Enduring style icon, actress, activist and princess, Grace Kelly is well known for her timeless beauty as well as for her roles in such classics as High Society, Rear Window and To Catch a Thief.

She retired from acting at the age of 26 when she married Prince Rainier and became the Princess of Monaco.  She was an active supporter of the arts, which led to the creation of the Princess Grace Foundation, a group that works to support emerging artists. She was also one of the first celebrities to speak for La Leche League, an organisation that supports new mothers and advocates breastfeeding.

In addition, Grace Kelly organised a yearly Christmas party for local orphans and became firm friends with Josephine Baker after a racist incident at a club in New York, in which she left the club in solidarity with Josephine Baker, vowing never to return (and she never did). She remains an enduring testament to true beauty both on the inside and on the outside.

"I would like to be remembered as someone who accomplished useful deeds, and who was a kind and loving person. I would like to leave the memory of a human being with a correct attitude and who did her best to help others." Grace Kelly.
