Timeless like no other
Montblanc salutes one of the most amazing personalities of all time: Grace Patricia Kelly, Her Serene Highness Princess Grace of Monaco. She was a celebrated Academy Award-winning actress, preeminent fashion icon and the affectionate mother of three children. Throughout her life she embraced the multicultural, multi-ethnic world without reservation and remains an archetype for women today. Her ideals – the pursuit of personal happiness, compassion for human weaknesses and the importance of family – set timeless standards that are inherent to Montblanc. As such, the Princesse Grace de Monaco Collection underlines a commitment to create products that go beyond their aesthetic value, to embrace something more: the soul.
A modern fairy tale
With the Princess to be dressed in a grown made from 125-year-old Brussels rose point lace and over twenty-two meters of silk taffeta and ninety meters of tulle, the royal wedding in the beautiful St. Nicholas Cathedral was hailed as one of the most romantic of the century. An estimated 30 million people watched the ceremony on television. Indeed, when Gace Kelly arrived in Monaco in 1956 to marry Rainier III, Prince of Monaco, the small independent Principality soon transformed into a paradise for poets, jetsetters, tycoons, and filmmakers. Beautifully situated between Italian Riviera, the Alps, and the Mediterranean, this fabulous Cote d’Azur destination is the home of many breathtaking sites and events including the famous Grand Prix de Monaco and the Le Grand Casino de Monte Carlo, a gem of the art of the “ Belle Epoque”.
Some say the most beautiful woman ever
As one the most photographed woman of the 20th century, Grace Kelly became an unforgettable style icon and one of the most frequently biographied stars that Hollywood has ever produced. Her timeless elegance, her calm demeanour and her social dignity enchanted a whole generation. Even today, she epitomizes an iconic archetype of beauty, grace and style like no other woman.
