inner Grace in a new dress

Don’t you just love glamorous movie stars? Whenever I spot Grace Kelly on Turner Classic Movies, I want to run out and buy a flowing, feminine new dress.

Grace was my style icon when I grew up in the 1950s, and no one wore flirty dresses better. Remember her wardrobe – designed by Hollywood’s most famous costume designer, Edith Head – from “Rear Window” with Jimmy Stewart?

Her stunning tulle ball gown from that 1954 film sticks with me to this day – that’s the power of a great dress.

Did you know Edith Head also created Dorothy Lamour’s sarong in the 1937 film “The Hurricane”? And Elizabeth Taylor’s sweetheart gown in the 1951 film “A Place in the Sun. She also designed Kim Novak’s little black dress in 1958’s “Vertigo” and the pale green suit worn by Tippi Hedren in 1963’s “The Birds.”
