Grace Kelly Exhibit - TIFF Bell Lightbox, Toronto, Ontario

My daughter and I checked out the Grace Kelly Exhibit at the TIFF Bell Lightbox in Toronto on the weekend - the exhibit has been there since November,  this was the last weekend - we so enjoyed it!  I have to be honest and say that I didn't really know that much about Grace Kelly, I have never seen a movie that she made(she starred in eleven movies before she married and became Princess Grace) - I only knew her through the many photographs printed of her - but now I want to read about her life!

There were no photos allowed inside the exhibition - online images  really don't do the exhibit justice - I am only including two - her handbag and her wedding gown.   It took over an hour to view everything - correspondence, gowns, jewels, it was wonderful.    I'm so glad we went.....

The Hermes handbag which became known as "The Kelly Bag"

This wedding gown is not the original one she wore on her wedding day.

It was a beautiful dress!

Prince Rainier and Princess Grace


  1. What a great exhibit! I love Grace Kelly movies,you should watch one...they are great!

  2. Love the Kelly bag - I'm a huge fan of Hermes.

    And I have a feeling my wedding dress is going to end up looking a lot like Grace's
