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.
In the original – Grace and her partner in the movie, Ray Milland, participate in a photoshoot together, I wanted to see her one.
Grace is dressed in the red lacy dress created by Moss Mabry.
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.
This day in history. Day when Grace has for the first time visited the Monaco Palace and has met the future husband – Prince Rainier.

Grace with her poodle Oliver in the apartment on Manhattan. (I suppose, it is March, 1956 and the photographer – Lisa Larsen).

The Oscar Ceremony, 1956. Nearly the last official appearance of Grace on a public action before her wedding.
April, 1956. Onboard SS Constitution during a week of a travel to Monaco. One of (certainly!) cheerful numerous parties. (Presumably, a game in “Envoys”))
This photo was taken during the pre-wedding week in April 1956 (during preparation for shootings of the small movie about the Monaco palace where shortly Grace should lodge forever).
