Grace Kelly

to 4 January 2015

Due to popular demand Paleis Het Loo is extending the exhibition ‘Grace Kelly, Princess and Style Icon’ to 4 January 2015. More than 150,000 visitors have visited the palace since the exhibition opened in early June.

Paleis Het Loo is mounting a magnificent show in 2014 with the ‘Grace Kelly, Princess and Style Icon’ exhibition presenting the unique story of the fascinating and eventful life of Princess Grace of Monaco. Clothes, accessories, film clips and photographs bring to life again the tale of the princess from one of Europe’s oldest royal houses. The image of Princess Grace, born Grace Patricia Kelly (1929-1982) in the United States, is indelibly imprinted in our collective memory. As a style icon Grace Kelly was one of the most photographed women in the twentieth century and was avidly followed by the media in her successful life as an American film star, royal bride and princess of Monaco. Her beauty, character, talents and the dedication and discipline she brought to her role as film star and princess made her unforgettable and inspiring.

Even today Grace Kelly’s praises are sounded in pop songs, blogs and biographies while her timeless style and elegance serve as an inspiring example. Her name is enduringly linked to the Princess Grace Foundation-USA, a major fund that supports American dance, film and theatre students. The professionalism and significance of Grace Kelly as a royal role model and style icon are reflected to this very day in the present generation of European princesses.   Grimaldi forum Exhibition produced by Grimaldi Forum Monaco and Paleis Het Loo, based on a display at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.   For the ‘Grace Kelly, Princess and Style Icon’ exhibition a € 3,00 surcharge per person on the normal admission fee applies to adults, children above four and museum card holders.
