A Celebration of Grace

Last week the windows at Saks Fifth Avenue's flagship store displayed couture creations inspired by garments worn by Grace Kelly and then auctioned off to benefit the Princess Grace Foundation-USA.
I was happy to see that one of the dresses used as "inspiration" was the lovely black and white beauty Edith Head designed for Rear Window. I will watch that movie just to see that dress.
While I thought Carolina Herrera's design was a fine gown with its chiffon skirt and wrap black blouse, the truth is that Head's vintage 50's dress is so perfect, so lovely that it outshines the
inspired design and makes us go "ahhhhhh" at how sublime it is.
