Today is Grace Birthday. This photo is made near the house on Manhattan where there lived a movie star Grace Kelly, in 1956, after it has been announced engagement of Grace and Prince Rainier III, and shortly before her departure to Monaco for the marriage.

According to official information: “Grace Kelly key-set portrait from Mogambo by Virgil Apger. (M-G-M, 1953)”

I’ll also add, that this dress was designed by Helen Rose.

April, 1956. Onboard SS Constitution during a week of a travel to Monaco. One of (certainly!) cheerful numerous parties. (Presumably, a game in “Envoys”))
