A Few of Her Favorite Things: Princess of Monaco, Grace Kelly

She was more than an actress -- she took beauty and fame to a whole other level when she became the Princess of Monaco. And she became synonymous with her name itself -- she was the epitome of Grace. 

But she was more than just a pretty face. At Grace Kelly’s funeral, a touching eulogy was read by actor James Stewart, who said ‘You know, I just love Grace Kelly. Not because she was a princess, not because she was an actress, not because she was my friend, but because she was just about the nicest lady I ever met’.

Most girls dream about what their wedding dress will look like when they grow up... and the $ they are willing to spend on their dream dress once they get there is, to some, bordering on insanity.
