Recently read a biography of Grace Kelly and her elegant demeanour left a deep impression on me. I feel that her brand of classy reserve has sadly disappeared in today’s culture of overexposure with its proliferation of tabloids, reality TV shows and redundant Facebook posts. Without mystery, there is no glamour. Grace Kelly possesses that elusive ‘it’ factor, or glamour, because she knew the meaning of restraint.
Her wardrobe in ‘Rear Window’ is perfectly sophisticated and chic. She has a wonderfully luminous smile and tranquil presence that captivates the viewer.
