With the news that Nicole Kidman is set to play Grace Kelly in a film, the Pathe archives have delved deep to find pictures that remind us of this beautiful Oscar-winning actress who gave it all up for a life as princess of Monaco.
Before her acting career took off, Grace Kelly worked as a part-time model to support her studies. She even starred in several British Pathe fashion films. Here Grace is wearing a grey Florence Lustig evening gown.
Even in these early modelling reels there is a theatrical demure and story-telling spark to her expression and posture.
