If you’re mildly obsessed with Grace Kelly’s life/fashion and can’t wait for the biopic starring Nicole Kidman (we’re even considering the Halloween costume), you’re in luck. The Princess of Monaco’s famous wardrobe and other personal items will be on display as part of the new exhibit “From Philadelphia to Monaco: Grace Kelly.”
The display (running from Oct. 28 through Jan. 26, 2014, at the James A. Michener Art Museum in Doylestown, Pa.) will feature outfits she wore in various films as well as pieces from her life as a princess, including the Edith Head satin gown she wore to the Academy Awards in 1955 when she nabbed the Oscar for her role in Country Girl.

Another beloved design featured from her closet: the famous La Bayadère chiffon dress by Marc Bohan for Christian Dior featuring a rainbow of pink, yellow and orange shades and gemstone embellishments.
“An exhibition that focuses on the depth and breadth of Grace Kelly’s life is an important acknowledgement of her impact on so many facets of the 20th century,” said Lisa Tremper Hanover, director and CEO of the museum. “Interest in Grace’s compassion, radiance, dignity and individuality has never waned. The Michener Art Museum is eager to honor this spirit.”
