Grace Kelly Style Dresses: Timeless Elegance and Charm

Oh Bombshells, here she is! Meet Grace. We think you'll agree - she's simply amazing.

Grace Kelly Outfits to Elevate Your Wardrobe - Catch Her While You Can

The Grace Kelly style dresses are one of our instant classics - we know this because our phones are ringing off the hook and we've had to employ more people in our little London factory to keep up with the demand. It's like the Nigella sensation of 2009, all over again.

The Perfect Grace Kelly Inspired Dress

So, what is it about the Grace that's making such an impact? Your fellow Bombshell talk of wanting to add her face-framing high collar and her nipped-in waist to their wardrobes. They're saying that she's perfect for summer weddings, garden parties, and lunch dates with friends. And they're going wild for her colours! From classic navy to chic heron blue, the floral prints, and the choice of cotton or silk dupion.

Think Headscarves and Limoncello

For me, she conjures up images of Grace Kelly in an open-topped sports car, driving along the Rivera to a cliff top bar and sipping Limoncello in the sunshine. She's silk headscarves, chic handbags, ballerina-length wedding dresses in family albums and all things 1950s.

Does Grace look a little bit familiar to you?

I wouldn't be surprised. 

With her rich heritage, rooted in the inspiration and artistry of Christian Dior - just peep at his 'Ecarlate' ('Scarlet') cocktail dress from 1955 in the V&A - and the classic glamour and prints of the Horrockses shirtwaister, Grace really is a dream of a dress. 

 

Timeless Style and Elegance With Grace Kelly Inspired Dresses

In creating Grace, I wanted to create my own version of Dior's incredible and iconic dress. Something that would sit happily alongside the esteemed and adored ranks of our Confident dress in the way she can be presented time and time over without getting the least bit old.

Grace's each and every new guise is as thrilling as the last. Her flattering, slimming set-in sleeve is softly finished with a feather-light silky lining. Her buttons are strategically placed to stop gaping, and the concealed button placket means buttonholes are invisible. Not only that, but the overlay skirt and knotted ties also create an optical illusion to skim and hide the tummy - just so.

In a world filled with loungewear and tech fabrics, with the race for 'likes' and clicks, with fast food and reality shows, there's something reassuring about Grace's old-school glamour. She evokes a warm nostalgia for a simpler time, and she's already one of my all-time favourites.
