“My father had a very simple view of life: you don’t get anything for nothing. Everything has to be earned, through work, persistence and honesty. My father also had a deep charm, the gift of winning our trust. He was the kind of man with whom many people dream of spending an evening.”

– Grace Kelly

 

 

Grace Kelly was born November 12, 1929 and became one of Americas leading actresses turned princess. She won an Academy Award for her outstanding performance in ‘The Country Girl”. Grace Kelly went on to marry Rainier III, Prince of Monaco in April 1956 and became Princess of Monaco but was most commonly known as Princess Grace. Sadly she died in September 14, 1982 after she lost control of her car when she suffered a stroke. Her daughter, who was in the car, survived the accident but we lost Princess Grace. I have always been fascinated by Grace Kelly’s life and have read, and watched everything I could about her and one my favourite movies has to be ‘To Catch a Thief”. So when I heard the Grace Kelly Exhibit was coming to the TIFF Bell Lightbox I was tickled pink with happiness. I had to work the night of the launch and sadly missed meeting Prince Albert.  I have since seen the exhibit and truly enjoyed every minute of it. So make sure to get down there to see this glorious exhibit which will be there until January 4th.

 

 

“I am basically a feminist. I think that women can do anything they decide to do.”

“The thing that made her stand out is what we call style.”

“I have always been close to flowers… to have complete satisfaction from flowers you must have time to spend with them. Bonds must be forged between you and them. I talk to them and they talk to me.”

– Grace Kelly
