A real-life fairy tale! Grace Kelly was born on Nov. 12, 1929. She made more than 10 movies in her career before she married Prince Rainier of Monaco in April 19, 1956. She was one of Alfred Hitchcock’s favorite leading actress, with the movies “To Catch A Thief”, “Dial M for Murder”, and “Rear Window”. Her last movie was “High Society” and then she became Princess Grace Kelly of Monaco! At her wedding, she wore a bridal gown that was made by MGM designer, Helen Rose. It was made from 125 yards of silk, 100 yards of silk net, a 125 year-old piece of rose point lace that she bought from a museum and thousands of little pearls that were hand sewn on her veil! It was the most expensive gown the Helen Rose ever made! Grace Kelly died on Sep. 14, 1982 from a car accident that occurred while she was driving and had a stroke. A Grace Kelly stamp came out in the 90’s.
