Grace Kelly: Style Icon

The spectacular wardrobe of Grace Kelly will be on display at the V&A. Tracing the evolution of her style from her days as one of Hollywoods most popular actresses in the 1950s and as Princess Grace of Monaco, the display will present over 50 of Grace Kelly's outfits together with hats, jewellery and the original Herm├Ęs Kelly bag. Dresses from her films, including High Society, will be shown as well as the gown she wore to accept her Oscar award in 1955. These will be accompanied by film clips and posters, photographs and her Oscar statuette. The display will also include the lace ensemble worn by Grace Kelly for her civil marriage ceremony to Prince Rainier in 1956 and 35 haute couture gowns from the 1960s and 70s by her favourite couturiers Dior, Balenciaga, Givenchy, and Yves St Laurent. V&A 17 April - 26 September 2010 Sponsored by Van Cleef & ArpelsDetail of the dress worn in High Society
This is “the dress Kelly wore when she dances with Frank Sinatra in her final film, High Society," said Lister. "It's a full-length, with long sleeves and a boat-shaped neckline. It's quite fancy — it follows the lines of her body, but it has this full, flowing skirt and embroidery from the top of the bodice down across the skirt in silk thread and diamante scattered across the bodice.” Photo courtesy of Consulate General of Monaco, New York

Meet Kim Jong Il's Personal Shopper

The personal shopper to North Korea's rulers has come out of hiding in Austria and is talking about the luxury cars, designer clothing—and weapons—that he procured for Kim Jong Il and his dictator father. Kim Jong Ryul, who had to fake his own death and go into hiding, says he even made purchases from House of Dereon and other American firms, among them mass spectrometers, used to identify uranium particles. Kim left his family behind and says he doesn't believe he will ever see them again. He says while he fears for his family, he felt the need to speak up about the injustices dominating his former country. -DBeast,0,9233.story

Christine Valmy

It’s no surprise that many people in the beauty industry are looking to make a side dollar or two. Marina Valmy de Haydu, director of the Christine Valmy International Schools, estimates that salons pay their employees around 40 to 60 percent commission on services rendered (excluding tips). But there can be a lot of hands dipping into that pot. There is “one person washing you, another massaging your head, another towel-drying your hair,” said Nicolle Cannone, a Westchester-based owner of a line of baby clothing, who gets at-home sessions with a stylist. After Mrs. Cannone’s sister became friendly with a hairdresser at a pricey Manhattan hair salon (which Mrs. Cannone did not want named as to not jeopardize her stylist’s full-time job), a deal was arranged for the stylist to come to Mrs. Cannone’s home, where both sisters’ hair is cut in the hallway at $60 a head (more than a 50 percent discount from the salon price). “The average person doesn’t really know that they can do these side deals,” said Ying Chu, the beauty and health director at Marie Claire.
