Love the Look

Grace Kelly in the movie High Society is absolute perfection. Her last film role prior to retiring and becoming a princess, she plays the part of "ice goddess" exceptionally well. I love that she refused to wear the engagement ring provided by the studio and insisted on wearing the 12 carat emerald cut Cartier stunner given to her by Prince Rainier of Monaco. As Tracy Lord, Ms. Kelly is wooed on the eve of her upcoming wedding by her ex-husband, played by Bing Crosby, and a tabloid newspaper reporter, played by Frank Sinatra. Love Tracy's look for her wedding? To mimic her bubble sleeved overlay, I paired a strapless dress with a silk chiffon shrug. I then added some shoes with an icy sparkle, a pretty hairclip {Tracy would never wear a veil for her second marriage} and a lovely but simple clutch to show off that utterly gorgeous engagement ring. The key to this look is understatement. You want to whisper "bridal", not scream. Let that engagement ring do all of the talking.
