For those of you in New York:

I was able to see this exhibition over the weekend, and it is truly wonderful! I encourage you to make time to see it. The collection was extraordinary! (Including fascinating personal correspondence and the party dress she wore in HIGH SOCIETY)


NEW YORK CITY - From October 15 through 26, 2007, the Consulate General of Monaco and the Monaco Government Tourist Office in New York with Sotheby’s, in close collaboration with the Princely Palace and the Princess Grace Foundation-USA, will present a tribute exhibition celebrating the life and legacy of Princess Grace of Monaco.

The exhibition, which will be free and open to the public at Sotheby’s in New York, will feature dresses, jewelry, photographs, letters, video and other unique items, most of which have never been seen outside of Monaco.

Addy -
I know I won't have the opportunity to see it so would you mind answering a question for me? What was the true color of that party dress? It seemed to vary from mauve to light grey to pale taupe. It's one of those little mysteries that have always bugged me! (LOL - bugged me enough that if I had the funds I'd go to NY to see for myself!)

It must have been, PJ. If I recall correctly, it had a sheer net overlay too. I'd love to hear about it from someone who actually saw it.

edit: Guess what I found! I wonder if it's reflecting the true colors? See how the netting appears to be a different color than the underfabric?

Who cares about the color? What I wanna know is, do they let you try it on?
PEACE.
