Member Preview Days | Grace of Monaco: Princess in Dior

Grace of MonacoHillwood members are invited to preview the special exhibition Grace of Monaco: Princess in Dior before it opens to the public!

Fashion and mementos from the legendary life of Princess Grace of Monaco, celebrating her dedicated collaborative relationship with Marc Bohan, artistic director at Christian Dior, are on view in North America for the first time in this special exhibition at Hillwood. Clothing, accessories, photos, and more, on loan from the Palace of Monaco, offer insights into the life of an icon, highlighting the fruitful relationship in crafting and maintaining Grace Kelly's image, and serving as a tribute to Bohan's muse and their enduring partnership through haute couture.

Megan Martinelli, exhibition curator, will be on station in the exhibition at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. each day to answer any questions.
