{Lace Is Always a Good Idea}

I saw this white lace dress in net-a-porter and I suddenly remembered the Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn´s dresses that she weared in the same year: 1955.

  1. Just a little info on Grace Kelly's lace dress. It was an Oleg Cassini design so in the photo of Grace with Oleg she is wearing his dress ! It truly was a favorite of Grace's. She wore it to several events until her marriage. It has been on the Grace Kelly exhibition circuit that features her wardrobe and, contrary to popular belief ( fueled by mostly B/W photos ), the dress is not
    white but more on a pinkish shade.......I have seen the dress so I can attest to that. It is gorgeous, with a huge black velvet bow on the back, at the waist. It is in incredible condition.
    A stunning dress !
