This was the case of Grace Kelly, who became princess of Monaco in 1956 following her marriage to Prince Rainier III, and the house of Dior.Loyal to the brand from the start, Grace Kelly never failed to show her affection for Dior, beginning with the ball thrown to celebrate her nuptials with Prince Rainier III.The heroine of Rear Window appeared at the Waldorf-Astoria hotel in New York in a dress specially designed in the workshops of the French brand. This outfit was followed by a multitude of exceptional pieces worn by the Hollywood actress.It is these creations, on loan from the palace of Monaco, which lie at the centre of the Grace of Monaco: Princess in Dior exhibition that will open in Granville, France, at the end of April. This exhibition will present the two sides of Grace Kelly: her public persona and a second in her role as wife, mother, and modern woman.The exhibition will focus on the 85 dresses from Grace of Monaco’s private wardrobe, including several designed by Marc Bohan for Dior.The flagship pieces to be enjoyed by visitors include an evening dress in white silk jersey, decorated with white ostrich feather, from the fashion house’s haute couture fall-winter 1968 collection.Photographs, portraits, reports, perfume bottles and letters from her correspondence with the French fashion house will also be on display.Grace of Monaco: Princess in Dior — from April 27 to November 17 2019 at the Christian Dior museum in Granville, Normandy, France. — AFP-Relaxnews [...]

While brands all seem to be harking back to the 1990s this season, there are several trends in store for Summer 2019, notably with travel-inspired themes. Safari-style animal print, for example, is set to bring a wild side to this vacation season’s hottest looks.
Whether rocked head-to-toe, in discreet touches or in accessory form, the time is right to pounce on animal prints such as leopard, snake and zebra.
A host of brands sent animal print down the runway at the Spring/Summer 2019 shows, held back in September and October 2018. The head-to-toe look proved particularly popular with luxury ready-to-wear labels, giving rise to a bold summer wardrobe.
Still, some designers nodded to the trend with smaller touches of animal print, offering a more accessible way to wear the motifs.
Head-To-Toe Leopard Or Snake
While python print was a hit with certain fashion houses – see Emporio Armani’s super-bright neon version – leopard is set to be king of prints when it comes to livening up summer looks.
Many brands showed all-over looks, such as Longchamp, with its Wild West inspirations mixing animal print and fringing, and Elie Saab, with a full outfit – shorts, top, jacket, bag and thigh boots – for a walk on the wild side in the utmost style.
Dolce & Gabbana went for Italian-style retro glamour with a slightly sheer asymmetric dress worn with pumps and socks.
Whatever the style, summer is the perfect season to try out a head-to-toe leopard look, channeling a chic and feminine vibe with an unmistakably untamed roar. Whether at the beach or in the city, the fiercest of fashion fans can prowl with pride this summer.

Carnival Of Animal Accessories
The good news for fashion fans looking for a more discreet way to board the trend is that animal print is also coming to a load of accessories this season.
From sandals and thigh boots to sunglasses, handbags and scarves, luxury labels went all out with animal-print pieces to liven up the season’s looks with accessories finished in leopard, snake or zebra motifs.
Blumarine, for example, showed a large snake-print bag, while Saint Laurent pinned leopard-print scarves to blouse collars, and Rochas brought its subtly colourful reinterpretation of leopard and zebra motifs to bags and shoes.

They are not just for shielding your eyes from the sun. Available in all shapes, designs and colours, shades are the best (read: very easy) way to dress up your outfit or look.
Classic styles like the aviator and wayfarer never go out of fashion. Statement pairs with mirrored lenses or a bold coloured frame, on the other hand, will get you noticed among the crowds.
Here’s a look at the current season’s offerings of must-have shades.
Givenchy’s dramatic design is a nod to the abstract notion of mirrors. It is inspired by rain showers, with hundreds of cascading crystals decorating the frame.
Bally pays homage to the warm glow of a California sunset. This design speaks of a laid-back ease, though the oversized frame also narrates a more glamorous persona.
Dolce & Gabbana
At first glance, this Dolce & Gabbana shades may seem plain and simple. But balancing its slim profile and sleek mirrored lenses is a frame plated with 18-karat gold.
Emporio Armani offers a twist to the usual aviators with a double-rim metal frame construct. The design offers a fresh take on the current language of street style – cool and collected.
Want a pair of sunglasses that speaks of a fun personality? Check out this design by Giorgio Armani. The outer parts are opaque and decorated with multi-coloured crystals.
Prada is offering a mix of avant-garde style and contemporary femininity for the season. The sunglasses come with flames framing the front, which add an unconventional “pop” touch to the glasses.
Carrera’s pilot sunglasses has been updated with a tortoiseshell acetate frame and leather detail over the bridge. The iconic design remains sporty, but with a cooler attitude to it as well. [...]
