Beauty, class, elegance and cool, understated sexuality. I'll always adore her.

In this case, a 30-year-old corpse. But you do have a point. Are dead celebrities eligible for the BOTW?

I think it was Ingrid Bergman who had that effect on me for the first time. Grace Kelly though, a classic beauty from a classic era of beauty.
Yeah, Kelly wasn't quite Bergman, but that's not exactly damning with faint praise. Up.

There are not enough upward-oriented thumbs on the planet to cover this one. Millennia of human evolutionary development and genetic refinement were invested solely to achieve the specific result of Grace Kelly.

Good choice for a babe, IMHO.

(maybe not in a row however..)

Classic. Classic. BEAUTY!

Easy Thumbs up. Her photos aren't like what we usually see in modern babes. They're always at some promoting some night club

FYI: I'm using Lacey Chabert just as an example photo of what we usually see celebs posing for.

This sounds like an interesting story.

Hell yes thumbs ups! Classic beauty, a great talent & from what I've heard, she was a classy person. The current generation could learn a lot from Grace Kelly & her contemporaries.

^Absolutely! Perfect vid for Aragorn to use: "Put The Blame On Mame"!

Janet Leigh--Marilyn--Joan Bennett--Ingrid Bergman--Veronica Lake--Lana Turner...Brigite Bardot....

The most beautiful woman to ever grace the silver screen.

There are moments in Rear Window when she is on screen where i simply melt.

Specifically this scene where she is first introduced:

Lisa: How's your leg?
Jeff: Hurts a little.
Lisa: Your stomach?
Jeff: Empty as a football.
Lisa: And your love life?
Jeff: Not too active.
Lisa: Anything else bothering you?
Jeff: Uh-huh, who are you?


Hugo - Angelic. Her, not me...
Dittos. And of course, Hitch's camera work for that scene...where she leans forward towards the camera, playful desire in her eyes...


BTW--as I stated elsewhere, I actually wrote a paper on Grace's role in Rear Window, for a film class.

She's a working woman (and successful--clearly quite wealthy); an independent woman who doesn't "need" Jimmy Stewart's character...but rather wants to be with him; a decisive, strong woman who has a vital role in driving the plot forward, making a very gutsy decision in the quest to catch the you-know-what....

In short, an empowered woman--and yet, not militant or "chip-on-the-shoulder" by any means, despite clear "How-could-you?" dissapointment in her man's (initial) refusal to see her as able to handle his "hard life".

(As I recall, I used that "kind, diplomatic feminism" to compare her role in the film to Sidney Portier's typical characters....)

Thumbs up for Grace, lovely and graceous no matter the era.

In my opinion, yes. Some of the classic Babes are supernovae compared to today's stars. Fay Wray, Myrna Loy, Jean Rogers, Maureen O'Sullivan....

Yeah, it's a great story. I think it would make a great movie.

Briefly, from Wiki:

In 1951, the newly famous Kelly took a bold stand against a racist incident involving Black American expatriate singer/dancer Josephine Baker, when Sherman Billingsley's Stork Club in New York refused Baker as a customer. Kelly, who was dining at the club when this happened, was so disgusted that she rushed over to Baker (whom she had never met), took her by the arm, and stormed out with her entire party, vowing never to return (and she never did). The two women became close friends after that night. A significant testament to their close friendship was made evident when Baker was near bankruptcy, and was offered a villa and financial assistance by Kelly (who by that time had become The Princess of Monaco) and her husband Rainier III of Monaco. The princess also encouraged Baker to return to performing and financed Baker's triumphant comeback in 1975, attending the opening night's performance. When Baker died, the Princess secured her burial in Monaco.
