Matte Finish Shortie Beaded Gloves
As a Princess, Grace Kelly always wore white gloves when she went out to events. White gloves add a touch of retro elegance to a cockail dress or swing coat, while keeping your hands warm and protected. The pearl beading on this pair is a beautiful detail. White gloves can be found at vintage stores or costume shops, but a quality pair made of cashmere or silk will be an heirloom passed down for generations to come.

Kelly was known for her love of elegant jewelery that complimented her ladylike style. This necklace is a gorgeous modern twist on a classic multi-strand pearl necklace. Designed by Darlene Martin, the piece is part of The Shine Collection. Made by hand, her jewelry is created from an array of Swarovski® crystals, sterling silver, imported glass beads from Japan and the Czech Republic, the finest quality lava, and pyrite semi-precious gemstones. Women’s Post has teamed up with Darlene Martin to offer one lucky reader a Luminiferous necklace of her very own.

Embellished Woven Organza Dress
This dress by Lela Rose takes a classic silhouette of the 1950s and brings it into modern times with the deconstructed asymmetrical skirt and unfinished edges. Featuring a crystal beaded belt, the dress has beautiful details without overpowering the wearer. Kelly was a fashion icon, and the elegant cocktail dresses she wore are still chic today, and this pale blue number echoes her Princess style.
