In the spirit of Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding this April 29, I am writing about another tiara-wearing Cinderella.

Her Serene Highness Princess Grace of Monaco.

She is the epitome of everything old Hollywood glamour. She is a Golden Globes and Academy Awards nominee and starred in several hit TV, theater, and movie productions alongside Hollywood's hottest leading men of their time. But at the age of 26, she left everything to marry the Prince Rainier III of Monaco and become a princess despite her roots that is so all-American and no connections to blue bloods. So Cinderella.

She has always bewitched me. To me, she is the most beautiful monarch who ever lived, while Queen Elizabeth I the most clever, and Princess Diana... well, controversial. And Kate? We'll see. 


Did you know that Hermes Kelly, one of the worlds eternal "It" bag was named after Princess Kelly? It was named after her when the designer saw the shy Kelly covering her baby bump from the paparazzi shortly after her wedding.
