More than the arresting beauty, it was the elegant persona that catapulted Grace Kelly from a barely-known someone to an overnight star. Such was the dignified self-possession of this blue-eyed beauty that whenever she came on the set, everyone went silent.
One of the prominent trends and one that Grace Kelly particularly pioneered in the world of fashion was the graceful silk scarf. The way Grace chose to tie her scarf was so distinct and versatile that the style in itself later came to be known as the ‘Grace Kelly’ style- which was marked by crossing the scarf (preferably silk) under the chin and then knotting it at the side, or near the nape. Rarely was she seen without a headwrap, and the variation thereof is still talked about.
Grace would often be seen in various Hermès silk scarves and her preference for the brand reflected further when the actress chose to drape her fractured arm using one of the iconic Hermès silk scarves as a sling. When Grace was pregnant with Princess Caroline, and was using one of Hermès bag to hide her baby bump, the brand, whose upscale clientele list includes numerous A-listers including Queen Elizabeth, had launched a line of handbags titled The Kelly Bag or the rectangular crocodile bag- sac à dépêches after the actress. Apart from handbags, Hermès had later launched a special perfume called Kelly Calèche to pay homage to the beauty.
Since the actress was renowned for her love for scarves and accessories, Gucci, in 1966 had launched a special line of floral silk scarves created and designed keeping the actress’s iconic style in mind. The scarves were designed by renowned painter Vittorio Accornero.
