Grace of Monaco: Princess in DiorThrough January 8, 2023

Fashion and mementos from the legendary life of Princess Grace of Monaco are on view in North America for the first time at Hillwood, celebrating her dedicated relationship with haute couturier Christian Dior. The special exhibition Grace of Monaco: Princess in Dior explores the longstanding collaboration between Grace Kelly, Princess of Monaco, and Marc Bohan, artistic director at Christian Dior, through clothing, accessories, photos, and more, on special loan from the Palace of Monaco. The exhibition, which originated at the Musée Dior in Granville, France, offers insights into the life of an icon, whose image was created in response to Hollywood’s wish for glamour and the desire for elegance in her stately duties. Grace of Monaco is a tribute to Bohan’s muse in the 1960s and 1970s and a celebration of their enduring partnership through haute couture.
