Celebrating the Legacy of Grace Kelly

Twenty-five years since Grace Kelly's passing, a series of special events will allow the public to take a glimpse inside the enchanted world of America's Princess.

From October 15th to the 26th, there will be a free exhibition at Sotheby's in New York called “Grace, Princess of Monaco: A Tribute to the Life and Legacy of Grace Kelly," featuring her dresses, jewelry, letters, photographs, video and film clips and other items, many of which have never been seen in public or outside of Monaco.

In addition, the windows of New York City’s Saks Fifth Avenue store will feature Grace Kelly-inspired creations by Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera, Ralph Lauren, Zac Posen, Ralph Rucci and Vera Wang.
